I've been lurking here for a while and have read lots of success stories. I'm a 20-year-old female. I was having a lot of tooth pain in early September. At first, I thought it was some kind of gum boil. I went in to get an x-ray from a dentist. It turns out, I have FIVE WISDOM TEETH!!! I have to get them all removed soon and the procedure has been constantly on my mind. My original four teeth have erupted through my gums without causing me any pain. However, the fifth tooth, (which is behind my upper right wisdom tooth,) has been causing me significant earaches and headaches. My mom wants me to fly home to get this done, and while her intentions are good, this only amps up my anxiety. I am a little nervous about IV sedation, but would not want to be awake for this. I've never had surgery of any kind in my life. I'm very scared about the recovery phase. I do not want to be in too much pain. Any advice? Will I be okay? Has anyone else had more than four wisdom teeth removed at once? I could really use some reassurance right now!
