I had my wisdom teeth pulled out when I was in high school… All 4 of them.
I hope you can tell how ridiculously swollen my whole face is, but if not… take my word for it.
Anyways, it’s a funny thing when you go to the dentist years later and they say “hey, you have a 5th wisdom tooth… No worries it’s small and it’ll probably never come in.”
Fast forward a year or so and guess who’s making an appearance. Sir 5th Wisdom Tooth. AND it’s sitting on a nerve or something and my top jaw feels all zingy like I’ve been overdosing on Crest White strips.
So, I have a referral to the oral surgeon. I haven’t decided if I’m going to go or not though. I may be able to push out a baby with no medicine, but I am the worlds. biggest. baby. about the dentist. And the only thing worse than the dentist… the oral surgeon.
Looking like some kind of food-storing rodent is also fairly high on the list…
