:Yes, there are good & bad experiences. Though I think people should be aware that although wisdom teeth are removed so routinely, there is a chance of problems. Had I known then what I know now I'd never have had my wisdom tooth extracted.

I had a good experience - an upper wisdom tooth removed when I was in my 20's. No pain, no complications.

In my early 50's I had a lower wisdom tooth extracted. Due do the injection & extraction I suffered lingual nerve damage. Which has caused numbness, adnormal sensations & a pain I couldn't imagine. After almost 2 years the pain is less, but the numbness & adnormal sensations are still there. Would I have the extraction done if I'd known? No...There as been research done, but very little.

Most extractions go fine, maybe an infection or something that a "pill" can fix. But I feel people should have a clear picture of the possibilities. As far as pain with the extraction - that was minor; the complications is what has caused my problems.

Information is important. Knowing the reason that the extractions are necessary & complications that are possible. There are many good results & some bad.
