you'll spend about three days hating life and not eating. make sure you take your pain med before the novicain wears off. i made the mistake of waiting and it was bad. have a good meal before you go in and stock up on jello and such no ice cream it hurts because it to cold. dont plan on working afterward or school or whatever. not only will it hurt but your cheeks will swell up and you'll look like a chipmunk. hope i dont freak you out but it helps to know what your in for.
When I got mine taken out I supposedly 'swam' down the hallway to the waiting room and while my mom drove me home I had taken out the gauze and padding in my mouth and was gushing blood from my mouth into my car. (smart mom. I now realize why we took my car). She crammed my mouth full of Kleenex and next thing I knew I was eating mashed potatoes and gravy and milkshakes for 4 days.
