    i got mine out last monday, and on wednesday i was back to normal.
    my doctor said that mine just popped right out.
    i couldnt eat like hard hard foods till about saturday (5 days later)

    but no the holes are not forever, they will eventually close up and just be gums in the back of ur mouth.

    around like saturday (5 days later) the stiches were annoying because it felt like there was food stuck back there but it was just the stitch, mine just all of a sudden dissappeared on sunday...so im guessing they came off and i swallowed them wen i brushed my teeth, or ate food.

    and yea doing the salt solution was nasty, but to me it was better than tasting the blood.

    just be patient, it will all be over soon and everything will be forgetton

    Hope you have insurance because this whole thing wont be cheap. Luckily my insurance covers 80% so its not bad at all.

    I just had my wisdom teeth taken out recently. I had my top 2 done at the end of April by my dentist. I had my bottom 2 done at a specialist at the end of May. I would have had the bottom done at the dentist, but since they were a little closer to the nerve she wanted me to go to specialist. Luckily mine werent impacted, so it was just like having any other tooth pulled.

    When I had the top 2 done, they gave me tylenol with codeine as the pain killer. I only had to use a few of those, and didnt need any stitches. For the bottom 2, the one came right out, but the other one they needed to drill away a little bone to get it out, but for that one they gave me Percocet for the pain killer. Those are strong as a motha ****er. You always hear people talk about how strong they are, but those are ****ing strong. It was only like 15-20 minutes after taking it I felt completely dizzy and lightheaded, which is exactly what the warning label said may occur. That is some real strong **** there.

    For the bottom, I only needed to get 1 dissolvable stitch which came out after about 5-6 days. After 3 days or so I could feel it getting a little thinner, but a few days after that, it finally came out. How long yours will last will depend on how many you got and how involved the procedure was. Luckily, mine were out through the gum just like any other molar so there was nothing to it. Just 2 days of eating jello, mashed potatoes and apple sauce for both times and then I started more solids again like egg salad, etc....

    Like someone said, you will have holes in your mouth so eat slowly. My top 2 holes completely closed and healed in about 2 and half weeks. My bottom ones havent fully closed yet, but its getting there. If you need to clean it out, just use a Q tip or something, just go very slow and easy.

    I guess I kind of lucked out with mine because all but 1 were just like having any other tooth pulled. Even the one where they had to drill the bone didnt take too long. I had everything done under just regular local anesthesia. Ive always said as long as I dont feel any pain, no need to knock me out. Im just glad that whole ordeal is done.
    ALL HAIL TO THE FINS.

    Where a buck's enough to see their stuff, at the nudie bar.

    mine cost about three hundred to get them all done, my parents have pretty good insurance im guessing, because all my other friends were having to pay like 500 @_@ and i couldn't imagine not having any pain meds, when i woke up from my anesthesia induced haze the first thing i did was take some pills i hurt so bad...

    That would be 300 after insurance pays. The whole thing was probably well over a grand, especially since you had all 4 done, and got knocked out. General anesthesia costs even more. You can see why insurance is important.

    Taking a pain killer immediately after the procedure is usually what they tell you do to this way when the numbness starts going away, its not one giant transition into throbbing pain.

    I was surprise with mine though, the one tooth where they had to drill some bone away was obviously the most involved of any of my 4, but I only had a little swelling which went away after 2 days. Like I said, I kind of lucked out with the whole thing.

    I had all 4 pulled at once also, cost $1600 but insurance paid for the whole thing. Was only on painkillers for a day and was eating solid foods the night after the surgery. Just worse for some people then others, obviously.
