I just got back from the dentist and found out that I need to get my wisdom teeth out, ALL FOUR, ASAP! umm…my wedding is 10 DAYS AWAY! I’m freaking out….scared of surgery anyways….but really, those 4 little teeth didn’t want to come out until now. 1 week before my wedding. i just cant believe this …

Thats terrible. But by ASAP they don’t mean within 10 days do they? If they aren’t hurting or bothering you I would definitely wait.

Yeah — he truly means ASAP. Not to be too graphic, but they are severely swollen and puss is coming out of them! 🙁
So, last mouth surgery I had I was down for 3 weeks, and am NOT wanting to look like a chipmunk on my wedding day……all this time I’ve waited for my perfect day and then now, this stupid wisdom tooth issue is going to ruin all my pretty pictures! 🙁

OMG! I think typically though the swelling goes down in 3-4 days. Get in that chair tomorrow and get the worst over with ASAP!!! And just think, you’ll have fun with the pain killers, that’ll keep the wedding stress nice and warm and fuzzy in the waaaaay back for you 😉

When I had my wisdom teeth out it was about a week before I was completely healed. I’d get in there as fast as you can!

Definitely get in ASAP – if they can rush you in the next day or two, you should be fine for your wedding. You aren’t necessarily even guaranteed to swell – when I had all four extracted, I swelled really bad (true chipmunk face), but was totally back to normal within a few days. My brothers, on the other hand, didn’t swell AT ALL (not fair, right?). Maybe you’ll get lucky!

bakerella — LOL, good point! I would love to get the wedding stress off my mind for a bit! I’m happy its only 10 more days!

I sure you can put that off until after you get back from the honeymoon. If they aren’t bothering you, I’m convinced it can’t be urgent enough that it has to be done in the next 2.5 weeks.
EDIT: Oops! Missed the update. Maybe see if there is somethingyou can do to help them but not remove them until you get back. I’ve know numerous people who are still swollen a week after getting wisdom teeth out and I would not chance that for my wedding day.

ICE ICE ICE it will keep the swelling down! and make sure that if there is any bruising, to hire a great makeup artist! 😉 Good luck!

I would get it done. You don’t want to be in pain on your wedding day. I had my wisdom teeth taken out when I was 16 and the swelling only lasted a few days.

I agree with the bees, ASAP if you can get in. Mention to them your wedding concerns and I’m sure they’ll do all they can to help you prevent swelling and give you the best instructions on aftercare. And be very careful about what you eat/drink after and NO STRAWS… believe me, dry sockets are no one’s friend. Best of luck FutureMrsCox!

Get in ASAP, let them know what’s going on, ice ice ice, and remember that if you are swollen, that’s why the good Lord invented photoshop.
