Blogging from my itouch!
Okay so I thought I should document my wisdom teeth extracting experience, so here goes
Had swollen gums and an inflamed throat on monday, so I was thinking that I should let the throat heal before I see the dentist.
Wednesday came and my throat was okay an I went to google swollen gums and wisdom teeth and decided I should yank the nasty little buggers out the next day.
I couldn't chew much by thurs and I couldn't clench my teeth so I knew I couldn't delay it already. So I went to the dentist only to find out I needed parental consent cos to remove the lower tooth required surgery zzz so I called my mum and so we arranged the thing to be later
Anyway the dentist had a hongkong-American accent hahahahhaha
He was like "you're quite a fast developer huh, most of your peers are only growing out their wisdom teeth now"
Oh and I just found out my brother grew his wisdom teeth when he was 14 like what lol but he doesn't have any problems with them so yeah.
I couldn't really open my mouth wide cos of the swelling and he was a little sian cos small mouths are more difficult to work with and I felt like saying I have a normal sized mouth!!!!!! I just can't open it wide now oh well
He gave me 5 injections and I was tearing up by the last two. Every time I opened my eyes I would close them again quickly cos I didn't want to see how long the needle was haha. My previous extraction I was given 2 injections cos I was only removing one tooth so it was bearable, but 5 is a bit too much. Quite painful.
He finished everything pretty fast! At the end I thought he was still removing my tooth but he was already stitching me up. I saw the string, freaked out mentally and shut my eyes again.
just to gross you out: I can touch the end knot of the string with my tongue heh. I haven't touched the wound with my tongue so far due to two reasons, one is not to disturb the healing process etc and the other is cos it's quite difficult to reach it in the first place cos of the swelling.
Yeah then the assistant stuffed the gauze into my mouth.
Cos of the anesthetic half my bottom lip was completely numb and it was so weird haha but quite fun to touch also lol. And my face felt crampy when I tried to smile.
I couldn't chew for the next two days, so agonizing. I had tau huey, Campbell mushroom soup and porridge for those two days. Thank God I didn't have any problems with swallowing my medicine.
Left side of face still swollen, but I can chew today! Yay
Oh and I drooled on the first night lol. Sian.
I'll add more details later la. Now too lazy already.
So happy that I can chew cos I can eat more for Dad's birthday dinner later! Whee
