They took me into a bigger room with that dental chair right in the middle. The nurse was very friendly and gentle. They stuck a needle into me, strapped my arms down and told me to close my eyes when I felt sleepy. I thought I was awake for a while at the moment, but looking back, I was out like a light. I can remember telling them to be gentle. Then I remember thinking (or perhaps I said it? I don't know) "man, this stuff works fast!" and I was gone. The next thing I remember (kind of) is the nurse helping me off the chair and walking me into another room to a comfy recliner with a warm blanket. It felt like seconds that I was there. I got really chatty and was full of questions, but I'm sure I wasn't all that coherent...after all, I couldn't keep my eyes open long enough to focus on anything. When I got into the car and my mom drove me home, I immediately starting texting people telling them it went well and how good I felt. Because I felt great! I couldn't feel any pain and I wasn't swollen. I didn't even feel sick!
24 hours later I am still feeling great. I haven't even taken the narcotic they gave me and I'm very proud of myself. So I am super glad to report that getting my wisdom teeth out hasn't been near the nightmare I thought it would be. I haven't even lost my appetite. I'm hungry for regular food, but I'm sticking to the liquid/soft food diet. I'll be back to normal in no time! So if you haven't gotten your wisdom teeth out and you need to, just do it. It won't be the nightmare you expect either.
