Get a big fat chocolate milkshake afterwards.

It's not near as bad, at least for me, than what people made it out to be.

Wasn't bad at all for me. I had all 4 taken out at once and they were all impacted. I was back at school the next day no problems.

I found it wasn't as bad as everyone told me too. I had all 4 out impacted, was swollen and the muscle drugs they gave me had me drowsy for about 2-3 days and you won't be eating solids for a couple. Other then that it wasn't as bad as I was worried it would be.

I agree that, for the vast majority, wisdom teeth removal is almost never as bad as we fear it will be. I advise using common sense. They'll give you instructions post-op and it will be wise to follow them (ex: don't use a straw for as long as they tell you not to use a straw).

It wasn't too bad, apparently when I was waking up, I was more concerned with the fact that I thought the dentist stole my cell phone over anything else. I was out of it. Lived on Boost shakes for a couple of days, and took as much Vicodin as I could. PROTIP: Say Vicodin ****s with your stomach and get yourself some Percaset. You'll thank me later.

I remember when I took a girl I was dating at the time to get hers done. When I came back, she was walking to the waiting room surrounded by nurses and sobbing hysterically. I'll never forget the look one of the nurses gave me...a hysterical mix of 'I'm so sorry you have to deal with this,' and 'please get her the **** out of here.'

The suction can rip out the blood clots in the holes where your teeth used to be

I got into an argument with the nurse. I kept trying to get up to go to the bathroom and she kept telling me to lay down. I got pissed, saying if she just told me where the fcking bathroom was then I would be fine. She told me, let me get up and I ended up pissing all over myself and then eating shit on the way out of the bathroom. I remember none of this.

As bmulls said, using a straw after having teeth removed apparently increases the risk of developing dry socket, which is the breaking down of the blood clot. Here is a short link: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alveolar_osteitis

Very important to note this occurs in just 1-3% of extractions.

Let me ask you a question, does this happen with you?

I went to the dentist the other day and there was new hot dental assistant who did the cleaning.

So after the cleaning and the x-rays, she told me if I don't start flossing better, I'm going to get gum disease.

Do you think she liked me?
