Pretty sure I need to get mine removed for sure. Was told by the dentist a while ago that I should go and have an oral surgeon look but never did. Just wondering what kind of experience it is because honestly I'm terrified of this kind of stuff.

    If they’ve grown in, you’ll be fine. If they have to cut your gums, GG

    Just had my right two pulled 3 weeks ago.

    Recommend getting them all taken out at the same time. Recovery sucks for the first 2 days, then after that everything is fine. Once stitches are out, then you’ll be fine.

    One of them I can see coming out but just the one.

    First couple of days were miserable for me. Make sure you flush the pockets out and also rinse your mouth with salt water.

    This too, the recovery was more annoying than the procedure.

    They’ll probably give you a bunch of strong painkillers so I wouldn’t worry too much, at least that’s what they gave my brother when he got his removed

    This. Just watching them do it made me super nervous and made me sweat like crazy. Even if there was no pain :lol:

    Had the same experience, really not bad at all. Word of wisdom, put a dry teabag on top of each socket for the first 24 hours or so, helps with healing and preventing dry socket, had a bunch of friends try this with me and worked really well.

    Really feel like I would have to. If I was awake through it I would probably just be freaking mentally the whole time

    I had both of my bottoms ones taken out and it wasn't bad at all. Hear a lot of horror stories about it but mine was fine

    I never went under just had anaesthetic in ma gums

    The thought of these things is often worse than the procedure.

    I’ve had quite a lot of dental work due to having my jaw broken in 2 places. I used to be terrified of going to the dentist, but after that it doesn’t bother me now. As long as you have a good dentist, you’ll be fine!

    I’ve had 4 pulled and 1 partial while I was in the military. It’s really not that bad. I’ve got a high tolerance for pain, so as soon as they were done with the procedure, (I don’t think they used enough asaesthetic to keep me under), I hopped up and was pretty much good to go. My friend drove us back to the dorm and I was alert the whole time. I took all my meds the first day per instructions. Didn’t take the Oxy anymore after that because I didn’t have any pain. The only pain I had was for the first 10-15 Minutes after eating something for a few days and that was in.

    ultimately depends on your pain tolerance imo. And make sure you clean the sockets out properly so you don’t end up with an infection or dry sockets.

    If you don’t go under you recover faster.

    The sounds are worse than the pain.

    Not too bad when I had it done. The biggest annoyance was that it was tough to eat for a few days, but no big deal overall.

    I need to have mine out in the next month. I've had 2 tumour removing major surgeries so i'm really hoping this won't be as bad.

    But I tell you what, the most painful pain to me is toothache. You just can't shift it, and it is so so frustrating.

    One side has been slowly coming through for years, only occasionally causing a bit of pain. The other side hasnt even broke through my gums. Is that weird?

    No, mine took years and only bothered me every now and again.

    i.mean the only one side coming through. I can only imagine what its like when theyre coning through fast cause the pain can be bad when it comes on.

    Exactly what I'm going through right now. It's only on the right side on the bottom. I have a canker sore right next to it on the side so that honestly might be the main source of discomfort but regardless I can still see it coming in

    The best method is to use a chisel and pry it out yourself.

    You will just get stuck in the dentist health cycle if you go.
