Everybody's different, depends on how well your roots are gripping, and how strong your teeth are.

...and if they're impacted or you get a dry socket. But I'll spare you my horror story because my brother's came out without a hitch. If they aren't sending you to the hospital for immediate surgury, you're ahead of the game.

I got the dry socket. Nothing like a little vacuum tube scraping the surface of your jaw bone sucking out the infection. yummy yummy. Was more painful than when I got hit by a car at age 13. Sorry, couldn't spare you.

OK, I've learned my lesson....NEVER, NEVER, read these threads during lunch time. Just brings a whole new experience to a little sweet&sour pork and steamed rice.

I had four dry sockets. For six months, once a week I experienced that. Three healed up sorta fast but the last one, the one that showed up on the xray as a quarter sized hole in my jaw was the real treat. But lost would already know if he had that. I had the entire office called in to look. Nothing like gasps and oh my gods to make you feel good about going in for surgery the next day...... oh jeeze lost.. sorry

I guy I knew in high school had his wisdom pulled out and he got an infection and they had to remove his lower jaw. Poor guy never looked the same. Food just fell right out of his mouth. I asked him about what the odds were of that happening to someone else and he said (well he sorta said, it was more like a whistle/mumble) that the odds of that happening was only like 25%.

So it looks like you'll have a 75% chance of keeping your lower jaw. One in four ain't bad!

Good luck!

Don't worry, I had all four of mine pulled, two in one sitting, two in another. The only horror story I have is that I had sore gums, and two of mine were impacted, and they broke one trying to get it out. Dry sockets are when the blood clot comes out of the hole where your tooth used to be, if you follow the dentists directions, you'll probably be okay, just make sure you stock up on milk, bananas, and peanut butter and bread. Soft foods are your friend.

If you aren't being put under, then you're ok. They would have you go to the hospital early in the morning for blood work ups before that, so you'd know. I was under for a couple of hours and ended up leaving the hospital still groggy because I was "combative and unruly".

Had all 4 of mine done at once. Just numbed my mouth. The pop of my teeth breaking, so they could get them out, was kinda fun.

Don't eat things like hot frenchfries or rice until the holes are all healed over. Getting hot(or really cold) food stuck in the holes before you're healed, really hurts.

I had 2 at a time done. Had no problems either time and ate what I wanted that afternoon (Dr didn't know). Pain wasn't that bad either. Deadning shots were the worst part.....

I had all of mine taken out at once. Went through surgery where they had to have the gums pealed back and the teeth roots and jaw bone cut. I was completely under and don't even remember the trip home from the dentist.(good drugs) The bad part of mine was I had to work the next day in 100 degree heat and was not able to take my pain meds.

Doc gave me instructions on what I could eat so I got very sick of potted meat, Vienna sausages, and soup after about a week but I never got a dry socket following his instructions.

I had 3 of mine taken out at once. No major problems, just the normal amount of pain. It wasn't so much the pain, as you can feel the yanking. Anway, the 4th will never come out. It's actually grown UP into my nasal cavity, and if they pull it, I'll have a hole between my nose and my mouth. They say it would major surgery to fix the problem. I've opted to just live with the pain everyday.

Both of my top ones grow into the sinus cavity. Never coming out and I never have any pain. Besides, with them gone, it would be gross every time I sneez. :barf: We need more smileys to choose from!

I wonder if the infection could spread enough around your head and neck to make your head fall off???
