When I was 15, I had my lower wisdom teeth out. I was anesthetized because they were impacted, and I swelled like a balloon for about 5 days. My uppers, on the other hand, were untouched because they were coming in straight and presented no problems.
Well, until now.
Honestly, when my dentist gave me the option of either filling the small cavity in my right third molar or extracting both of the suckers, I thought it was prudent to remove them. Now, as I sit with my fifth day of mouth pain, I feel quite unwise.
Tuesday, I return to the dentist for a checkup, and I swear if I’m not 100% better, I’m demanding Vicodin.
