    thanks guys, had no problems or pain when my last wisdom tooth came through, so i'm scared! :'(

    good luck, i was petrified of having one of mine pulled out few months back and after having it done i can honestly say im no longer that scared of dentists, it didnt hurt at all.

    really? thats's reassuring there's not much to pull on mine though, only been fully through the skin for a few weeks but still really hurts

    If you can, take a massive swig of rescue remedy before you go in.

    can i not make that vodka?

    What time are you going, 2-30?

    ...and don't forget that you may be sad about going today, but a Dentist looks down in the mouth every day.

    Best wishes in any respect.

    11:30am? That's a day off work (at least). Going at the beginning or end of the day means you don't get to drag it out.

    Also, with an appointment at 9am, they are already running 20 minutes later for no fathomable reason. At least by 11:30am you can be assured of a few hours of out-of-date magazines & bratty kids to listen to. Sounds wonderful! Wish I was going now...

    you can go for me if you like!

    id say the injection to numb my gums hurt more than taking the tooth out, i could feel him pulling it but it wasnt painfull, it might be different for everyone but if i had to have another tooth out i dont think i would be as nervous as last time.

    my kids go to a private dentist and when my eldest had to have a milk tooth pulled (it was stuck in her gum and should of fallen out ages before) the dentist rubbed some anesetic gel on her gum so the injection to numb her gums didn't even hurt! i doubt i'll be so lucky on the nhs, lol

    when ive had fillings in the past i never had the injection to numb my gums, im more affraid of needles i think, but since i had my daughter last year and after having loads of blood taken in my pregnancy and when i had my gallbladder out i think im use to it now lol still dont like it as it makes me feel woozy but i know it has to be done.

    I'm thinking I'll be having a wisdom tooth out after my next check up in a couple of weeks! Not too excited about it! Really wish I'd looked after my teeth. Had a root canal 2 years ago - but in fairness i had no pain at all, was expecting the worst! Good ol' injections. Good luck!

    it really does have to be done i suppose, would be lovely to finally get rid of this constant toothache. i'm hoping it's just growing pains but i doubt it because it's fully through now and is still painful
    i've had two children yet i'm still scared of a dentist appointment, lol

    I love the dentist.

    I like my gleaning teeth after I have been and I trust my dentist not to hurt me.

    the thing is i do look after my teeth really well, it's a brand new tooth that's causing all the trouble :-( the only other thing i've had done (which put me off for life!) is i fell off a horse when i was 9 and snapped half my front tooth off, the dentist had to drill it down which was so painful before he could put a cap on it. it was replaced with a porcelain veneer when i was 17 and it looks the same as all my other teeth now, you really can't tell. i'm hoping my veneer never falls off, i've heard they're really expensive, luckily i was a student at the time so i got i done for free

    Most are good.

    Tell him you are a little nervous, good luck :thumbsup:

    Good luck OP, been waiting ages for my wisdom teeth to come through properly so they can be taken out, hope it goes ok for you :thumbsup::)

    I hope it's not been too traumatic OP, I think it must vary as to how bad the procedure can be! My first one was rather hellacious and the recovery was horrible but I had one out yesterday and not only was the procedure itself absolutely fine, but my recovery seems to be pretty good too! I had minor discomfort last night and I'm in absolutely no pain today whatsoever. I've taken no painkillers and have no swelling, so I'm thanking my lucky stars tbh... I've only eaten soup or bread and butter so far but I think I'll be able to eat normally again by the end of the week.

    Fingers crossed I just don't get this dry socket thing that I keep reading about!!

    if its a decent dentist and put the jags in the right place it wont hurt at all, i went through a root canal surgery a few months ago and didnt feel a thing, the only sore bit was my jaw after keeping it open for over an hour

    says it all, i have no wisdom teeth :oops:

    Ive got to have 4 wisdom teeth out, and at the hospital too. Fun fun!!!

    Banned

    I had a wisdom tooth out about 4 years ago. The pulling of the tooth didn't really hurt at all. I think I had about 7 injections in my gums first!

    My jaw ached for about a day afterwards but it's honestly nowhere near as bad as you think it will be

    I hated the dentist so much, that I went private, and paid to be sedated each time (ie: IV sedation). At £ 200.00each time, its not cheap, but atleast the dentist can get on with it without me knowing. (and Im a 24yr old bloke)

    just returned from the most traumatic dentist appointment i've ever had was sat in the chair for an hour and almost in tears by the time i left :-(
    never been to that surgery before and was seen by a polish dentist who'd only just started there. she didn't seem to answer any of my questions. when i first got there she told me i should have both my wisdom teeth out and was going to book me an appointment with the hospital then she changed her mind and said, we'll wait and see, even though i'm still in agony with my tooth and she said it was in an unusal position. she then squirted my tooth with so much peroxide it went down my throat and it feels like it's burning now the polish i had done wasn't nice either, took forever and i got absolutely soaked. well now i have to go back in next thursday for a filling and another one the following week for teeth which have given me no problems and i still have wisdom tooth ache.
    feel absolutely miserable now

    Sorry to hear it was so awful. I am a scaredy cat too when it comes to dentists. I dread visits weeks beforehand..so I really feel for you. If the visit was that bad, why not do yoursefl a favour and find another one? Yes, even if it costs you money by going private. I always feel worse when a dentist doesn't explain things properly and have in the past gone private because they made me feel more at ease. At least you're done for today, hope things will be better for you next time. But I would seriously look for another dentist if I were you...

    If it was really bad and you felt you weren't given a decent level of care, then you could have a look here: which.co.uk/adv…jsp

    Maybe it's worth trying another dentist and getting a second opinion?

    Well at least we know that luck wished from HUKD's isn't very lucky
