I had mine done in April if 1981. All four, just like you.

They drugged me up so much I was out for 48 hours, don't remember a thing.

When I woke up and they told me it was Friday, not Wednesday, I freaked.

I had all four done at once as well about ten years ago. They were all impacted so they put me to sleep (well i'm a wuss when it comes to pain so that had something to do with it too) for a few hours to break them out.

After the surgery they put gauze in my mouth. On the way home while I was still high as a kite that gauze pad worked loose and I will never forget how terified I was. I thought it was my tongue! I was convinced they had accidentally cut off my tongue and just left it in there. I was freaking out so bad they had to stop the car to get me back under control and convince me my tongue was still there.

On the up side atleast they give you some good pain medicine!

None of mine ever came in. They are all still impacted under the gum, and they are all in there sideways (north/south) laying on their sides. Many dentists freaked out when taking X-rays and seeing them there, and immediately wanting to remove them. Been there now for some 42 years and don't bother me.

I had all four of mine pulled a few months ago. Pulled the bottoms with no drugs. Tried the tops and they hurt too much so they gave me some gas. A few hours latter they stopped hurting, and healed up in a week.

Good thing your not a woman.
My wife was pregnant and had to get them out, no freezing, no gas, nothing.
She lived, but I hear about all the time.

Same here. Different dentists have raised the alarm for 25 years, but they've all had the same recommendation: I'll know best when it's time for them to go get them, if ever.

I had all four removed last spring...one was impacted. I was nervous (my first blood pressure results read like a 50 yr old 300-lb mcdonald lover's would). They knocked me out and half an hour later, they were done! The worst part was the queasy feeling from the drugs and the pain assoicated with where they stuck the novacaine needles (that's right..they knocked me out and numbed me up! in that order of course). The pain killers were a great relief, and I enjoyed Frusion yougurt during my recovery.

The pain quickly diminished over the next few days. The pain of the impacted tooth site was the most intense. I still had slight discomfort/pain after two weeks which is normal. I think I stopped taking the painkillers after about a week, Advil when needed after that.

Believe me, it's nothing to worry about for those who are due up for the operation. I was nervous too and even posted on another forum about what I should expect (Am I nerdy? yes.). It's nothing...drilling is worse. Also, the younger the better. My doctor had diagrams of teeth at certain ages, and the root goes deeper into the jawbone as you age. Patients over 40 would be in agony.

:lildevil: *Manicial laughter* :lildevil:

I had mine done a little over a week ago, all four. I'm in the stages of later recovery. If they knock you out and do it, you don't feel a thing and you become real funny! I apparently had the whole office in stitches (No pun intended) after I was Doped up. I truly lived up to my name that day. You'll prolly not feel any pain exceeding what you're feeling now so don't freak. I'm morbid so I enjoyed running my tongue over my stitches and holding the blood stained teeth they yanked out. It ain't so bad kiddo.

No damage will be done, as long as you get them removed.

heh, u are lucky! anways here's a lil' tip i got from my friends, drink a lot of pineapple juice before the operation! not like the day of, but like a week before. all of my friends who did it said they had no pain after the pullings. i'm just waiting on when the dentist is gonna say when mine come out :shhh: *also, the mouth heals the fastest out of any other part of your body.
