    Mine are sprouting up... they don't hurt much though.
    Maybe you should go to the dentist if they hurt badly.. perhaps you need them taken out (it seems a lot of people have them removed because they grow funny or whatever)

    Go to your dentist, as they might have to come out.

    Or try clove oil, bit it tastes vile

    Having them out isn't scary! And if it's under general then you won't know a thing

    Hope so, im becoming more used to the idea now, but apparantly coz my wisdom teeth came thru at an odd angle they've caused my back teeth on the left side to decay and also had chemo when i was younger wich apparantly causes tooth decay, i now have to have 3 teeth out...

    I had mine extracted under a g/a - you'll find it's a doddle - especially when they give you the "pre-med". One word of warning. They DID tell me that certain anaesthetics tend to exacerbate dreams - especially when coming OUT of anaesthetic - and that some people tend to "verbalise".
    When I awoke - I couldn't help but wonder at the secretive grins on the nurses faces.................

    They prefer not to do it under general these days, I wanted to have mine done like that but was eventually persuaded to have it done under local.

    The operation wasn't that bad, just hurt like **** for a week afterwards, and that was just having 1 out. I'm supposed to have another 2 out but trying to put it off now. :rolleyes:

    They've just opened a orthodontical day-surgery unit at my local hospital. Average turn around time is 4 hours. You'll be in and out faster than you can say "qwik-fit."

    They tend to be a little more careful at hospitals. Remember - it's your RIGHT to insist on a g/a - REGARDLESS of what the authorities may or may not prefer. Don't let them browbeat you.

    Here's a tip for you. (Sorry it's an old one - but it works.)


    As you recline in the dentist's chair - reach behind you and firmly grasp his wedding-tackle, look at him and say "we're NOT going to hurt each other, are we?"
