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.
Oh man. Getting wisdom teeth out is bad enough. Doing anything afterwards hurts, I can't imagine how throwing up would feel.
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! :(
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."
Oh wow! That sounds properly, absolutely disgusting. Feel better OP, and make sure to eat and drink!
That sounds disgustingly painful. But at least you didn't shit yourself. Nothing is worse than that.
