So for the last several months, the upper back right portion of my jaw has hurt every once in a while (very infrequently) when I chewed particularly vigorously. A couple of weeks ago, it happened when I was around my parents, and I told my mom that I thought my wisdom teeth were coming in; she scheduled a dentist appointment for me.
Today, I went in, got X-rayed, and found out that my wisdom teeth are sideways, roughly like this (And the middle is not supposed to be accurate; the sides are what matters):
00000000 / \
Not only are they oriented diagonally, they’re pushing up against my other teeth, and threatening to screw up their alignment something fierce. All four have to come out, and the only benefits are that I won’t have to miss any school, we caught it early enough to avoid damage (and pain), and I’ll have an interesting story to tell in a little while.
Fortunately, since we caught it so early (there’s only one spot that hurts, and that one rarely, and it’s further along than the rest), I don’t have to rush the surgery; however, I’d kind of like to get it over with. Obviously, I’ll try to schedule it after Gettysdope on the 15th.
