Removal of these little devils is difficult, painful and absolutely excruciating. Extracting teeth that are firmly rooted in your jaw causes some major problems. If you’re lucky enough to be put under general anesthesia, you probably won’t hear the drilling and smashing of your jaw and teeth being separated. Local anesthesia is a whole different story. Patients are welcomed to sit in on a first hand experience of blood flying, teeth wrenching, head ripping entertainment. This gory experience may be one to share after supper has concluded. As a regular addict of Tylenol 3's, I can assure my dentist that these little ditties will not be sufficient enough to mask my jaw wrenching pain of eating.
The actual operation is the easy part when put into comparison with the recovery. Diets of a recovering wisdom teeth removal victim can be noted as yop, liquid, jell-o and any other liquefied beverage not consumed through a straw. If you’re planning the surgery around Thanksgiving, you best be prepared to drink your Thanksgiving supper blended in the magic bullet. Yum, think of the flavours involved: mushed cranberries, soggy turkey, chunks of gravy and perhaps some green peas for some good measure. I have exactly 49 days until I took can join the club. My semester will end with a bang: Finals, apartment scrubbing, packing, moving, unpacking and teeth ripping. Fantastic I do say.
