The concept of having to have your wisdom teeth removed is not clear to me. Do you always have to have them removed? I just started to have my bottom wisdom teeth come out but they seem fine to me. They do not hurt me and as far as I can tell are coming out straight.
So why remove them just because? My dentist said they can start to cause problems but if they are not causing problems now why take them out. As you can see I do not what to have any extractions. One because of the cost and two if it is not necessary I do not see the point.
I had all four of my wisdom teeth pulled out at once. It has been only two days ago so I am still in some pain and I even bleed once in a while if I am not careful about what I am eating. I would like to know how long will it take for the gums to heal?
I am having to eat really soft food because I do not want any food to get caught in the holes that are left. I would like some idea of how much longer I have to put up with this. Thanks
I just had my Wisdom teeth pulled yesterday and I am still bleeding a little. I hate the taste of blood and it is making me ill. Is there any way to stop the bleeding all together?

My dad and a back molar tooth pulled. Really he what was left of the tooth pulled out since there was no way of saving the tooth. He can not get a bridge until he heals completely. His problem is that he says he is still bleeding hour after having the tooth stub pulled.
Is this normal or should he see the dentist? He is not bleeding alot just on and off. Any advise on how to stop the bleeding he said it is starting to make him sick.
I have one tooth in the back where it had some decay on it and I brok a part of it a few days back. I do not have dental insurance but I did go to a dentist and was told that i should pull it and get a bridge or implant. Both would cost me more money then what I have. I was hoping just to save the tooth.
If I have no choice and I have to pull the tooth how bad would it be to just leave it at that. I can afford to pull the tooth since that is only $89. Should I get a second dental opinion to see if the tooth can be saved? Opinons please
One of my back top wisdom teeth is broken I know it needs to be pulled. It has be given me problems but I just to scared to really have it pulled out. I never had to have one of my teeth pulled but the dentist wants to not only pull the one wisdom tooth but the other top wisdom tooth as well.
I never got the bottom wisdom teeth so I am lucky there. My dentist said to me that I need to have at least the one tooth pulled ASAP, or it will only continue to hurt and it may abscess on me. I do not want that to happen. However I never had major dental work done and I am scared it is going to hurt.

So I just had two of my wisdom teeth removed. I was really surprised how well things went. I was really scared at first not knowing if I would feel anything. The dentist put me to sleep and it was over before I even knew it. The pain is not really all that bad at first but I think that was because I was still a little out of it.
Now the next day I do feel really bad. My mouth hurts and my cheeks are swollen. I can only eat really soft stuff like pudding. So my question is this how long should I be in pain? How long will I have swollen cheeks? I never had any teeth pulled before so I think it would help knowing some kind of time frame.
My husband needs to have all the remaining teeth he has pulled out so that he can get a complete set of dentures uppers and lowers. This teeth have always been in bad shape since he was a child do to his diabetes. He has dental insurance though work but it is not the greatest. Our out of pocket cost is still around $3700.00.
The problem is we just do not have that kind of money to spend right now. I however, do not want him to continue to suffer with his bad teeth. I am really upset over this since the dentist will not even workout any type of payment plan. We could afford about $100.00 a month until it is paid off. Does anyone have any idea on what we can do. I want my husband to smile again. He is just a giving man and he does so much for our family always putting himself last.
My son had an adult teeth coming out behind the baby tooth. So I took him to see the dentist as to way the baby tooth as not yet come out. In fact it is not even loose because I tried to pull on it a little to see. His dentist stated that this happen sometimes that the adult tooth will given time push the baby tooth out but he advises pulling it. He said that by pulling it it will help with the adult teeth coming out.
However after that he advises use to pull three other baby teeth that have yet to come out since he said there is a likely hood that those teeth will do the same. I guess I am fine will pulling the one tooth but should I really have the other three pulled now or can I wait. I mean they may just fall out on their own.
