I had them all taken out in hospital before they came through so as not to move any of my other teeth.

What is the reason for the removal?

I was a dental nurse at a surgical/anaesthetic clinic and they usually dont remove them without good reason.

Are you having it removed because it's giving you pain?
If so then have it taken out - more likely to continuously give you pain until it's taken out so best to put up with a few days of pain than for it to keep going on.

Oh dear... you have my deepest sympathy! I hate dentists!!

The ones at the very back that grow in you late teens onwards. Not everyone has 4 though, some people have none or just a couple.

your wisdom teeth usually grow in after your about 25 ! they will be at the very back of your mouth on the bottom !very painfull if they become impacted !!!

My wisdom tooth has become impact so any food trapped gets infected and hence have problems now and again !

oooow

I'm 17 and have all 4 (i feel so proud)

yeah, i'd have it done... because... dentists know what they're doing?
#12
Well i'd say go for it. If you wait they'll no doubt deny treatment because you're : too fat/thin/smoke/don't smoke/drink/don't drink/have one toe longer than the other/have a bald patch.... Basically ANY excuse they can think of to save the money.

Just get it removed then. Normally once they start to cause problems they always will.

All extractions are different depending on how easily the tooth comes out.

I still have my four (all cleaned up) in a jewelery box (sad).

Ouch, it's gonna hurt.

Got all mine removed at the same time in hospital nearly 2 years ago, the b*ggers always left me with inflamed gums and had to go.

Spent 3 days with a face ballooned out, purple and black, then brown, brusing for a period of 2 weeks or so.

Worth it tho, good luck.

Although some do things just for money.

When I worked away for a while I visited a dentist with a toothache. They showed me an x-ray and pointed out this and that problem and told me I need such and such expensive treatment. I hadn't told them I used to work for a dentist and I knew they were not telling the truth. I said I would go away and think about it. Six months later I visited my regular dentist who said there was nothing wrong with it.

Not the only case I know I'm afraid.

I dare say it's not as bad as it used to be but when I was 10 I visited a dentist and he filled most of my back teeth. I never had any problems up till then. I found out many years later (on That's Life! of all places) that he had been doing that as a matter of course as he was getting loads of money that way:roll:

Pretty common though, I noticed alot of people who had been referred seemed to have extensive treatment from newly qualified dentist (i.e. they seemed to be practising).

Had a little discomfort gettting 4 removed, longtime ago, next day was a nasty taste in the mouth for a while. Salt water didn't really help :(
But I guess it kept my mouth nice and clean and briney :)

Only thing I can say is don't wind yourself up and get stressed about it. :)
#28
Do, do get them out.

Yes you will feel like Pooh but you feel so much better in the long run.

My new ones quite young but doesn't seem overly enthusiastic on that point. From what he told me and a bit of wiki searching im a walking version of the great barrier reef with a mouth brimming with hidden coral:?

I really don't know why people don't like going to see dentists. In all seriousness, when I had my tooth pulled last week I would have fallen asleep in the chair, apart from all the pulling keeping me awake. Damn thing didn't want to leave and a great battle was fought lasting at least 30 minutes :giggle:

So I say again...

mstiny, get em pulled:w00t: :thumbsup:

Its the cracking that keeps me awake!!!
mstiny just get it ripped out you'll feel better for it.

You could always take arnicca before and after to help with the brusing if you are so inclined.

If the hospital will do it will it be under a general anaesthetic or sedation or is it just with a local. I would certainly opt for sedation. A couple of years back i needed one of mine out but at that time we were short of docs at the hospital to do this so they said i would have to have it done at the dentist with just a local. I am already terrified of the dentist so i paid £140 for sedation to get it out. Apprently my oh says i was still in pain during the "pulling" and had to have 5 more locals but i cannot remember a thing. Thats the good thing about sedation. You can't remember. Also after i was a little swollen but no bruising and it felt a million times better than the pain i was getting from the wisdom tooth. I shouldn't of had to pay though. They were cutting back costs and wisdom teeth were no longer done in hospital. I have since (this year) been to hospital to have another tooth pulled and that was an ordinary double tooth. I really can't remember anything about that one and it was FREE..

I think you should go for it! Im 21, had an impacted wisdom tooth in March. I reaaaally didnt wanna go through with it, but my boyfriend convinced me, and yeah there was a few days of pain after it, but was worth it in the end!
