    I had 4 removed on 4 consecutive Fridays a few years back and that was bad enough. i'd really look at not doing all 4 at once...

    No sucking on a straw for sure, I would just get one side at a time done that way you can eat and drink later.

    I had 3 done at the same time, 2 were cooming in straight 1 was going in sideways. It wasn't as bad as most people turn it out to be in my case. A week later and I was good to go. They gave me some pills and It turned into nappy time real fast. If you have any questions I could give a shot and answer them.

    Interesting you brought this up. I have one wisdom tooth thats been bothering me for about a month or so and have learned to live with it by chewing my food on the opposite side of my mouth.
    I'm not real eager to get it pulled, nor any of the other 3.

    I had all 4 of my wisdom teeth pulled at once. I would recommend doing it that way. Go through the ordeal only once. It my case, I had two growing in normaly and the other two were growing forward basically crowding all of the teeth in my jaw.

    I don't remember seeing needles, but I was given general anesthesia. Just have them knock you out first and then poke you all over with the needle.:doah: :D

    For a bit of comedy relief, have your mom/wife/significant other buy you a malt/ice cream shortly after you leave the surgeon. Have the video camera rolling as you try to eat it.:haha: You will laugh when you watch the footage.....:haha: :haha: :haha:

    I had all 4 of mine done at once. It wasn't that bad. They put me out and I woke up one during it. I remember the guy sying, "Oh it's Ok, we're almost done." and I went back out. I guess he squeezed the bag a little bit. Lol I got some pills and laid in bed a couple of days. They put the IV in me while I was awake. Tell the guy/chick that you don't like needles, maybe they will give you some gas first, then stick ya.

    I had all four removed while i was stationed in spain. Top two were coming in normal, bottom two were pushing straight forward. The choices were 1. Do two now and two next week, but only get local shots. Or 2. Do all four at once and we will knock you out. Choice was easy for me!:rolleyes: I remember getting the needle in the hand for the knock out stuff. I woke up during the procedure while they were drilling and cracking the bottom right tooth:eek1: . Felt the work but no pain thank god! Went back out, next thing I knew i was laying in my bed at home. Buddy drove me home and suposedly we stopped off at a house he had just moved into and hung out for like an hour. He said he knew it was time to take me home when I was drooling blood!:doah:
