As I mentioned before, I lost some of my wisdom in my fist surgery ever. My dentist had been trying to get me to remove all four of my wisdom teeth and I have been putting it off as I was not into throwing my money at some monster who wants to inflict pain on me. That being the case I stuck his referral to the dental surgeon on my fridge and it sat their for years getting tattered.
Now I am not sure how much of a coincidence this is but my last regular blog post was on August 27, 2010 at 3am and because I keep such good records at 11am that same day I did the surgery. Apparently I did it at the end of my vacation, silly me I should have filed for some sick days to do this. Anyway I'm sure I could go into a lot of detail of the procedure like the surgeon sticking my jaw bone with anesthetic(the needle was actually stuck in the bone) or one of my teeth shattering as he pried it out with his mid evil pliers from under the gum but I wont. I will leave you with my attempts of recording the end result of what was left after the extraction.
The procedure was the easy part, it was the recovery period that was torture. Now due to this doctors careless stitching I was unable to bite down and close my jaws completely so there goes any hope of eating solid foods. My face was swollen, I couldn't talk and I was in serious pain. That week my meals consisted of things I could swallow with ease: ice cream, mashed potato, soup and bullybeef. It wasn't until a full seven days later when they removed the thread from the stitches that I could properly bite down and actually eat again.
I snatched this xray exposure from my dentist the following year, it shows where the wisdom tooth should have been, the bottom right corner, and it also shows that the top wisdom tooth(also marked for removal) growing without restriction into that gap. Luckily for me since the top teeth have erupted and are going straight my regular dentist can remove them without any need for blood and gore. Also note all of my fillings :( yes I guess I had poor dental hygiene when I was little, where were my parents, I got all of those fillings when I was in prep school.
Anyway later for now, cya probably next week if I keep this up.
