Hello Alla! The pain and complexity of the operation to remove the "eights" are very individual. More precisely, there should be no pain during the operation with properly performed anesthesia, but as for the complexity, it depends on individual characteristics. In some cases, these teeth can be located inside the jaw completely horizontally in relation to the rest of the teeth, as a result of which their eruption is difficult. The horizontal position of the tooth also promotes pressure on the adjacent tooth, which can lead to various complications. Removal of the not erupted "figure eight" is a much more laborious procedure than simple removal, sometimes even requiring the patient to be hospitalized. Before removal, the doctor will definitely take a picture, ideally a three-dimensional one, thanks to which he will understand the level of complexity and the sequence of the necessary manipulations. In any case, with a competent specialist, everything will go smoothly. Good health to you!

Today, from 17 to 18, the top left eight was uprooted. The tooth was neglected, besides, on the 21st, the cheek was blown apart, I immediately went to the dentist, but the anesthesia did not work in the right amount, I had to postpone the procedure, drink antibiotics and do baths. On the 22nd, in the evening, the gums began to swell, nimesil (pain reliever) did not help, well, it helped the tooth, probably, but not the gums. I made a soda-salt compress for 10 minutes and lo and behold, something bloody came off the tampon and it got better (the flux opened). I wanted to go to the dentist on Thursday, but the appointment was only for today and Monday. Having set myself that it will not get better, and until Monday it is not yet known what will be gone. Anesthesia got better, but the gum is inflamed, in the place of inflammation anesthesia works worse. They pinned me up 3 times. It hurt in places. The removal process was protracted. After removal, the place of removal was screaming, and I was shaking on my nerves, but relief from removing the source of trouble was already felt. The suture was not applied, at first they wanted absorbable, then changed their minds. They gave a recommendation, although I already know everything, not for the first time. They were allowed to bang nimesil right away, put a tampon, gave ice and I went home, upon arrival home the pain gradually subsided, a little saliva mixed with blood comes out, but I think this is normal, I removed the tampon an hour later, immediately after removing the tampon there was no blood. You feel relief, you have an appetite, it's a pity you can't eat normally for several days. The doctor encouraged the whole procedure, soothed, if required added anesthesia. I hope everything will be fine, sorry, I didn’t take a tooth for memory. Since childhood, I am terribly afraid of dentists, therefore, as a rule, I endure to the last. Therefore, the consequences are as follows. The procedure was carried out in FMBA dentistry, all the pleasure is 3800. Previously, she removed 2 more teeth there, treated, put crowns. The doctors are attentive, the atmosphere is calm. Prices, in my opinion, are moderate, they will not recommend too much. I recommend to everyone who is "shaken" by the word dentist, and sitting in a chair begins to tremble even before the examination. My top eight came out very painfully, the previous ones were easier, but I’m still a coward, I’m already shaking 3 hours before the visit, I can hardly endure injections of anesthesia, for some reason surgeons do not use anesthetic gel before the injection. So if it is advised to remove something, rip it out, if possible immediately, then it will be quick and not painful. And if you delay, get ready for at least an hour of torture, even under anesthesia. If the tooth is in the process of aggravation, if the flux has matured, adjust yourself that there is a slight soreness and additional anesthesia may be required. If it hurts a little, more from manipulation is normal, you should be patient. If, during manipulation, the pain increases, as if poking with a toothpick into the pulpitis, signal the doctor to inject the anesthetic. The anesthetic does not take inflamed tissue well from the word at all. If nothing at all (they have already made several injections, but do not touch the tooth), it is better to postpone the procedure for a couple of days, open the flux, ifit is required to carry out baths, start taking an antibiotic on the recommendation of a doctor. With this approach, it will be easier to remove in a day.

Yes, a couple of years ago I went to remove it, I was in great pain, the tooth was crumbling, the doctor swore, I howled, we suffered for about half an hour, the doctor tried different instruments, but nothing worked, I was covered in blood, he shoved me a piece of gauze in my mouth and said that I had to go to maxillofacial surgery. I cried and left. This doctor is considered the best and most experienced in our city, so it's not about him. The fragments of the tooth have not yet been pulled out, I also do not treat other teeth, I have started. I'm afraid. VERY AFRAID.

The sensations are pleasant, because. everything was frozen, there was no pain and the state of health was excellent ... A little bit ached and that's it ... The main thing is the mood !!!

Yesterday my upper wisdom tooth was removed. After reading the reviews on the Internet for the day of the removal, naturally I could not sleep and wore myself up)

As a result, I was removed in an ordinary free clinic (I think you do not need to overpay in expensive clinics for removal if you have a tooth without complications ) came, made an injection and after 5 minutes they loosened and pulled out a tooth with forceps) For everything - 10 minutes. I want to say - I did not experience any pain at all, even now, after a day. AND

Yes, they did, but only the top ones. It took all 3 minutes, quickly and painlessly. After that nothing hurt. The operation went very quickly: they injected an injection, swung the tooth in the hole and took it out. As a doctor shakes a tooth - you can feel it, but there is no pain. However, I had the upper 8s, but my friends removed the lower ones - after the operation I had to suffer, because after difficult removal, there are pains. But this is all individual. In any case, if a tooth is to be removed, it must be removed.

Answer 7

I had 4 wisdom teeth removed at once, undergoing sedative anesthesia. The main thing is to find a doctor you trust and stock up on rubbed food for the first days) The swelling was strong during the first days (2 lower teeth were impacted), the teeth could not be properly cleaned - that's all) I'm very glad that I removed everything at once - I had to suffer only once; )

A week ago, my upper and lower wisdom teeth were removed. This is what the European protocol recommends. The operation itself lasted about forty minutes, the upper tooth was under the gum and did not want to get out. Honestly, the doctor thought my jaw would tear off. But the horror began later, when the anesthesia ended. This is hell. I am not a sissy, I have gone through several serious operations in my life, so this is objective. In general, I believe that the doctor must warn about such things. I would have told you to take a pill in advance. In general, I did not have time to get to the house, I was twisted so that I just howled. While the pain relievers had some effect, I had to endure several unforgettable hours. But! This is individual for everyone, just know that this is possible. In short, I sit on painkillers for a week and see no end. Tomorrow I'm going to remove the stitches. The stitches were not self-absorbable, but just like a fishing line. They both inject in the mouth and interfere. I don’t know what kind of order they have here, but fact is fact. All in all, summary: removing eights sucks. But this needs to be done, not for everyone, but the sooner the better. By the way, 30% of the lucky ones don't have them at all. But if you are not one of them, then welcome to the dentist. By the way, I forgot to say that this was happening in the capital of Austria, the glorious city of Vienna, in one of the best dental clinics in the city.

a comfortable procedure that takes about 20 minutes on average. During the removal process you feel absolutely no pain.

And this friend knows how to joke. Maybe in private clinics they inject with strong anesthesia, but in public clinics they will give them a couple of injections and be patient.

At the age of 19, they were removed. They poked around for a long time, there were terrible sounds of cracking, there were sensations that huge pieces of iron are being inserted between your teeth, terrible sensations. It was scary.

But that's half the problem. The whole joke begins later, when you run for several hours to spit into the bath - the blood flows like a river and does not stop itself. The cold doesn't help either. Or it helps, I don't remember, but when a normal tooth was removed, the cold did not help. When the anesthesia wears off, other jokes begin - a feeling of pain, other sensations from the intervention. Here a good pain relief saves - I drank and no problems for the next 8-12 hours.

So you need to worry not about the process - they will give you anesthesia, then it depends on the pain threshold, but about the consequences.

Answer 10

The lower right was removed due to the fact that all the teeth on the lower jaw were shifted to the right. Because of this, the wisdom tooth began to grow in the cheek, causing simply hellish torment.

Like many, I was very afraid to go to the dentist, but when 4 (!) Ketanov's pills stopped helping at a time, I had to go to the doctor. The procedure, together with freezing, lasted about 10 minutes. I did not have time to be afraid of the removal process itself, because the doctor did not use the usual forceps (or what is the correct name for this instrument?), But some kind of metal pointed "stick". In addition, he chatted without stopping about some nonsense, for which I sincerely thank him so much.

After the procedure, 90% of the pain did not return, until the evening the wound itself was a little worried, but after two days I talked about it tooth and did not remember. The most offensive thing is that such a simple solution to the problem was preceded by 2 weeks of ADA. And it was also a pity for an absolutely whole, healthy tooth.

Don't be afraid to remove your teeth! It is much more painless than treating them! Medicine does not stand still, and in any clinic, this procedure will be done in exactly 1 minute. Well, or a little longer if the case is difficult. In any case, the process itself is not painful at all. A couple of days later, however, the removal site will ache. But this is nonsense compared to a toothache from caries, or pulpitis.

Answer 12

In fact, the process of removing almost any wisdom tooth is a fairly comfortable procedure, which takes on average 20 minutes. During the removal process, you do not feel absolutely any pain, only a feeling of touch and pressure. The most unpleasant thing is the sounds, alas, there is no escape from them. It can crackle, crackle, but nothing more. If everything is done correctly, then moderate pain sensations can accompany you after removal - within 1-2 days. Further, as a rule, only the cheek is worried due to edema. When removing the impacted (what is under the gum) tooth, the edema may increase within 3 days, and starting from the 4th it gradually decreases. This area, like a bruise on an arm or leg, only bothers when pressure is applied to it. I have an article on how the deletion itself goes, if you are interested.

Answer 13

All four were removed, the operation itself does not hurt at all - the freezing is now good; but for a very long time. I have one of (and delete them one or two) lasted three and a half hours.

But! This is because they cut the tooth from under the skin. If you have it outside, then it should be easier and faster to remove.

It starts to hurt about an hour or two after the operation, when the freeze goes away. It hurts like hell, ice helps a little, which must be applied immediately after and then every n hours (it is immediately issued there).

And it hurts for about a week. It is impossible to sleep. It is impossible to chew - so only liquid food or puree. And also the mouth opens up to a certain rather small limit. I remember that I could not put a cherry in there, I had to split it in two to just put it in my mouth.

Your cheeks will also be swollen for a while and they will be decorated with huge bruises.
