rip those suckers out

So today I had my wisdom teeth removed. I'd put it off for ages subscribing to the theory it was really just a gimmick that dentists/oral surgeons used to make money. I've never had any orthodonics done so there hasn't been a money motivation to keep my great teeth. I ended up just deciding to do it since I'm now taking better care of my teeth. It seems correlated to having both of my front teeth broken and replaced from being hit with a field hockey stick in the mouth during a game...

Anyway, everyone has passed on their stories, typically nightmarish. I get a chance to see what it's like. So far so good though.

Comments:

I have actually met a dentist who recommended against having those removed. His reason was that unless those teeth grew horribly wrong, they may come in useful when you are old and not that many of your teeth survived.

Going to have mine removed over the next few weeks , as I've been cursed with to many teeth , with such a small mouth. Going to have to go under , as they haven't yet come through.
