Dentist:"When's the last time you flossed?" Me: "BRO, you were THERE! "
@Smittyfromda805, did you just repost a picture as a comment?
I have to get all my wisdom teeth removed on thursday. Im terrified.
@Jaydeeboop, apparently it's not so bad. My dentist told me if I ever have mine removed it's going to require major surgery and I'm "not going to like it". Other than that I have perfect teeth and never had a cavity
@Jaydeeboop, its alright you'll be fine. I dont remember a single thing from the dentists office and barely anything from when i got home. My doctor also gave me heavy meds for the pain it comes with so i also barely felt any pain in the aftermath and it kinda just felt like a small bruise. You'll be okay and just hope your dentist prescribes you good pain meds. You got this!
@MrPalm, I'm actually not going under so I will be awake for the whole thing. I kind of wish i would take anesthesia so i dont have to experience it lol. Thanks for the reassurance. Im sure ill be okay. I cant imagine it to be more painful than a root canal lol
@Jaydeeboop, lol yeah. I believe in you! Howcome you're not taking any anesthesia though?
@Jaydeeboop, I've had mine removed last year. I couldn't remember this, but apparently when I was loopy from waking up from the surgery, I kept saying fvck you and fvck off to the surgeon.
@MrPalm, my teeth grew in perfect except they are pushing the others together. Dentist said hes just gonna wiggle them out lol.
@I am Ice Bear, thats awesome.
@Jaydeeboop, got mine removed the day before thanksgiving , it sucked
@Jaydeeboop, don't let them do it, you'll only have dumb teeth left
@Jaydeeboop, when you wake up pretend you dying and then start laughing hysterically, most fun you can have in a dentist chair apart from a rusty spitoon
@Jaydeeboop, but you get some dank ass drugs
@Jaydeeboop, It's not as bad as everyone says. I had all 4 of mine removed plus one other that was growing wrong. That's 5 teeth in one day. Not nearly as bad as I thought it would be. Plus you get the just eat ice cream and mashed potatoes for a week.
This stitches are annoying though.
@Jaydeeboop, i had all four removed at the same time. It wasn't that bad. They knocked me out for it, then had to drag me to the car after because I was high and couldn't stop laughing. Then they gave me a sweet supply of Vicodin. It's a little sore after but that's about it
@Jaydeeboop, while you're in the chair, no problem. It does hurt after but they give you good pain meds. And soon after that the pain goes and you can't remember when your mouth felt this good last. Wisdom tooth pain is the worst. I had to wait 6 months with wisdom teeth trying to push my molars out of the way. There were suicidal moments near the end. Enjoy!
@Jaydeeboop, I was awake, but they novacaine you up real good, you just feel pressure on your teeth, no pain :)
@Jaydeeboop, it's not that bad. Just stay on top of your pain meds. Once the novacaine wears off it sucks.
Also my name nieces name us Jaydah and we call her Jaydah boo. Your name made me think of her.
@Jaydeeboop, Just make sure you have someone you trust take you home. As in, won't post embarrassing videos of you all over the Internet.
@Xanyok, lol I'm not going under anesthesia so I won't have to deal with that.
@Jaydeeboop, Good. I have no memory of waking up, but apparently I said the nurse was hot and commented on every beautiful piece of architecture as I was wheeled out
@Jaydeeboop, just remember that those aren't your teeth, they are ungrateful little pricks that want to ruin your life. Also you will be numbed senseless so don't worry about pain. Just make it about revenge!
@Jaydeeboop, make sure to follow the aftercare instructions. i did and i was off pain meds the next day. my friend did not and got that air pocket thing and was hurting for weeks.
@Jaydeeboop, its not bad! I was afraid too but afterwards i got home and made me mow the lawn with gauze in my mouth and i was fine.
@stillnotginger, fun fact, novacaine hasn't been used in decades, they use lidocaine because a small percentage (3%) of people are allergic to the metabolites of novacaine meaning they have a severe allergic reaction hours after the novacaine wears off
@ajr12100, (many dentists simply tell patients it's novacaine because everyone recognizes it rather than explaining the difference)
@ajr12100, well whatever it was. The actual procedure didn't hurt
@Jaydeeboop, don't worry about it. The only thing that you should be scared of is telling everyone your darkest secrets while your on laughing gas. Or whatever it's called that puts you to sleep and then in a hysteria afterwards. Correct me if I'm wrong
So when I was 12ish I stopped going to the dentist because my family didn't have insurance. I went when I was 18 and surprisingly cavity free. Some deep staining but nothing major. Three years later I went to the dentist and I had SEVEN cavities. I'm convinced going to the dentist is what gave me cavities.
Did somebody say gum job?
Eat something sugary or cold. Any pain? No? Then you're good
@Taquito Speedo, "But your gums look puffy, you need to floss!"
@Sexy Homunculus, naaaaah just drink some 7-up and burp it out. That's the only cure
@Sexy Homunculus, that's why I always disinfect my mouth with alcohol...although I don't think my liver agrees with my dental care
Just went to the dentist for the first time in 7 years and they had to scrape tar off my gumline for 30 minutes after all that pain I tell you people just go to the dentist
Ha! 14 years and counting
I am 25 years old and have never been to the dentist. My teeth and gums are pretty bad. I have more reason than you to be afraid.
Hey, I went to the dentist after 10 years not seeing him. I had some bad plaque buildup, but not a single cavity. Just go, old you will be greatful when you still have teeth.
