The day I lost four teeth.

Not by accident of course. That would be horrible. xD
Nah, today I got my four wisdom teeth removed. Needless to say, I was not looking forward to the surgery at all. But it would be worth it in the end, no more swollen gums, hopefully.

First step was applying local anesthetics. Needles were inserted into several areas of the gum and mouth. It did hurt quite a bit, and then the numbness began. It felt as if your entire lower face were swollen up like a balloon when it's not. Mind you, it was not a pleasant feeling. But of course, it's better than the ripping pain when your teeth are pulled out. *wince*

The actual procedure was done in under an hour, I was half asleep during it too. LOL. The bottom two teeth were slightly compacted, so the gums surrounding them had to be sliced open before removing the teeth, and sewn back together. It just felt terrible afterward, and it was difficult to talk due to the gauze in my mouth. It was most painful after the anesthetics have worn off, and because I was not allowed eat or drink for at least four hours after the surgery, I could not take any pain medications.

But it's a lot better now, I just hope it heals as soon as possible.
