So long, wisdom teeth!

I received more letters today, which turned out to be the dates for having my wisdom teeth out.

They'd given me a lot of trouble over the last few years, not the teeth themselves, but they kept rubbing my mouth and giving me painful ulcers and infections, not to mention the extra achiness this brought on my jaw. So I asked for my doctor to take them out earlier than planned, as otherwise I'd have had to put up with this for another year and a half, as my surgeon wanted to remove them 6 months before surgery as they won't fit in my mouth once my jaw is moved back.

I opted, no, demanded to be asleep for the process. As strong as my stomach is, teeth being pulled is a whole other gross story.

So! good bye teeth on the 8/11/11 at 7:15am!

Wish me luck!


  1. Wisdom teeth re a breeze as long as you don't try to eat food too soon and you ice a lot the first day. I stayed away from anything with pieces that would get caught in the extraction sites and the icing helped so much that I had no swelling by the second day. Good luck!!! :)

  2. Aw thank you! It does help knowing its not too bad! I know its a simple procedure, but I sort of see this as my first real step closer to my jaw surgery date, so I'm rather excited!
