Today, I got all my wisdom teeth out. Have you ever thrown up after mouth surgery? Stomach acid in your bloody gum holes is just as fun as it sounds. FML
lspicknall tells us more :
Sorry darling! You really do just fall asleep then you wane up you're done! Just make sure to have ice packs and lots of cold soft foods

FYL is right, having wisdom teeth taken out is no fun. OP, ask your dentist for some topical anesthetic! It temporarily numbs the area, so you could find some relief that way. Also, make sure to follow the instructions they gave you for tending to the gums exactly as they are written; the only thing worse than acid washing over your bloody gums is acid washing over your infected, bloody gums!

That happened to me, actually. When I got home from the surgery, I took a nap on the couch, then when I woke up I suddenly felt the urge to run to the bathroom and vomit. It was more blood than stomach acid though, I figure I must've swallowed a lot of it during the surgery and my stomach didn't like that. As soon as it was all out, I felt so much better. I just flushed them out with the little syringe they give you and went back to napping on the couch.

well mine was similar, I woke up, tried to run to the bathroom but got tripped up on the blankets and tried to keep it in by holding my hand over my mouth, that didnt work. It came out of my nose in two long bloody streems on the pale carpet. So it was not only in my mouth, all over the gauze and holes but also in my sinuses! And I had to clean the carpet all drugged up and sick (thanks mom) but it never came out and I got grounded.

Nope. It's recommended IF they grow out badly and it becomes uncomfortable to eat. I just got my green card recently (I'm a Brit), went to the dentist, and when I was done with my cleaning they asked if my wisdom teeth were hurting. I said no, and they told me to come back if anything changes. It's not mandatory, though.


As stated before me, it is recommend that you remove them because they can cause pain or can make the rest of your teeth crooked. It's only really necessary if your mouth doesn't have enough room for them to grow out, though.

On another note, sorry Op! Maybe it's the pain medicine? The crud that the prescribed to me made me throw up for 12 hours straight! :(

11) No, they don't have to be pulled. I had braces not too long ago, and my wisdom teeth were coming in slanted, so I had to get them removed before they were even coming out. They're useless anyway, so it did no harm.


I never had mine removed. on fact, my bottom right molar had to get pulled and they said that since my wisdom teeth were in good shape, they expect it will replace the missing molar. but My crowded mouth thinks otherwise and will not allow it. so. ugh.

My wisdom teeth never even existed (I suppose it's because my mind hogged up all of the wisdom ;) ). But if they grow out straight, they don't get pulled. They're pretty useless, though. I've seen many wisdom teeth grow out completely on it's side, which would crowd the teeth horribly. I know that in Egypt, it's a crazy idea to pull them out. I'm sure other countries also like to keep things "natural."

You are not obliged to remove your wisdom teeth. My dentist told me that I didn't have to remove my wisdom teeth as they are growing correctly. However, if they warn you, it's so that they don't push on the rest of your teeth causing them to become crooked.


When I got my wisdom teeth removed, I somehow chewed my stitches out and kept getting stuff in there.
Had to use tooth picks to get it out.
Didn't hurt, but it felt so weird, I stopped eating for a month.

I had mine removed in January (it was miserable) and all I could have for the first 2 days was yogurt and water. Then I could eat some toast. Every little thing is painful though.

My husband lived on instant mashed potatoes and gravy for about a week after he had his out. I have 3 of mine. The 4th one had a cavity, I had it filled, then it abscessed under the filling, then I got a dry socket when it came out. Don't wanna do that times 4.

Nope. IMO toothache is worse than giving birth, I've given birth twice through c sections but one of them I was in labour 3 days. I'd rather do that again than have chronic toothache.
