No not too bad, of course the needles into the gums for the initial painkiller hurt but I got plenty of strong painkillers, so it was just a dull throbbing occasionally. It was freaky cause you can hear your teeth cracking and breaking as they dig em out. <shudder>
I wouldn't have minded so much but this occured right before my ship went on deployment, so most of my last few weeks to get decent food were shot, I was stuck eating soup and milkshakes.
heres what the convo went like....
(I am in getting the required dental exam prior to the ship leaving)
the Navy dentist as hes poking around: "Oh"
me: "MHMH" (translation..."what?")
doc: you have all your wisdom teeth.
me: "MHMH" (translation..."yes")
doc: "do they hurt? are they giving you any trouble?"
me: "MHMH" (translation..."no")
doc: "oh...well they got to come out"
doc: "they just do, its policy"
me: "MHMH" (translation..."thats the most ignorant thing ive ever heard in my life")
doc: "wait here while i set up a table, we'll do it right now"
me: "stupid %$^# dentists" (translation..."stupid %$^# dentists")
5 minutes later they were shooting me up.
