My face is like a freakin Chipmunk!!!

Just got my wisdom teeth out and they are a bitch. Mash Potatoes and Jamba juice for me. Oh man I am so hungry I had 2 snack packs and a little apple sauce for the whole day. And right now I am eating well yeah ummm.... mash potatoes. I burn 2500 calories doing nothing and I have only eaten about 500-700. Well atleast I will lose some weight. I just need to get my stitches stop fucking bleeding from the smallest things. AHHHH!!!!

that sucks (literally)

for my wisdoms, i just gargled and swilled with whiskey and let the buggers come thru.

i was blessed with all four of them! but i also have a big gob and so could accommodate them!

Just coz you don't understand it
Doesn't mean it makes no sense!

ah yes, wisdom teeth surgery. so satisfying when you finally can eat real food again instead of trying to chew with just your front teeth.

paolo, good luck to you with those things. mine were all comin in easy but i got them removed anyway becuase of my dad. he had his til he was in his 40s, they got infected and he had to have some of the spongy bone removed from his jaw i've never seen someone in so much pain. risk of infection is why they say to just get em removed anyway, i'm sure you've heard that before.

Oh that's always fun. I had them yank all 4 of mine in the same sitting. All 4 were impacted and 3 had to have bone cut away to be removed. Thankfully, I got put under for that one. I fell asleep, woke up, and poof no more wisdom teeth. Then came the week of nothing but soup.

Oh do NOT eat yogurt for a few days. Sure it seems like a great idea but yogurt is mostly bacteria. Bacteria + mouth wounds = PAIN

I have a word limit on my cynicism

well that's something for me to look forward to!

no i have never heard of that before. i figured their removal was just down to a lack of real estate to accommodate them! seems a bit whacky to have them removed in case they might cause problems later.....

anyways, i have had my wisdom for about 15 years now. thus far only my antoerior pair have suffered being chipped and worn due to the biting down on them being of an uber high pressure.... but when the tooth splits, the dentist fills them and then gets me to bite down so he can drill a perfect fit.

no spongey jaw bones thus far (touches wood!)

i don't think it is really that common for bad things to happen if you do keep them when you have room, it's just one of the more common bad possibilities if you do keep em. i will also add that some of my family members seem to have a gene for weak teeth (my dad included). most likely you'll be fine, i think. i'm sure your dentist knows better than me

I must have had a really good dentist (or a really high pain tolerance) when I got mine out. I never had issues eating afterwards and I didn't use any of the painkillers I brought home.

You probably didn't have impacted wisdom teeth which is the main reason people swell up. Mine were not impacted and I barely swelled. My buddy has severally impacted teeth and he very much looked like Alvin.
