It’s been just over a year since I first wrote about my wisdom teeth coming in and having some discomfort with them. If you’d like, you can go back and read it HERE. I was told that all four of them are impacted and that I would need them removed. But when they sent out the request to our insurance to get me approved to get them taken out, our insurance said no. Because they’re dumb as fuck and said that my wisdoms have to be actually coming in, breaking through the gums, and to be infected before they can approve it for me to get them removed. Which is the stupidest thing I’ve ever heard. I need to have an infection in order to be approved to get my wisdoms taken out WTF. The longer I have them, the more they will grow in, and since they’re impacted, they will push against my molars and make all my other teeth crooked.
But anyway, back to the actual point of this post. I haven’t had any kind of oral pain or gum or jaw aches or anything like that. Not like last time. But last night I was chewing ice cubes and the lower right side of my mouth felt kind of weird. It felt like I had some food stuck somewhere. So I felt around that molar with my finger and I felt the top of my wisdom tooth already out of my gums. And it’s the same one that was causing me pain last year. In the xray it showed that was the one that was coming in quicker than the others.
So two things, I haven’t had any pain or discomfort at all considering one has already broke through my gums. I didn’t feel any different other than thinking I had food stuck there but it was really just my wisdom poking through.
And two, of course I knew I was going to have to get them removed because all four are impacted, but I was totally dreading this day where I knew I would have to get them removed soon because they broke through my gums. As most of you may know, if you’ve been following my blog, I am not afraid of needles at all and surgeries are no big deal for me now, however, I am actually pretty nervous for this one surgery. It gives me horrible anxiety just thinking about it and what will be done. Maybe because I know they’re gonna have to dig deep into my gums to take them out ._. I mean, I know I will be relieved to have them gone, but the thought of it right now is a little scary.
This morning I made my appointment to go to my dentist so they can do updated xrays to see where the rest of my wisdoms are at the moment and so I can get approved to get them removed now. As much as I wish I could just avoid all this, and just let them grow in, that’s not even an option. I have no room for them, plus they’re all impacted so they won’t come in straight anyway, if at all. So these babies have to get yanked out ._.
This is the part where I would normally attach a photo showing what’s going on, but I couldn’t get a good angle on that wisdom coming in lol
But yeah, Wednesday morning is my appointment and I really hope my insurance approves it this time for me to get all 4 removed.
Thanks for stopping by my blog!
And have a great day everyone(:
