It seems nothing can prepare us for wisdom teeth removal.
A bit of anaesthesia for extracting your wisdom teeth? Good luck trying to string together a coherent sentence.
Have you watched a video from someone fresh from dental surgery?
It usually looks like this, which has just gone viral:
Karly Weed has become an internet sensation after her mum Rachael uploaded the clip of her having a conversation right after having FOUR wisdom teeth taken out.
Our nineteen-year-old daughter, Karly, came home for the summer. She needed all four of her wisdom teeth extracted. Two were badly impacted so they thought it would be best to bring in an anesthesiologist and partially sedate her. I, her mother, took her to the dentist and waited until the procedure was done.
Her dad was in Cuba at the time on a business trip. We had no idea the reaction she would have. Everything made her cry so the nurse said to make sure I kept the conversation with her happy and to make sure she didn’t get too depressed while the meds were wearing off. By the time we got in the car, she was more calm but loopy as they come.
Thank God for stand still traffic because I was able to video her as we sat there. Her conversation was all over the place but her main focus never left what milkshake flavor she was going to get. She loves Ice-cream so I thought that would make her happy to look forward to getting a milkshake and keep her mood boosted. There is a small part where she goes into a deep angry voice and says ‘sir, back away from the vehicle.’
We live in Managua, and there are always window washers or vendors that are coming up to the car. She didn’t want any of their services! Karly loves to dance and is usually in a good mood, so it was no surprise when she came up with this deeply inspiring quote, ‘Don’t be moody when you can shake your booty.’
Wisdom teeth grow at the back of your gums and are the last teeth to come through. Most people have four wisdom teeth, with one in each corner.
Theyh usually grow through the gums during the late teens or early twenties. By this time, the other 28 adult teeth are usually in place, and therefore don’t provide enough room in your mouth for the wisdom teeth to grow properly.
Because of this, wisdom teeth can sometimes emerge at an angle or get stuck and only partially emerge. Wisdom teeth that grow through like this are known as ‘impacted.’
It is one of the most common surgical procedures carried out in the UK.
