shit when i had to get braces, i had to have 4 teeth pulled out. 2 at each appointment. the aesthetic needle hurt but the worst part is taking it out. the dentist uses a wrench and twists your tooth until it comes out. you can feel the roots twist and rip when they do it. i don't even think she put enough aesthetic.

Yup, had to go through the exact same thing. Had to get two teeth yanked in one appointment, then another two yanked in the next one. I was also awake for the whole thing, it was intense. Hearing all the cracking sounds was crazy too. I had nightmares about my teeth after that experience; I still do sometimes and that was about 13 years ago.

The wisdom teeth was a lot more pleasant, especially since they knocked me out. Oh, and the painkillers were fun!

Hmmm I never noticed it until now but I guess that means i've had a total of 8 teeth pulled out of me.

i've never had a cavity or a filling, so i don't really have any mental baggage going into the dentist. no horror stories besides the pulling of my wisdom teeth, and that sucked dick for a few days. the smell of the polish does make me gag every time. i tell the hygentist not to do it unless she feels like being thrown up on.

I remember I made a thread similar to this one when I got mine pulled out last year during March. The only thing I hated was having the taste of blood in my mouth for the first day. After the first day I was as good as normal. The surgery itself wasn't too bad. I could feel the pressure on my head when my dentist was trying to yank my teeth out. I got my top wisdom teeth yanked in the first week and the bottom in the other week. Surgery all happened well I was awake.

I wish I had kept my wisdom teeth. I had perfectly straight teeth before I got 'em out when I was 18. Since then, my teeth have pushed forward, which doesn't make any sense to me... but it's because I took them out, apparently.

I also hate how the assistant constantly squirts water in your mouth. I have a sensitive gag reflex and it's hard when they stuff all this stuff in your mouth

I do lol. Actually, I just began flossing about 6 months ago after my dentist gave me a long lecture about not doing so. Before I started flossing daily I had puffy gums and they were quite dark. After about 3 months of flossing led me to healthy pink gums. I was also brushing improperly as well. Massaging the gums when brushing is key.

And always use a soft bristle brush - never medium or hard.

Yeah, I learned the proper way of brushing a few years ago.

I still don't know how you could stand flossing per day though. Maybe I'm doing it wrong, but it takes too long and it's hard to get the back teeth.

getting my wisdom teeth removed was probably the worst experience of my life. i had to have them surgically removed since they were pushing up against my teeth. when i returned home from the dentist, i wasn't able to take pain killers because everything that i put in my mouth immediately fell right out. i was a chipmunk for three weeks and it took me over two weeks before i was able to eat a piece of cake. it was a nightmare.

I had my wisdom teeth removed at the same time as I had my lower jaw broken in three places so it could be pushed back and widened. It took a little more than three weeks before I could eat cake. I did have some that was put through a blender. I did get some liquid codeine. Tasted like ass, but worked nicely.

Anything to do with teeth or gums and I've got anyone here beat, unless you tried syphoning gas in the high arctic and had all your teeth immediately freeze and shatter. I've heard of that happening. I can't beat that. But my clay molds, before and after all my orthodontistry and surgery were displayed all over Calgary. I had everything wrong imaginable. I ended up with a pretty high tolerance for pain.

I was supposed to have that surgery too. I was 14, chickened out and called it off. I think this was a couple days before the surgery and a couple weeks after I'd had my wisdom teeth out (in preparation). I was also supposed to have my top jaw sawed out, sanded down and put back into place. Fuck that jazz. The surgeon told me I'd have a lifetime of neck problems and headaches if I didn't go through with it and he was right. But it's been 20 years and I still don't regret it as the mere thought still makes me recoil. I also kinda grew into my jaw a bit and a dentist I saw when I was in my early 20's said the upper surgery would have been pointless.

I must be one of the few ppl who enjoys going to the dentist lol...it's always been routine cleanings once a year. Except for one time when the doc pulled out an extra tooth at the top just to be precautionary...weird as fck when half your face is numb and you have to keep spitting out blood but that's about it. Cavity and filling free
