  • became less wise today...

    Well, had a wisdom tooth removed today. First one for me, and luckly the last. Fully impacted, and laying flat, no fun. Needed a bone graft to fill the hole. Well, back to jello, ice cream, mashed potatoes, oxycodon, sleep and some xbox BFBC2

    Hope you are feeling better soon! Thirty five years ago I had four impacted wisdom teeth and one other impacted tooth removed on the same day. No bone grafts back then, you are actually living in better times. I urge everyone to take care of their teeth if at all possible.

      You know the toothbrush was invented in Alabama, right?
      'Cause if it had been invented anywhere else they'd have called it a teethbrush.

      Heal up Cowboy... been there, done that (minus the bone graft). Pain meds and sleep are your new best friends.

        Gee Cowboy, if you had told me I would have grabbed my channel locks and my Jack Daniels and hightailed it down there and taken care of it for you. Now I will just have to sit around and drink the JD by myself. Bummer

          Thanks for the thoughts guys. So far, its really not bad. An advantage to the bone graft, its bone powder packed in the hole, meaning the chance of getting a dry socket is almost none. Plus, I have an ARP-wave trainer that I hooked up and slept with it on all night. Slept solid for 6.5 hours without waking up and almost no swelling or pain this morning. (if your unfamiliar with what an ARP-wave trainer is, go here www.arpwave.com ) never thought to use it for helping heal a wisdom tooth surgery, but what do you know, they have a protocol for it. Just happen to be talking to the owner of the company a couple days ago and he told me to try it, so far, so good.

            Alphacowboy, glad you are doing well but found very little information on the arpsite? A internet searh also resulted little beyond something about a current running through the body to aid in healing. Maybe I can hook up a d.c. generator, positive and negative leads one one my head and one on my little toe? Start with a couple volts and build up from there

            Please give some details, and price, thanks. Frank

              Frank, it is a DC voltage. Its a little more complex than that though, there is different freq. and ways of using it. Denis Thompson, the owner of the company is a dear friend of my families, so I may be a little biased but I swear by it. Basicly for healing purposes it helps aid in blood flow to injuries but keeps the swelling down. It also aids in loosening up "locked" muscles, basicly allows tissue to release using the current. I had severe back pain, saw 3 different chiropractors, months of physical therapy at a local hospital, nothing helped. After two sessions with Denis, the pain has never come back, that was over 9 years ago!

                Reminds me about the time I went to the dentist to have a tooth pulled.
                I told the Doc, that I didn't want any Novocaine, just pull it an get it over with.
                He says, how about a little laughing gas? Again, I declined.
                That's when the nurse leaves and 30 seconds later comes back with a little cup, and tells me to take these. I look in the cup and see two little blue pills, Viagra. I said, what's this for. She says, "When the doctor grabs hold of that bad tooth and gives it a yank, you're gonna need something to hold on to."

                  I am both cautiously skeptical and optimistic when I hear about new things like this. Electricity has been used to speed up bone healing, and I use a "tens" machine to ease muscle pain so maybe on some level this technology you mentioned can be of help? I know I have herniated discs and degenerative disc disease which I doubt can be reversed, however I am open to learning more. Please give more information such as how you learned about this, how soon after did you see results( I know you mentioned 2 sessions but then why have the machine at home?) and the cost? Thanks

                    I was sceptical about these electricle muscle stimulating machines but I have terrible neck and shoulder pain and bought an Omron portable Tens machine years ago and use it at home whenever i`m hurting and it really helps it only cost about $200.00 I`d try it frank as you have nothing to loose but the pain

                      Tony, come on buddy, read my post above yours. I have a tens machine and use it. I agree it can be of help, unfortunately it does not heal anything. I welcome the temporary pain relief it offers at times. Frank
