The last time my bunk mate extracted 4 teeth at one go (before ORD too), the stupid army dentist pumped him with so much anesthetic the lower part of his face was numb for more than 1/2 a day...and as he had no control over his facial muscles and mouth, he was drooling like an idiot lol!

But back to the topic, if you're feeling ok and no signs of bleeding, why not. Good weather and time for golf is rare in sg unless you're one of those lucky few tokways who can golf as and when they feel like it

Reading this, I can't help but remember my experience too. I laugh now thinking about it, I didn't laugh then.

Like you xt, I wanted to do 4 as well before ORD, why not, free right?

What a bloody roller coaster ride, literally.

I've always hated seeing the dentist, and my ordeal started with anxious tension when I saw the size of the syringe and needle that would go into my mouth. Three jabs later, I was asked if I felt anything when my cheek was pinched, I thought I did, so he jabbed me three more times. "Feel anything still?" he asked, pinching my cheek again. I hated the needle, but was more afraid of feeling any pain during the procedure. So I told him no, and I ended up being jabbed a total of nine times. The last time he stuck the needle in, I thought I was going to faint.

When he finally began, it was like major road construction work going on in my mouth. My tooth was impacted, so he couldn't pull it out, this he told me after wrenching my head from side to side. So out comes the saw (or was I just halucinating at this time), he cut my gums, and then the plan was to cut up my impacted tooth and take it out in pieces.

Drill, drill, drill.... there's a quick movement in my mouth and the drill's pitch goes up a few notches, followed by a "oops" from the dentist. Imagine that, a dentist saying "oops" with the drill in your mouth!

I mumbled with a wide open mouth stuffed with gauze "wa habbeng", and I still remember the 'dentist's' exact words "well, one of two things could have happened. I slipped and the drill could have hit the soft part of the bone, in which case, you're fine. Or I could have hit your nerve..." Anxiously I asked "ang?", he replied "oh, then you might lose all feeling in the lower right half of your jaw."

Waa... I was freaking out cos I had visions in my head of me looking like Sylvester Stallone with a lop sided face when he screamed in Rocky "Adrienne!". Dunno if it was the novocaine, but I asked him the funniest question, "does that mean I won't be able to feel anything when I kiss?", his reply, "you've kissed before?" I couldn't believe we were having this conversation, "I think I'm old enough to" I said. The assisting nurse must have thought we were both mad.

Anyway, after further drilling and wrenching with 'greek grok' sounds reverberating through my head, my stubborn tooth came out in four pieces. He patched me up and told me to monitor and see if feeling returned to my jaw. I picked up my bag leaning against the wall about a metre away and there was blood splatter on it. I shook my head and left.

I hit the bed when I got home and just wanted to sleep it all off. When I awoke, the whole pillow was drenched, I had no control over my mouth and couldn't keep my lips closed from the novocaine ovedose. And I kept pinching my lips to see when and if feeling and control would return. Thankfully, it did by next morning, and I can tell you I was relieved.

My plan was to do all 4 wisdom teeth for free, till this day, I've only ever done that single one. Never again!

I also realised from my asking around that wisdom tooth extraction can range from painlessly easy to the chipmunk swollen cheek traumatic experience of mine. A friend told me she had steak a few hours after her extraction, all I could have was liquid and porridge for a few days. ROFL

But more importantly, I had feeling return to my mouth and I could kiss again!!!! Cheers Jump

I had extracted 2 bottom wisdom teeth, had no re-collection of what happened because I was put under GA. Had 7 days MC.

Not much bleeding but swollen cheeks that made me look like chipmunk with walnuts in mouth. Not much pain but no appetite for food anyway.

The next day, went to the range after driving wife to work. Wow, finally can enjoy off-peak prices for once! Had MBGC's chicken wings with beer on the 3rd/4th day.

Played a round at Palm Villa on the weekend, there was no pain but had to tolerate flight-mates' constant taunting of looking like a Peking man! And because I couldn't really take solid food so I opted for 2 x soft boiled eggs for breakfast at Palm Villa, that kind of gave me all sorts of grumbling tummy and flatulence throughout the 18 holes!

Birdman, I also had similar experience during my NS days.

My front tooth was broken into half since young and I went ahead to get it done during my NS days, which was way cheaper if not free. It was quite a major ops as the DO has to remove all the nerves surrounding the root. I had a total of 6 jabs in the duration of 3 hrs and at the end of it, my no. 4 uniform was totally drenched which included the pants too. I was in constant pain during the ops, that was why the 6 jabs was given.

After the ops, the DO was kind enough to drive me home and I was given a week of MC. A few week later, I managed to extract the tooth and had a bridge built. Till today, I am still surprised why I didn't go crazy with the intense pain. Or maybe I am indeed a little crazy and that's how my nick came about. What a Face

xtxtling and ringrain, both of you were lucky to be under GA, nutty88 and me kena torture man. But at least nutty88 had the DO drive him home, I had to take the bus with a lopsided swollen face.

I empathise with your experiences though. Anything to do with the mouth can be quite torturous. But that was long ago, I'm quite amazed how painless and gentle it can be these days. Vastly different from the Little Shop of Horrors dentists of old.

But golf after a surgery like that? I'd rather enjoy my mc. Stretcher

hmm.. i had 2 wisdom teeth plucked out during NS. 1 day attend C, 1 day attend B. 3rd day SOC.

the other 2 wisdom teeth were impacted and the roots were already more than 90 deg sideways.. had to use saw to cut out.. that one i go outside.. not going to let these army dentist do it.

both were using the injections.. for something like that, the dentist don't recommend GA leh.. its too minor
