**Sigh**

So, I survived the dentist yesterday. It wasn't too bad. No cavities:) I really like the ladies at this new dentist. My dentist is a woman too, and she's super friendly. It is like I suspected though, the wisdom teeth have to come out:( I have a consultation on Feb. 26 to go over everything with the oral surgeon and then we go from there. NOT happy. The bright side, if you can call it that, is that all my wisdom teeth have grown in (that's why they have to come out because they are pushing against my back teeth and I DON'T want braces again). With them being grown in, they just pull them, no gum cutting or anything like that. They said I'll be sore for about a day or two, and I should be back to normal pretty quickly. At least I have a little time before I have to have it done.

oh that will be a piece of cake for you! :o)

I remember when mine came out Aug before our Junior year... I was out like a light for 4 days (although they had to cut mine out.)

I hear ya though... no more braces ever again! We were so cute with braces though --- haha!

Bummer....sorry to hear that you have to have your wisdom teeth removed!

My son had it done last summer and breezed right through it and my daughter has hers out this coming March.

The pictures on this post and the last one are great! You'll do fine, just ask them to knock you out and when you get home have your favorite ice cream, blankie and a good movie on hand.

Glad it sounds like you will have a very easy time with the teeth.

Jenna just had hers out a couple of weeks ago. They were not big and came out pretty easily. She was sore for a few days, but did really well.

I hate the dentist, too, and I never have any real issues with my teeth.

I had my wisdom teeth pulled 6-7 years ago and it wasn't bad at all. The recovery was quick too, you can do it!

Hi Christie, Haven't left ya a comment in a while; it's nice to catch up with you again :) I talk to your mom & Jennifer quite regularly...

Aw, sorry to hear that you've gotta get your wisdom teeth out! I'm almost 40, still have mine and tell my dentist I'm just fine whenever I go in there! He keeps asking if I'm sure :)

I'll be praying that you breeze right through it - I'm sure you'll do just fine!

Blessings,
Michelle

I'm sorry to hear you have to have those teeth pulled, but glad that you won't mess up your pretty smile! Whitney has to have hers out this summer when she gets a break from school. I had mine out when I was about 17 and I don't remember it being too bad.

Let us know when the day is and we'll certainly keep you in our prayers!

You'll do fine. Been there, done that. ;-) (as have 3 other members of our family) I haven't been here for a visit in awhile and it's been fun catching up with whats going on in your neck of the woods. Blessings, Diane
