|For the Love of God do not get them pulled if they dont hurt I just had mine pulled 7/5/07 because my bottom teeth were hurting me but ididnt need my top ones done, only now realizing that after Ive gone through all this pain, and I still cant eat 2 days later, and Im still bleeding!! The Dr. didnt even tell me I could save my top ones if they didnt hurt, so just like most Dentist I think he wanted to cash in more from my insurance Co. When you go home and the novacaine wares off you will be in the most pain you've ever been in, it is hell!! I dont know when I will be able to eat!!|
Yes, it can be painful to have your wisdom teeth removed - however, it is sometimes neccesary.
Did you have a little bit of gumming over the top of your bottom tooth? That can trap bacteria, causing it to swell. The reason your bottom gums hurt was because your top wisdom teeth were irritating it when you close your mouth.
But then again, you obviously havn't been in a whole lot of pain in your life if you think wisdom teeth are the worst. Don't worry, it's not as bad as he makes it out to be. The alternative is worse.
