Urgh. Mine are tearing through my gums right now. Hopefully I won't have to have them out but they are already pushing my bottom front teeth across each other so we'll see... :-\

How come only 3, incidentally?

I had 2 out without gas, ivs, pills or sexy nurses. It took 20 minutes in and out. I guess I was lucky.

The good bit is you get to run your tongue over the gaps and it's quite novel for the first few months. Then familiarity breed contempt and life goes on.

12 is probably a bit young unless you were one of those freaky kids with a beard and an unusual air of confidence in the showers after rugby practise.

Mine are tearing through at the moment too, and really taking their time too! Both my parents had to have them out, so I guess I'll be back under the surgeon's knife too.

LOL no thats not me.

I got some teeth they grew through my gum up the back of my mouth when I was about 12 and I have absolutely no room at all up the back for more teeth

wisdom tooth removal is easier if you are older. once the roots are fully mature, it is pretty easy to remove. otherwise, the root might snapped off when the tooth is removed and then some additional digging (minor gum surgery actually) is needed to remove the part that remain in the gum.

i have all 4 removed when i was about 40. a few shots of novacaine and out they come.

mine are almost fully in, they hurt like a ***** about every 6 months when they move in more... theyve already pushed all of my bottom front teeth all mucked up- they used to be perfect after 5 years of braces... my dentist told me i couldnt see him again untl i got the wisdoms out, that was 3 years ago.... meh when you become a man you pretty much say *uck it to everything:D

The only reason i could see talking myself into getting them out now is the garunteed vicodin for the recovery:D mmm... vicodin:)

I had 2 removed when I was 25, 12 years ago and seing on TV what was happening in Yugoslavia helped me accept the pain. Yes, it was that bad. The gap was not correctly closed and I had to drive back to the hospital at 6 in the morning after a smeepless night. As the guy at the door wasn't convinced it was an urgency he had me to ring the docter on duty myself. 2 weeks later, the 2nd tooth broke during removal. :D

I had all mine removed when I was about 17 (before they started coming through), as they were all impacted. Had to have a general anaesthetic and stay in hospital overnight.

I don't know what they did to me while I was out, but my chest was yellow and purple with bruising for a week, and my face was the shape of a football. It hurt like hell for a week, and I'd wake up every morning with my pillow covered in blood.....nice!

They didn't tell me it would be that bad before the op but, as the doctor said, if he'd been honest then I probably wouldn't have had the op in the first place :p

Well, I must be the only one here who had their's removed before their teens. Valentine's Day, 1994... I was only 12! All four were coming up diagonally towards the teeth in front. They were a good 10 years from breaking skin, but were literately pushing my rear teeth OUT of the gums. Was given a local anaesthetic, 6 shots of novocaine, and after one hour of slowing sawing the wisdom teeth into smaller parts, it was all over. Man, I never want to relive that. The taste of blood for the next 2 weeks was the worst.
