Sucks balls. Good luck. My jaw was so painful I couldn't even open it to eat for about five days. Other people I knew have had better luck than me. Everyone's experience is a bit different.

Tell whoever picks you up to video you and ask if you are good to ride, and see what nonsense comes out.

Edit: liquid Vicodin is your friend

Had all four removed when I was in the service. Two were impacted and they put me under for the operation. Woke up just as they shattered the third one to remove the pieces. YEEE-Ouch!!! A shitload of demerol later, I didn 't care if they went ahead and removed all my teeth! :thumbsup:

You with look like Alvin from the chipmunks, but vicodine will be your best friend afterwards. Be ABSOLUTELY SURE to take the first pain pill BEFORE the pre op sedation wears off! I forgot after my operation. That, is a room in hell you do not want to visit!!

Seriously, your biggest concern will be avoiding "dry socket!" Be sure to ask your dr. about engaging in strenuous activity so soon after. If you dislodge the clots, you will be in a world of shit!

....aside from all that? -Meh- :dunno: It's not so bad! :D ;)

Pain wise it depends on the person.

For me, I had all 4 wisdom teeth taken out, two were impacted and had to be broken up, and I was up and about as soon as I woke up from the anaesthetic. No swelling, not much pain and had no problems eating/drinking liquids the same day.

However, my sister went through the same thing and was in bed for 3-4 days and was unable to do anything except sleep and lie down.

As far as snowboarding goes though, seems like a bad idea to do it so soon since you'll still have massive holes in your mouth that will still be clotting and healing. You're meant to be avoiding strenuous physical activity while the hole heals up, so it's not really an issue of pain, but just the healing process requiring time and low impact activity.

And once you get those vics in, you'll be able to open your mouth wide enough to drink a beer:giggle:

Wasn't so much the extractions but the vicodin/percocet (can't recall which) that had me feeling like a floating head, vomiting for three days.

Just allow your body time to heal. Snowboarding will still be there.

I had two lowers pulled... Eventually... They didn't want to come out, and the dentist almost broke my jaw pulling out the first one. The second one he had to break into pieces to remove.

Took a Tylenol 3 the day after, and was fine the day after that.
