There was indeed lots of blood. It was lodged so deep between my molar and my wisdom tooth that they essentially had to surgically remove it. :(

Damn those are awful. Even if you were able to get it out, it'd be 38 hours later, after all your attempts it would have come out on its own after you gave up, and you'd have already flossed your gums till the bled trying to get that out.

Seeing as how popcorn kernels got stuck between the molar and the wisdom tooth, I think they should be removed to stop it from happening again. That's why they are typically removed. They create food traps that can cause infection exactly like what happened here.

71, I have had my wisdom teeth removed and I still get food stuck between my last 2 molars instead. Actually I had the exact same thing happen to me that happened to OP but between my back molars.

Ignore all these people telling you to get your wisdom teeth removed. Last time I checked most random strangers on the internet did not have degrees in dentistry. Listen to your dentist, and if they recommend they're removed get a second opinion to make sure they aren't just trying to have you pay for more unnecessary surgery.

Even if they're small, they should be removed. My dad still has his and now has a ton of problems because of them.

72- yes food can get stuck between your molars too, however those are much easier to floss out. Wisdom teeth are sometimes weird in their orientation and this can cause issues like OP had. If they were oriented correctly, I doubt a kernel could get so lodged down there she would need surgery to remove it. If she wants to avoid this in the future, she should simply remove them.

Just so you anti-wisdom advocates know, in most counties wisdom teeth aren't routinely removed and we manage just fine. Sounds very very painful :( Popcorn is the food of the devil.

I think the only reason I would get them removed is if they started making my other teeth move. However they're hard to get to and I'm worried about developing cavities in the future.

Pop goes the weasel.

I fill so bad for you. Whenever you eat popcorn, be wary.. now you know the drill.
