Just wanted to give a small update. I have an appointment tomorrow afternoon (3:30p) for a consultation with the dentist and for an x-ray. I've been praying and have peace knowing that my God will take care of me :)
Even though my way was not highly recommended, it turned out well. My lower wisdom teeth were imbedded in the jaw bone and were causing my jaw to lock (I could only open my mouth about a 1/4-1/2 in at the worst). So I had all 4 out on the same day - totally concious the whole time. I had some swelling, but was able to control the pain with OTC pain relievers. I even had orientation for work the day after. Best recommendation, soft foods for at least a week - soups, yogurt, baby foods, etc. Overall, I felt much better afterwards and would do it again in a heartbeat.
No matter how far the distance, you still get there one step at a time.
Krystie, I had all four of my wisdom teeth taken out on the same day. The only real problem I had that day was trying not to swallow the stuff they packed in my empty sockets. I did get on dry socket, but a quick shot stopped that pain right away. My husband had a wee bit more pain and bleeding, but by the next day we were both doing pretty good. I honestly think that with as much pain as you are having now, getting it out will be a relief. I will pray for you my friend! Kim
God bless, Kim
There is nothing more important in your life than your relationship with Christ.

Hey girls, I am looking for some support and prayers here. I have gotten my 2nd wisdom tooth coming in. It started to come in a few days ago, and I just don't think there is going to be enough room for it. It's painful (words cant describe it!!) and everytime I try and eat, it's like food gets stuck in it and HURTS, even when I chew on the other side of my mouth.
I haven't been to the dentist since probley almost 10 years ago now. I decided today that I had enough and that a dentist appointment would have to be made. My dad, (parents divorced and him and i have a very sticky relationship) told me where he went, that he liked, and he even offered to go with me :) I guess they will obviously probley have to go in and take it out.
Does anyone have any experience with this? I know everyone is different which makes it kind of hard. I did a very un smart thing and watched videos of it on youtube. Not going to lie, I almost cried lol How long were you "out of commission" how long before you could work and how long before you could drive? Just curious. Now I am sure that they won't do everything the same day since I havent seen a dentist in so long, but I am just very curious.
Please pray for me. I need all the prayers I can get!! I am very scared and I am usually a very brave girl :)
