As soon as my wisdom teeth popped up on the x-rays, we knew they were coming in completely wrong. Not quite horizontal, they pointed right at my other molars and threatened to disrupt the entire row.
Luckily (I guess), they stopped moving for many many years. They just sat there. Maybe it was complications of Celiac and mal-absorption and there wasn’t enough nutrients to continue the final tooth project. Whether or not that is the case, they are moving fast since I’ve been eating gluten-free for almost two years now.
I’ll spare you the details of the pain, but interestingly enough I will share that most of the pain isn’t in the actual teeth or jaw. It actually took me a few days to realize exactly where the source of this was. Its been going in waves for the last few months, but in the last week or two its been completely disorienting.
Fortunately, I was able to get appointments at the dentist for consultation, x-rays, and extraction within the next five days. Hopefully, the surgery doesn’t hurt as much as the current status quo.
