wisdom teeth

    So, on Tuesday, my left upper wisdom tooth started bugging me. I didn't really think anything of it because the upper ones bug me all the time. They came in when I was 16, crooked, with big holes in them, and are pushing up against the rest of my teeth. Usually any kind of toothache I get is temporary. Well, come Wednesday night, it was so bad I had to leave work early. I called in the next day and Friday I was miserable when I was there. I left as soon as I could and went to the dentist. They took xrays, hooked me up with some Hydrocodone, and booked me an appointment to get all my wisdom teeth extracted on Thursday.

    How many of you got wisdom teeth? Did you get all 4 or only some or even just 1? Were there issues with them? Did you keep them? Or did you have some or all removed? How old were you when they came in? How old were you when you had them out?

    I'm trying to decide if I'm going to get them all pulled or just the two problem ones. They quoted me $2400 (before insurance coverage) for all 4, and I can't afford that.... if I leave the two that are fine, that will cut the price in half. Gah!!!! I haven't even paid off my hospital bills from a few months ago, now this. Really?!

    Had all four removed...that being said you can get a nasty infection leaving them in. My dentist said people die from infections like that. I would get them out if I were you.

    I had all of mine yanked out of my mouth. I hate going to the damn dentist.
    Mine came out when I was about 16 also and they didn't give me any problems
    until I was about 26. But I know what pain your going through and it sucks. I
    had shitty insurance and I dished out about 1400.00 for both sides. But after all
    it made my mouth feel better. They were also pushing up against my teeth. Do your self a favor and get those Fookers yanked out.

    Must be nice peppa and crazy horse. :rolleyes: My insurance will cover 500 for the first year I've been with them. It will be 2 years this month I believe but you know they're probably gonna round it down to save money..... bitches. If by some miracle they will consider it 2, I can get up to 750.

    Holy bagoo Rally! 6?! That's insane.

    Midnight Cowboy, I think they're infected pretty bad right now. I started getting sick Thursday. My sinuses are all jacked up and the drainage is irritating my throat. I lost my voice yesterday at work. I had a few people tell me I felt like I had a fever. I know its from my teeth because I never get sick and my allergies are under control.*sigh*

    You know, I find it weird that they didn't prescribe me antibiotics. :confused: Can I go under if I've got in infection?

    I am no Doc CrazyK9 but I would at the very least get on an atibiotic don't wait on that. Especially a fever that indicates some sort of infection and yes your teeth can and WILL absece and lead to infection of sinus. Go to the doctor.

    I had all 4 of mine taken out, thru out the years, if its your mollars all the way in the back, get rid of them all if they are bothering you, they r not that important as the rest of the teeth and premollars,as far as I know, your dentist cannot proceed with surgery if your teeth are infected, as the anestesia could have no effect on your mouth.

    only my uppers came in and completely backwards, but i had enough room in the back for them to not even bother me, and they have nothing wrong with them, other than me having to get used to me chewing my gum once in a while on accident. so i never bothered to get mine removed.

    I had all 4 of mine taken out. All were impacted, laying on their sides and growing towards the rest of my teeth. I'm glad they're gone.

    You definitely sound like you better get those things out ASAP before you get bad sick. Good luck!

    I got all four of mine taken out when I was 15. It was only a very mild pain by the time they were removed, but they were fully developed. Waking up from anesthesia was so much fun :D
