I waited until my late 20s to get my wisdom teeth out. So I finally decided to rip the band-aid and get them all taken out once. 4 dry sockets and 2 weeks later, my nerves were still exposed and I was in severe amounts of pain. My orthodontist had to go back in and perform the same exact surgery, open my gums back up, and this time while I was still awake. After a month of eating nothing but fluids, the pain finally went away. I immediately gained back the 13 lbs that I lost because food is good and I definitely missed it. My orthodontist said that what happened to me only happens to 2% of people… Greaaaat. What’s a living nightmare that actually happened to you?
