    Default Skin problems caused by wisdom teeth?

    From what I understand, wisdom teeth can seriously mess up someone's body but can they also mess with someone's skin (face)?

    I don't have horrible acne, but it's just annoying when it flares up. Over the past 3 or so years, I noticed that when my wisdom teeth start bothering me, I break out. I had never made the 'connection' until recently when my wisdom teeth starting coming in permanently.

    I'm getting all 4 yanked next Friday so I guess I'll soon find out, but I was just wondering if anybody else has experienced this?

    No, I haven't but it's possible that your teeth hurt more when you are stressed and the acne flares are related to the stress.

    Skin can show stress over general body problems. I found this from hottestacne.com that is news to me:

    Milk

    Recently, three epidemiological studies from the same group of scientists found an association between acne and consumption of partially skimmed milk, instant breakfast drink, sorbet, cottage cheese, and cream cheese. The researchers hypothesize that the association may be caused by hormones (such as several sex hormones and bovine insulin-like growth factor 1 (IGF-1)) or even iodine present in cow milk.

    The only side effect I've ever heard of is insanity. So, on the plus side, you'll be too crazy to care about zits.

    If you are having all 4 of those fuckers yanked out DO NOT accept local anaesthetic. You need to be knocked out cold in an OR, preferably with an oral surgeon (not now Benny) not a dentist doing the yanking.

    I just got numbed up when I had mine out, it wasnt that big of a deal till the numbness wore off. I agree with an oral surgeon for sure!

    The dentist offered 3 choices: oral sedation (pop a few benzos), benzo + numbness, or IV conscious sedation.
    I figured the IV sedation would be easiest. From what I've read and I've talked to a few people who've had it done (IV sedation) and it doesn't seem that bad.
    Frankly, the thought of the IV is freaking me out more than the surgery. I've never had an IV before and when I went to the consultation, the dentist checked my veins and couldn't find one. Apparently I have non-existant/ tiny ass veins and the only place he could find a vein was on the top of my wrist. He figured he'd have to use a children's IV catheter as well.

    The guy is one of the few oral surgeons in town and people from other dentist's offices get referred to him for major work like this, so I'm not worried on that front.

    I'm sure a few T3's will take care of that


    Why can't I be like my mother She was only born with 1 wisdom tooth and it's never moved.
    Although it could be worse, my flight instructor had 6 fucking wisdom teeth




    Seriously. Fuck wisdom teeth....

    Whatever you have you won't feel a thing, but if you are not zonked out be prepared for some sound effects. That's all I'm saying LOL

    I did fine getting all four pulled without being put under. But mine weren't impacted or even crooked. No infection present. And they were all the way in. They were just crowding the shit out of my mouth. I even healed fast. But what really hurt.... The next 2-3 weeks after when my teeth started to "spread" a bit now that I had a little more room in my mouth. But after that it was all good. I was able to floss without having floss break off and get stuck between my teeth.

    No way was I getting put under for that. But I understand not every wisdom tooth situation is the same. An oral surgeon would have been a waste of money for me.

    I had 3 impacted wisdom teeth pulled at the same time and used only local anesthetic, and it was totally fine. Of course everyone is different, so do whatever works best for you.

    The top ones are halfway out, whereas the bottom right one is just below the surface, and the bottom left is still completely down.
    No infections or impaction either, so I'm good on that front.

    It's just me being me and psyching myself out

    I had all 4 of mine out in 10 minutes with only local anesthetic, and 3 were impacted. No infection, or twisted gnarly roots. No problem. They were all out though, not below the surface. But my dentist was practically a specialist in yanking teeth out manually. He did a lot of denture patients so he was very skilled even though he wasn't technically an oral surgeon. My recovery was pretty swift, just soreness but nothing that a couple regular tylenol couldn't cure.

    Good luck on your procedure L1049!
