Horrible, couldnt eat probably for a week.

burgerman m
it only hurts for a lil bit u wnt feel it cuz their gonna put u to sleep good luck B-)

Its not as bad as your building it up to be. It is uncomfortable though. Listen to the instructions carefully especially the part where they tell you how to avoid getting dry socket.

I got mine out last summer. And it was pretty bad. The first day was the best because it didn't hurt that bad, and I slept a lot from the medication. The second and third days were the worst. Your mouth will gets swollen, so keep ice on it. And eat alot before you get them taken out because afterwards you wouldn't be able to eat much at all.

got all four taken out at once, was dazed and drugged first two days, then just really sore. gargle with salt water so you don't get a dry socket. ice packs and crushed ice will be your best friend for a week! it really isn't that bad, just uncomfortable depending on your level of pain tolerance. hope this helped!

Don't eat for the first 2 days, it will be hard but trust me. You will get more pain than pleasure from it. Start off with yogurt on the 3rd day, and apple sauce. don't get any food in your holes until the 5th day when you can properly clean them, lest you want very stinky breath.

Well mine had to come out due to having braces. And they hadn't fully came out of my gums. I was put to sleep so obviously it didn't hurt during. But my body didn't take well to the drugs used to put me to sleep. I was thrashing about. And I woke with blood on my clothes and where I was laying.
The afterwards is more an ache than a pain. But it does hurt a lil.

painful ! I was in hospital for mine, a day surgery. Then i spent two weeks eating sweet potato soup and scrammbled egges because i couldnt eat, and i was completely out of it cause i was on loads of medication

Well for mine I was completely put under with an IV. And I HIGHLY recommend doing that. They just put the IV in and I fell asleep and when I woke up, it was over. I slept the rest of the day. It was easy. I would refuse to do it any other way, becuase with numbing, you might not feel the pain, but you will feel tugging and pulling and it will be very uncomfortable. I very much recommend being put to sleep.

▶The only thing that hurts at all is the anesthesia shot. Then you're out of it for a while. No worries, all's good in about a week, and you get to eat lots of ice cream!

You're worrying over nothing. I had them removed a few years ago and i did not feel a thing. After the procedure i continued everything like normal.

I had 2 sets. One set was growing out instead of up. They were constantly scraping the inside of my cheeks, causing bleeding and pain. I had to have them cut out. I was terrified! I had put it off because of fear and I had infection as a result. (I HATE pain!) I didn't know it but that infection was causing my headaches and fatigue. Turned out to be the best thing I ever did! I was out cold while it was done and given pain meds when I woke up. I had very little pain and felt so much better after about a couple of weeks. Don't worry.....it's a breeze!

i was awake during my removal which wasnt to fun. i was numbed or whatever, but when the dentist was pulling them out, there was a pressure in my mouth like i have never felt before. it didnt hurt at all it was just a really weird experience. i was sore the next day and you cant drink out of a straw for a couple weeks but besides that, it was better than i expercted. youll be fine! good luck =]

It was several days before I could go back to school, but it wasn't that painful. They are very good at managing pain post-op. The worst part was waking up from general anesthesia.

I had 8 teeth pull including my wisdom's and they knocked me out to do it and when I awoke it was no big deal. I was missing 8 teeth but it didn't hurt

Wasn't too bad at all. I was totally nervous and in the end convinced myself that It was like going into a fight and losing three teeth, the only difference was I knew I would lose going into it. Psyching up was the worst part. The dentist had told me he could have the three problem wisdom teeth out in 15 minutes and had them out in 10. The two on the bottom were not through the gums yet so he had to slice my gum drill the teeth till they shattered and extract the pieces, the stitch up the gums. Done in minutes. Most important thing was not to get put out for it. Since I had a local anesthetic I could bite down on cotton wads to stop the bleeding and seriously aid in the healing process. I had it done on a friday in case I needed to heal all weekend, I had a toasted fried egg sandwich for breakfast on saturday morning and ate whatever after that. Don't get put out you won't swell up as bad and you will heal a lot faster. It's not that bad, just seems scary.

I just got the uppers out. The worst part was when they numb the inside on both sides. I always think the numbing process is the worst no matter what they do! The sound of your tooth being pulled out is bad, but you have so many drugs in your system you don't feel a thing! Over all the process was very fast. They gave me some pain pills to take home, but I didn't use a single one. I just went to bed early so don't plan to do anything for like eight hours after you will be wiped.

stock up on pudding, yogurt, apple sauce, ice cream. stuff you like that is soft. The next day, about 24 hours after, you can eat real food if you do so very carefully. try to get stuff your fount teeth can chew. I was starving for real food by then.

I was unconscious, all 4 were impacted, and all 4 were removed at the same time when I was 23.

My pain experience was this: it hurt quite a bit initially, perhaps a 6 on a 10 scale, then over the next 2 weeks the pain ramped up to a constant 7 - what they call dry sockets.

I did not take much medication for those 2 weeks. I made a decision to go about my life, concentrate on work, etc., in spite of the pain.

You may have an easier time of it. Your attitude will, in part, determine your experience. Decide that the temporary pain will be bearable, that it is worthwhile, and you will be fine.

I came out with chipmunk cheeks! It's was bruised from all the tugging, but luckily the Novocaine helped a bit!

The part I hated the most was eating soup for a week while blood was still gushing! Ewww! I was basically eating a bloodily mixture soup!

It was alright. They had me count backwards from ten and before I knew It I was out in the car. I was pretty loopy for a day and it was weird having little holes in the back of my jaw... but it's really nothing to worry about.

One nasty issue that can develop, however, is dry socket. You'll want to read a little about it and how to take precautions so that you don't wind up with it.


I just had mine out a little more than 24 hours ago, but I have nearly no pain with the vicodin. I'm still on a liquid diet even though they say I can eat soft foods, but I just don't feel like getting something stuck back there. Just make sure that you get Your prescription painkiller (Usually Vicodin) immediately after your surgery, because you will need it directly after your numbness wears off. I did not have my vicodin for nearly an hour after my numbness wore off, and I was in alot of pain! But other than that, things have gone rather smoothly. :)

I had all four of mine out at the same time. They were not impacted so that made it easier. I had local anesthesia and was awake for the whole procedure during which all I felt was pressure, but no pain. I drove home and took a nap on my parents couch and proceeded to drool blood all over it. When I woke up I took a shower and went out to a party that night. I was mildly sore for the next day or two, but it was really no big deal.

Always witty..never shi**y
They gave me a valium...not a vicodin....a valium. It was dental strength. I couldn't drive there or back under the drugs so my dad went with me. I think I was 14. Anyway I was sitting down waiting for them to call my name and reading a magazine. They finally called me and I stood up...my dad who was sitting next to me grabbed me before I collapsed. I was lighter than a feather and they helped me to the back where I got some sleep gas and dont remember anything until i woke up. My mouth was sore. Sometimes they have to cut your gums to get the teeth out, but mine were out far enough. One tip- If you're a smoker do your best to hold off on smoking for a long time afterward. If you do smoke...smoke as little as possible. Cigarettes make your gums turn to dry sockets. They hurt get swollen and can get infected. Rinse out with warm dry water if you think anything is getting infected or theres a black fluid in the water when you rinse. Also smoothies might be the only way you can eat for a while, but remember to get a spoon and dont use a straw. GOOD LUCK!
