Growing up is tough! as iv got older (21 now) i clench my teeth at night & my cross bite has become worse causing pain & clicking in my jaw. After i get my wisdom teeth removed ill likely be starting my journey with Invisalign. I am actually really excited to see if it helps with the tension in my jaw long term to have a bite that fits together right! there is one problem though i am terrified of the wisdom teeth removal, for a couple reasons. the first being i have never had laughing gas or been put under, i do not know what to expect & all the videos on YouTube of people after the procedure are horrifying to me. i am worried about so much, im worried i might be thrust into little space or say something of that nature in-front of my mom. i live with my boyfriend & will be recouping at home with him but i bet my mom will be bringing me & taking me back from the appointment. i am not afraid to say anything infront of my boyfriend, he doesnt exactly know im a little cause ive never really told him but im little around him a lot & i dont think he would be phased if i pulled out the daddy word in such a vulnerable & hurting state, he assures me well go get a smoothie & hell take good care of me.
My questions for you lovely people are what was your experience like getting wisdom teeth removed, or a similar procedure where they put you under or make you loopy? is there anything i can do to prepare myself or will i just be super high on dentist drugs & not know what im saying? whats the worst that could happen?
im also afraid of the pain in the days after, how did you all cope?
and lastly when i do start using invisalign is it a good idea to continue pacifier use? anyone with invisalign id love to hear any of your stories & input about it. i figure if the pacifier is adult sized & fits & sits good in my mouth then there wouldnt be an issue & might even aid in making my mouth comfortable? just dont wanna compromise any of the positive results im looking for.
