My wisdom teeth have been slowly coming in over the past 6 months or so and I believe I'm to the point where they are going to need to be removed. Three of the four teeth have broken through my gums while the fourth one is nowhere to be found (I'm assuming it's impacted). One of the teeth has come in fully with absolutely zero problems. The two top wisdom teeth are another story, however. One of them has only slightly broken through my gums and has been this way for the last several months with no growth (that I can feel or see). The other feels like it is mostly grown but I don't believe it's fully grown. I actually think one of the teeth has caused one of my lateral incisors to shift. On to the questions: -How long is the procedure? -How painful is post-procedure? -How long is recovery on average? -How much more pain would I be in if I were to skip the general anesthetic and use only local anesthetic with nitrous oxide? -Is there any point in leaving the tooth that has fully grown alone? I realize these are probably questions best answered by my dentist but I'd like some answers from some other users who have had the surgery done...I've always been nervous about anything dentist related (even the sound of that damn drill is enough to set me on edge) and I would like to get an idea of what I should expect.
