• I'm addicted to making my gums bleed?

    I have straight teeth and have never once needed a filling or anything. The dentist tells me I have healthy gums and what not. But why do I like the sensation of itching my gums with toothpicks until they bleed and even until after? I also like seeing the blood on the end of the toothpick or floss Why?

  • Does a wisdom tooth increase my intelligence stats?

    I've had pain in my gums for a while and after I got it checked out, I was alerted that it was a growing wisdom tooth that is causing the pain. Does a wisdom tooth improve my intelligence stats or is it just a way for the developers to nerf me after the patch?

    So I was on amoxicillin for a week but a couple of days after the last dose the swelling came back, even my cheek became swollen. That was Tuesday and and last night the thing burst on its own. I have been rinsing with salt water, but of course freaking out over the tiny hole on my gums...now instead of a hole I see a White Dot and I’m not sure whether to find that comforting or alarming... I have been feeling shaky, but I also have major anxiety so I’m hoping that’s the cause... I have my dental appointment tomorrow to get the tooth extracted. I guess I’d like some reassurance that I’m not gonna die tonight, lol. And tips on avoid infection would be great, thank you.

  • How can I get my wisdom teeth removed without feeling Nauseous at all?

    Best answer: There will be no reason for you to throw up. You get anesthetized, they do the work, you get up and go home, you take Advil if it hurts a bit, and you eat soft foods for about 1-2 days. That's all. You're obsessing over nothing.

  • Can you ride a bicycle and or walk a long distance after getting local anesthesia and 4 wisdom teeth removed?

    Best answer: It isn't a great idea. You are supposed to refrain from strenuous excessive the first 24 hours of any extraction (to prefer age as bleeding) and cycling or walking a long way will count. You probably won't feel too much like it anyway. You would be better off getting a taxi/Uber to get home. Or ask a... show more

  • Can you go get your wisdom teeth removed by yourself?

    Best answer: This depends on how you are getting them removed.
    If you are being put to sleep, then no.
    If you just have laughing gas and the area is numbed, then possibly, depending on the dentist's policy.

  • How painful will it be to get my wisdom teeth removed at 24?

    Best answer: Stop living in fear. When I had my wisdom teeth extracted, I "knew" I was going to miss work for a week, be in excruciating agony for a week, that it would be just horribly awfully terrible. It was like nothing.

    Best answer: Stop living in fear. When I had my wisdom teeth extracted, I "knew" I was going to miss work for a week, be in excruciating agony for a week, that it would be just horribly awfully terrible.

    It was like nothing. I went to work the next day. Took Motrin for a few days to help keep it from swelling up and hurting, but never had much pain. Yeah, I ate a lot of soup and soft food for about a week. But pain? Not much at all.

    So don't make yourself miserable imagining horrible things that might never happen.

    Added later: My wisdoms were impacted, but I didn't have much pain at all.
