- Wisdom teeth
How old were you when yours came through?
I’ve got one coming in now and I’m 61 in a few months!!Posted 10 months ago
Had mine out in my early 20’s. My dentist at the time had looked at the X-rays and advised me that though they were stable and not moving, in my 60’s they might decide to make a painful appearance so advised me to get it done which I’m glad I did as it was very uncomfortable and not something I’d want to have done in my 60’sPosted 10 months ago
Had mine out at 21. It was pretty brutal. It I was asleep under a general. I’d already had four teeth out to make space for them but no joy. Not a big mouth.Posted 10 months ago
Around 20ish give or take, still got them.Posted 10 months ago
All 4 of mine removed, plus two impacted molars. Work up with cucumber and salmon sarnies. Gotta love BUPA! Just watch the pain meds they give you. I got 200mg tramadol and they were… a little spacey!Posted 10 months ago
Some wisdom at last Scotroutes? 😉Posted 10 months ago
I don’t have any.
Does that make me less wise or more evolved?Posted 10 months ago
40’s. had surgery at LGI to have em removed.Posted 10 months ago
I’m 44 and not yet wise.
Dentist keeps tell me there is no point filling the gaps from missing teeth as they’ll close up when my wisdom teeth come through. They’ve been saying that for about 15 years.Posted 10 months ago
Bugger the teeth, I’m waiting for the wisdom…Posted 10 months ago
Still got bottom two. Roots were wrapped around facial nerve so they didn’t want to remove. Bottom right one has snow on the top its that big. Had to have teeth around then my removed as they were pushing them which caused lots of pain.Posted 10 months ago
I had mine removed at about 24 IIRC – never had an issue with them then suddenly I got the most excruciating pain – so much so I was punching walls to focus pain away from them. I had all four removed at hospital (under a general anaesthetic) the following week. I recall watching Jacob’s Ladder the day after getting home – not the best film to watch when recovering from surgery and still taking industrial-strength painkillers.Posted 10 months ago
hm, some came through when in my 30s and possibly early 40s.Posted 10 months ago
Local dentist in Edinburgh took them out, one was easy, the other less so. I think I still have a couple remaining. Don’t fancy them coming out TBH.
