I just dont understand the whole point of us even having wisdom teeth anyways. Lucky me (not!), when I had braces, they pulled all my teeth back so the wisdom teeth had no room to come out, so they where just pushing agaisnt the other back tooth, so they had to cut into my gums to remove them, but they didnt give me the option of being put to sleep, actually I had to pay $50 out of pocket just for laughing gas, cause medicaid doesnt like to pay for things like that, which isnt fair, it was traumatizing to me. My daughter gets put under whenever she has any teeth work done cause she's scared to death of the dentist, last time they tried to do it without it she threw up on the dentist's assistant. She gets laughing gas for normal teeth cleaning, but other then that, she gets put under, which makes me terribly sick, I always get dizzy and feel like I'm going to pass out, having yourself and your kids put under is two completly diffrent things, like having your child's life under the care of a stranger, it doesnt sit well with me. But last time she was put under, she came home and told me "look at all those pretty stars" and she kept screaming that a big black monkey was about
to jump off the ceiling on to my head, it was pretty funny. And the first thing she did when she came out of the ansthesia was asked for dingdongs, but she doesnt remember asking for them, so she was wondering why when she woke up (or when the meds wore off and knew what she was doing)at home later that evening why there was a huge box of dingdongs on the table by her. Also they told me that when children wake up from ansthsia that it was normal for them to cry, but my daughter didnt want to wake up, she would look at us and close her eyes, she was at peace.

Make sure He doesn't get "dry sockets". That is were the blood clot falls off too soon and the nerves are exposed. I had this happen on two of mine. Horrible pain and they have to pack the socket with treated gauze every couple days to get it to heal correctly. They told me to call them if the pain got worse, but it didn't get worse it just didn't get any better. So at the 1 week check up they asked why I didn't call them to let them know it was this bad. Like I said, it was any worse it just didn't get any better. So please watch him close and make sure the pain does get better and not linger as mine did.
