Tooth extraction seems to be dreadful, but you will never regret having removed your impacted wisdom tooth!

Having my impacted wisdom extracted, now I really won't feel the pain of the surgery!

I had my impacted wisdom tooth removed.

It was growing very very slowly, and the dentist warned me almost a two years back about its bad effects.

But, I told the doctor that I would bear the pain while it grew, and I was very confident that I won't get infection even though it was growing inclined and pushing the adjacent tooth with great thrust.

I could feel the real pain of it growing so big and odd.

I used to have cysts on the gum-line and swollen gums because of this slow growing impacted wisdom tooth.

But, as I said, I managed to bear the pain by regularly maintaining my oral hygiene by way of regular brushing and flossing of my teeth twice daily, morning and night.

And the day has come as it grew big and bigger and there was not enough room for it to grow any more as it was impacting on the adjacent tooth causing great pain.

And I could not any more avoid seeing the dentist. As soon as she examined my teeth she ordered an x-ray. She showed me in the x-ray how the lesion had already set in around the root of the adjacent molar tooth.

I was totally convinced and told her that I felt very sorry for not caring for her early precaution and advice to go for an extraction two years ago when it was just beginning to grow.

Then, she gave me a course of antibiotics for 5 days before the extraction was done.

Though the antibiotics gave some relief from the gnawing pain, the real sigh of relief came when she showed me the tooth pulled of after the tooth extraction procedure which you can see in the following videos.

Don't be scared of these videos, they're meant for relief from the unbearable pains of the oddly growing teeth.

Never try these methods of tooth extraction

Look at the above image showing the horizontally impacted wisdom tooth in the left mandible. I had the similar one with multiple roots in my right mandible.

The dentist was so kind and she extracted it with great care not causing me much pain.

And here are some videos I have chosen to show you how you should not try these Extreme Tooth Extraction methods.

Never try these crude techniques:

I was born with half wisdom as two of them never came out and there is no sign of their existence either.
None the less I am a happy 28 extracting two of them which did come out and flying internationally the next day, perfectly hale and hearty except for the bleeding.

The bleeding was the most cumbersome for the whole day. I kept on biting the gauze until I could not resist sleeping in the night.

Also I was spitting it many times, that would have made the bleeding worse.

Wisdom teeth says much about how we perceive them.

Yea, I was not wise enough to heed the advice of the dentist to get it extracted when it was just growing and started giving pain.

I am so glad you are past this now and no longer have to endure the pain. A very educational post, Rathnashikamani. Thank you.

Nice thing is my wisdom tooth can no more give me that excruciating pain.

But the adjacent molar has sufficiently weakened and it needs RCT, and the dentist is going to drill and fill it soon.

Thank you Steve.

Not everybody's wisdom teeth give this much pain necessitating for extraction.

Thank you Siva, for the wise comment.

I didn't know how my tooth was really extracted, but these videos tell me how it would have been done, cutting, grinding and all that surgical procedure, but I know that it's all for the wellness of my own teeth.

Thank you dear friend Stella for enjoying the laughs.

Though the first part of this page may give an impact of a jaw-pain, the later videos are for laughs.

You said you were given gas - I didn't get you, could you please tell me what it means?

Toothache is one of the worst pains in the world and it's very hard to ignore something that is so close to where you do your thinking.

Glad you are feeling better.

Good info. Thanks for sharing.
I just had one wisdom tooth
removed by pulling and tugging
it out with my fingers after a
few months of pushing the
shaky tooth with my tongue
and fingers. I keep it as a
momento and even wrote a
poem about it. Hey hey :)
