dental surgery  
next tuesday. :(

i have all four of my wisdom teeth. i want to keep them all. i want to have 32 teeth. but... i cannot. :( mr dentist has dictated that they must all be evicted from my mouth, because there is simply not enough real estate for them all to reside in comfortably.

also because the bottom ones are growing out sideways into my cheeks. o.o

therefore, i will need to do two surgeries (bottom ones) and two extractions (top ones), one of each at the same time. actually i'm not keen to do both top and bottom on the same day (top and bottom toothies on the right side will be making their getaway hand in hand on tuesday) but that would make more sense rather than have four separate procedures. sigh.

so i will be a right-sided chipmunk for a week. upon recovery, i will proceed to become a left-sided chipmunk for another week. urgh.

i've been told i will have to be on a liquid diet for at least 3 days!

I got all 4 done at once under only local anesthetic. recovery sooo much faster! I had banana smoothies and joghurt for a few days, but was back at work the 3rd day after my op with no swelling :)

andge, you're amazing! was it extraction or surgery?

extraction, but 2 of them were compacted (sidewards)

my bravest proudest moment! haha!

my bottom ones are sideways too! dentist has to cut them out because there's nothing to grip onto. :s
