I was at the dentist’s yesterday.
It had been a few months since my bottom wisdom teeth started to erupt (I’m only 16!), and an X-ray showed that both were impacted—the left one diagonally, and the right nearly horizontally. I’m having them extracted on Feb. 12 (after the AMC).
I’m not expecting much:
(That’s not my tooth, by the way.) It’s a good thing my roots aren’t deep yet.
We found another one coming up (down?) in the upper left corner of my mouth, but since it’s still below the gum line, we’re going to wait. I was surprised to find, however, that I didn’t have any more—I thought everyone had four wisdom teeth?! Ah well, one less extraction.
