And it sucks. I was in the surgery room for 45 minutes they said, and when i woke up i could not walk be myself, but that wore off i a few minutes. But now i can't feel my face yet as the stuff they numb you with has not worn off yet, it was really bad on the ride home, i could only blink one eye and only one side of my lips would move. Its impossible to swallow anything right now, i can hardly move my jaw. Everything i try to drink just runs back out.... and i have to have gausse (or however its spelled) pads in the back of my mouth for two hours (or until the bleeding stops) and that leaves my mouth hanging open and since i can't feel my face that leaves me drooling everywhere, which is kind of gross.

At least they game me some good pain medication for when the numbing stuff wears off and it really starts to hurt. Also i can't eat anything hard for a couple days, possibly up to a week, so i'm stuck with pudding, yogurt, oatmeal and other 'soft' foods.

How many people here have had there's removed? Anybody have any tips on how to get them to heal a little quicker?

I remember I had to have some of my milk teeth forcibly removed when I was a kid. The dentist did exactly the same thing to me - my entire face was numb from the anaesthetic, I couldn't talk or move my facial muscles and I had this gauze stuffed down the back of my mouth that tasted of TCP or something.

Not an entirely pleasant experience, I'll agree.

I had my wisdom teeths removed just to get my braces on. That was 2 years ago. It took mine to heal for 2-3 weeks. Hot soup could help ease the pain a little and help heal a little.

I need to get them removed sometime during the winter. I spoke to some people about it, since I don't like the idea of some fucker sticking needles and sharp knives where they don't belong.

Mine haven't grown in yet. I'm kinda worried. I have big teeth. They might have to knock me out in order to remove them.

Been there, done that. Three different times, with a total of 16 teeth pulled. You'll be just fine as long as you watch what you eat for a while and are careful when you brush.

Someone wants to get my teeth out they're going to have to forcibly restrain me. Dentists wanted to put a brace on me years ago but they didn't get that on, and it hasn't done me any harm through not having it, evil dentists. But yeah, if I were you I'd be glad the numbing stuff hasn't worn off yet.

I may have to get mine out. Unless they need to come out they are not comming out.

I had one filling about 6 years ago, and got a few pices of teeth removed over 2 years. As I got older my teeth liked to break apart when I lost them insted of comming out in one piece. All they gave me was novacane. That stuff is the best. I can leave without any side-effects from it and it keeps pain away for a few hours.
