    My lover right wisdom tooth is just tearing trough my flesh last week or so, and it hurts like hell..
    I have all four Wisdom teeth out, but only upper are completely out, lower came hlf way out year ago, and stopped, and now the right one continued, and I'm in really big pain..

    These things are hell to go trough!

    But shots look awesome! Really!

    Some people can live with them, but as you can see in the above pictures, the circled ones (Wisdoms) are grwoing into the teeth next to them, which is a NO NO anf on the right Upper, you can fully see theres no room for it to grow, so they force other tetth out, which appernatly hurt like a B%$&@ so you get them removed, everyone gets them, its just a matter of if there too big or small, and according to the hospital mine are HUMONGOUS!

    My xray looks really similar, except my wisdom teeth are bigger (yours are smaller than your normal molars, wheras mine are about the same size) and are further into my gum...

    I havent taken my xray to the specialist yet, but I figure I probably will have to get them out, my mouth/teeth havent been feeling very good for quite a long time and I'm sick of it.

    I'll see if i remember to take a picture of it tomorrow.

    I'm no doctor, but it looks like your lower wisdom teeth are impacted. That's where they go a bit sideways rather than straight up. That's a problem as it puts pressure on the other teeth near it. It's pretty common though, a lot of people have that problem.

    I had all four of my wisdom teeth out in the chair at the dentist. Mine weren't impacted though and were 95% through the gum anyway, so it wasn't too bad. They numb your mouth to hell anyway with a few needles. Impacted wisdom teeth (even if they're below the gums) can be removed at the dentist as well just the same. My gf's were below the gum and impacted and she had it done in the chair. Some people prefer to go to hospital to get wisdom teeth removed though. Either way it's a bit of a bother and you'll be in a bit of pain afterwards but it's a very common procedure.

    I recently had to go to hospital to have my tonsils removed, it was the first time I've ever been put under. The recovery for that operation was a lot worse than wisdom teeth.

    If you want something that hurts worse, think of closing your dick inside a door that only opens one way. And you're on the wrong side.

    Also it really doesn't hurt as long as you don't eat anything hard for a few days afterwards because if you get like a sliver of chip in the area where it was taken out it probably hurts worse than ^^

    Haha wow I just got my xrays on Thursday because I had major pain on Mon. or Tues. in my face.
    I saw the same thing as you, all 4 of mine are just under the gum. Except the they are growing kind of crooked toward my other teeth, so I gotta get all 4 of em out sometime within the next 4 months.

    usually it doesnt hurt.
    It depends what the dentist gives you.
    If they give you one of dem cushion things that puts ur gums to "sleep", it doesnt hurt at all. Only feel numbness.
    If they give you an injection, they don't even work goddam it
