I believe that wisdom tooth suppose to appear when someone has wisdom huh. Do you know that wisdom tooth actually is known as Mandibular Third Molar? It is similar to other molars we have and it suppose to help us to grind food. What if this tooth giving you a problem? No choice but have to pluck it off lor, if not it will affect the tooth beside as well.
When you said you wanna remove your wisdom tooth, at that time, you will hear lots of stories: "You need a strong male dentist to pluck it as female dentist has no strenght to pull it off"; "You will get fever after that"; "If the tooth break half way then you are in deep sh*t"; "it was dem pain" etc etc etc. Havent go pluck also got scared liao. Hahaha.
Let me share my wisdom tooth plucking incident with all of you. I was having a bit pain on my left jaw quite frequently. It pained for few days then it went off. On n Off, On n Off like that. So decided to set an appointment with dentist to remove wisdom tooth.
First, the dentist escorted me to an X-ray room to check the condition of my wt. My wt came as 180 degree horizontally (like the picture below - arrowed). Next, I lied down on the chair to be ready for a small surgery (yup, removal of wt is consider a surgery). Dentist Dr Lim (old man = the boss of Lim Dental Group) came in and inject 3 anaestatic into my gum. Yup, is THREE injections and yes, it was freaking pain. Tears dropped off (normally I can stand the pain but the tears automatically came out, cant control). After 15min, IT started: the drilling, the slicing, the sucking (of blood), the cling cling clang clang (dont dare to look liao). The process wasnt pain as my gum was numb already.Pic credited to en.wikepedia.org
