I've had wisdom teeth out - not impacted, just to give more space. Really easy. Apparently they haven't got much root.

Where are you having them out doziduck, dentist or the hospital?

Had all 4 of mine out in hospital and it was fine. Needed a few painkillers for a couple of days but very little swelling or bruising.

I had all four out under a general anaesthetic in a hospital about fifteen years ago - no problems at all apart from a bit of queasiness from the anaesthetic.

Another "all 4 out under a general in hospital". The anaesthetic made me cry a lot and my face was really swollen and bruised for a few days but otherwise OK. Felt very wierd afterwards - I could actually open my mouth really wide for the first time!

I had two wisdom teeth out with local anaesthetic. The first was so easy that I was still waiting for the dentist to pull it out when in fact it was already pulled and I hadn't even felt it. The second however was severly impacted and involved 2 operations and a waiting period in between and it was all horribly painful.

dozi it completely depends on the tooth . Some come out very easily,(even if impacted) some need a bit more persuasion.
