Wisdom Tooth

Had an extraction a couple weeks ago. Took them longer to numb me up than do the actual work. It took a lot of injections but it worked. It was a bottom wisdom tooth and it was not a bit painful. He sort of wedged it out and I didn't feel anything but the pressure he had to use. He took the tooth out and stitched me up in about 5 minutes total. I went home with some Tylenol and anti biotics and I was 100% fine. No pain afterwards, no dry socket (I used the tea bag 'treatment') and I could eat solid food after a few days. I was a little extra careful, my diet was yogurt, beans, guacamole and water, but I had no troubles aside from the anxiety beforehand.
