    Been having on and off jaw pain for about 18 months now, finally got around to having a dental x-ray done, done and dusted in one day. I was really not expecting the results i got back it certainly doesn't look good O.O

    i know all 4 are there, x-ray at least confirms 3 that i can see, i can feel both the upper ones under the surface of my gums by pressing on it with my tongue.. and the bottom ones are slightly showing and all that.

    When i have been getting jaw aches i have been getting hot spots where the teeth are etc it makes for one very grumpy Me.

    Yowch. [​IMG] Good luck with whatever you decide to go ahead with! My wisdom teeth haven't started bothering me yet, but I've had several trips to the dentist and I certainly can't say they're very pleasant.

    My mother has always wondered what wisdom teeth are actually for... [​IMG]

    I went to an oral surgeon to have mine removed. 2 of them were impacted. No big deal...no problems. Sorry you have to wait so long.

    I agree with the fact that I've already got enough molars. Eagerly awaiting the time these decide to show up. [​IMG]

    There isn't must of a waiting list at my dentists', but I don't know about yours. Can you get anything for the pain for the time being? I remember the jaw aches when the back molars started coming out (late bloomers) No fun! [​IMG]

    There isn't a waiting list to have them out in the dental chair with sedation and local anesthetic but costs money ( and you know i would freak out knowing and seeing needles go into my mouth O.O would rather not know whats goin on.) D:

    But mine would need to be done in hospital which doesn't cost money if done in public but has a 12 month waiting list [​IMG] Under general anesthetic.

    Ooh yeah, next Tuesday is the day I'm getting the needle stuck in my own mouth (freaking out here! [​IMG]) so I understand. And I get the money as well, the cost is mindblowing even with health cover. [​IMG]

    Sucks that you have to wait. Hope you can find some way to minimise the pain, whatever you can do. [​IMG]

    I had TMJ before I got mine out, but haven't had a problem since. [​IMG]

    I think I'd be looking for a different dentist to be doing mine if I were you.
    There's a mouthwash you cam get (from the dentist) that will help with swelling/tenderness until you get them out.
    I'd also recommend getting pain medication from the dentist.
    A year is way too long to be in pain from your teeth.

    ETA:
    I still owe $600 from when I got mine removed.
    Cost me $1,350 for only three of them with being knocked out.

    Can you try a different hospital?

    Even if your mom has to drive you a bit further it would be worth it to have them done sooner [​IMG]

    It's cool you can have them out in hospital for free though [​IMG]

    Maybe we should make you like Sleeping Beauty... knock you out for 12 months until the froggy gives you a kiss [​IMG]
