Re: Wisdom Teeth pulled
I had all of mine - 2 top ones normal extractions, bottom two surgical extractions - removed by a military dentist. Despite his rank of major, I can vouch for the fact that full-time army medical personnel are those who cannot succeed in private practice.
These were done on separate days, all under local. That makes for interesting listening when you hear the dreaded word 'Oops', followed by 'That'll need additional stitching'.
Luckily the slip in question didn't quite exit via the cheek.
Hurt like buggery for 2 weeks, but the worst thing was the smell. Keep the disinfectant mouthwash handy.
