What's In My Mouth?


Have you ever had a wisdom tooth removed?

Well, I have, and for me, it was no big deal. But that probably has something to do with my ruggedness and tough-guy physique.

But apparently, for lesser mortals, it can be a bit of a hardship.




I have watched this about 20 times now and I swear I still laugh every damn time….

And Big Ups to the mom, who saw her daughter in pain, and was there for her to comfort her, console her, and of course to film her, making her a world-wide laughing stock.

Hahahaha! I saw that the other day, too - hysterical!
I remember getting my wisdom teeth out. While i was going under, I told the anesthetist or whatever that she looked like Wilma Flintstone. When it was all over, I thought they forgot to take out my wisdom teeth, and insisted I could walk, only to go all jelly legged on the floor.
Thank God my dad didn't have a smart phone back then.
Oh, and he also apparently heard me telling the doctors (when I insisted I could walk) that I'd been waaay more fucked up than THAT.
Still - no pain later, although my friends and I did enjoy the drugs for days, anyway. :)

Some of us are not so lucky--I had one removed while I was awake...no drugs, and by the end of it the dentist had his foot braced on the chair between my knees and I was gripping the arms as he wrenched these pliers back and forth...gotta love third world medicine.

Seriously messed me up for good.

I twitch and demand liquor whenever the word "dentist" comes up in passing conersation...

This reminds me of my clinical day Saturday. The people I worked with acted very similar to this. I feel like all I do is repeat myself all day. It is hilarious on the video though.

My wisdom tooth got stuck and the dentist braced a hand on the table and began pulling with all his might...

Not as bad as getting your own fist stuck in your mouth... It kind of looks like she's caught a live animal trying to jump into the back of her throat.

I dunno, I think your comfort, console and film comment is every bit as funny as the video. :-)

I had just one wisdom tooth out, and then I went camping in the rain. I'm not sure why I believed them when they said it would be fine to pull out a tooth and then go camping.

Fucking brilliant... i had to get my wisdom teeth out in OR cuz one was way up there, i fought going under for as long as i could and when the doc looked to see if i was out and i wasn't he asked, "are you fighting it?" i grinned and nodded and then he said "lights out" and i woke up in recovery where i was given, wait for it... dilaudid, what a fine day.
