I got all 4 of mine out at the same time when I was 22. Don't do that "one side at a time" crap. Just get it over with when your insurance kicks in. Oh yeah, and I hope you're fond of soup 'cause that's what you'll be eating for up to a week.

it doesnt count much to do extractions most places. You can probably get them removed for about $500 (all 4). I know most dentist offices it is cheaper to pull a tooth then to do a complicated filling.

You think four wisdom teeth are bad? Try having EIGHT.

I had one taken out about 2 years ago, and then the final 3 last month. I wish I had done it all at once. Soup, yogurt, ice cream were my diet for about 2 weeks. I had a dry socket on one side, and a huge bone sliver on the other. Not a fun experience!

I had mine done last April, and the total was $2450, but that included all visits, and he didn't charge me for my complications 6 months later either. I must say that my wisdom teeth extraction was the most complicated f#cked up thing I've ever put my body through. I had dry socket in all 4 and 6 months later I had got an infection in one side, my cheek/jaw swole up to a golf ball size and was FULL of puss....but I will stop with the details before I make someone But with duel insurance it only cost me $24 So I am not complaining

Mine just popped right out, likity split. I've had cleanings that hurt more. I threw my pain meds away w/out even using them. More proof I'm a freak.

The Navy dentist gave me 1600 mg of Motrin, then injected my face with a lot of procaine and then brought out the meanest set of plyers I have ever seen.

My two upper wisdon teeth popped right out with a minimum of him yanking on them, the two lower ones did not want to leave, so he got out the "spoon", hammer and chisle and went to town.

One of them he had to split in two and then when he took it out one half of the roots broke off, so he was digging for them with the spoon.

The other tooth he actually braced his foot on the lower ring of the dentist chair, had one of the nurses hold his back and he yanked on it after using the spoon to rip away the gums that had grown around it.

That one made a pretty loud "pop" sound when it came out, and that's the hole that kept bleeding for two days.

I went back to work the next day with my mouth packed full of gauze, both of the women who worked in the office saw the blood dripping from my lips and the blood soaked gauze and got sick.
The Commander sent me home for the next three days.

how's your teeth today?

make sure they use some sort of anasthetic. They forgt to with me...

Then I found out the hard way that i was allergic to Codiene, threw up over twenty times in a two-hour period. No anasthetic and no pain-killers. That sucked.

all I can say is, buy more Jack Daniels.
