Wisdom Teeth!

So, I am getting my wisdom teeth pulled in 3 days. I am honestly terrified. I am being put to sleep because, well, I need to be! haha They are all 4 coming out and they are impacted, so they have to do surgery and everything. I'm not as scared of the pain as I am about being put to sleep. I have never been put to sleep before, so I don't know what it's going to feel like. And I am scared of what I am going to feel like coming out of it... AHHH

If you have had your wisdom teeth removed before, please let me know what your experience was like. :)

I was freaked out too- but you quickly fall asleep and it's easy-schmeeze. They may ask you to count to 10 or something, and I was like "1-2- zzzzzz" haha

I promise, it's gonna be alright! Make SURE you take pain killer as soon as you're home, because once the numbness wears off it can be agonizing, as both my bf and I found out!

Getting put to sleep is the best part! I had mine taken out months ago. The worst part is the first few days.

But make sure you have you paid meds ASAP. I had to wait 45 agonizing minutes for the meds while my mouth throbbed. Just get the meds and you'll be fine.

So...I have never gotten my wisdom teeth out but I had 2 other teeth taken out and I was put to sleep. It was a breeze. Easy Smeezy! Being put to sleep: they used an IV to do that I didnt even know or notice when I was being put to sleep. The next thing I knew I was awake and done. The Pain: they give you medicine, take it if you need it, dont act tough, if it hurts, then take it :D
