When did you extract your wisdom tooth or teeth?
I was 14 years old.....it was horrible!! Took them all out at one time.
Last year, at the age of 26. My dentist told me they were starting to get crowded and it needed to be done when I was 16, but I didn't have the money for it. Last year, a couple teeth finally buckled :S. They took three teeth, including the bottom wisdom teeth and a buckled molar, and I ended up getting dry socket in all three. The uppers are still there, but thankfully my dentist and the oral surgeon both agree that they're not bothering anything. It's been 15 months, and the holes still haven't entirely filled in. The younger, the better -- if there's any chance you'll need them out, get those suckers out of there while you still heal fast
I was in my early 20s and had all four teeth removed in the same day. I remember waking up from the anesthesia and I was more stoned than I'd ever been in my life. I felt great...till a few hours later when it all wore off. ("AAAAARRRRRRGH!")
I still have mine and they've never come through the gums. I've been to different dentists and they tell me different things. In the Navy, they kept insisting I should have them pulled. My current dentist told me he'll only pull them if they start causing other problems.

I've got a wobbly wisdom tooth, will it come out on it's own?It's actually been wobbly for about a year now! I fear dentists, and to be honest my teeth are a bit of a state. I'm 47 years old, is it possible to have something done that makes them look more presentable?

What are some good foods to eat after you've had a wisdom tooth (or teeth!) removed?So I recently had a wisdom tooth out, and eating was a literal pain. I'm thankfully back to normal now, but it was quite terrible to be restricted to Jell-O and pudding if I didn't want to spend an hour regretting...
