That's what I am experiencing right now. I had all 4 of my wisdom teeth extracted yesterday. Not fun in any stretch of the imagination. It's absolutely horrid, if I'm being honest. I was put to sleep for the procedure, so that was good...and so weird.
The bottom two were impacted, growing in sideways, and the reason I had the work done. They are naturally the most sore. Today is the second day and I have not taken any pain meds. It still hurts but nothing major or unbearable. Just enough to make me feel awful and utterly useless.
I feel really gross not being able to brush my teeth. I seriously LOVE to brush, so it's kind of freaking me out, not being able to. I can't even believe how much I slept yesterday.
I am extremely grateful that my teeth are in such good shape as they are. If I had to go through more major dental work--forget it! I rarely drink soda but I am NEVER gonna drink it again. I'll stick to my water!!
I am also going to seriously limit the sugar and sweets in this house.
I don't have many cavities and for 37 years of NOT going to the dentist--that's pretty good! I'd like to keep it that way & keep my kids mouths healthy too.
Guess I can be using this time to catch up on some crochet and other projects....
