I had all four removed.

A dentist tried to remove one and he struggled for a long time to get it out.  Then he said that the other three had to be removed by a surgeon.  So I went to the surgeon.  His plan was to cut the gum on top, then use a hammer and chisel to split each tooth in half, and pull them out one half at a time.  I was given general anesthesia but the first time he struck the hammer onto the chisel to split the tooth, I opened my eyes and began to sit up.  So the nurse added more anesthesia and he continued.

Matt605,

I guess you’re probably luckier than a friend of mine.

Midway through the extraction and seeing the bloodied gloves of his dentist, he was asked by the dentist, “Have you said your prayers this morning?”

He practically went “nuts” at that moment.

I still have mine and am contemplating removing them.

My dentist told me the difference between the extraction done by him (a general practitioner) and by a specialist is in the duration (hmmm ... he didn’t mention skill but I guess that must have been factored into the duration).



So, I am considering …. if it might be better to go to a specialist and get it done and over quickly?

Is what my dentist told me necessary true and accurate?

As for me, I never pulled a single tootch off except one decayed tooth(caused by eating too much sugar) when I was about ten...... OUCH..
