I got my taken out in the dentists office last year, they gave me some drug to put under your tongue so you don't remember it really, though I still can remember most of it. Wasn't bad at all really, was one T3's the first day but I had never had pain killers before and the day just flew by. Was eating poutine within 18 hours of it.
My girlfriend went to the oral surgeon and was put out, but she wasn't able to eat for a few days and then was hurting for like a week. It really depends on how you deal with pain in the teeth and how complicated the extraction is.
My advice would be to find a dentist/surgeon that does it often, make sure to get some drugs, and for the first 24 hours, take them as much as allowed since you ain't going to notice the discomfort much. Oh yeah, stay away from smoking / drinking from a straw for a few days. My friend had dry socket and was hampered by it for about 2 weeks...
My wisdom teeth up top are coming in crooked and about to hit my other teeth so the dentist said I need to have them out within the next few months. I might as well get it over with while I have a month off to recover from it.
I pulled my wisdom teeth out myself. I picked up a piece of broken glass to slice open the gums and then grabbed a set of pliers and just pulled until they came out.
Four hours later I scored the game winning touchdown to win the State Championship--(only)my 7th of the day. (it was my freshman year...)
Pffftt. An hour before the state championship a guy from the other team shot me 12 times. I grabbed my pliers and pulled all of the bullets out. Then I threw for 4 TDs, ran for 3, and caught 2. My last running TD was for the win with 3 seconds left. I was an 8th grader playing up to varsity...
