Got school starting on 23rd, tryin to figure out if I should pull them out now or wait till winter break.
How long are you in pain after removal? Also do they put you to sleep with anesthesia or only local anesthesia

Honestly I've had my skull fractured, 50 stitches in my knee, and broken my arm. For me, nothing was worse than have my wisdom teeth pulled. You can't eat, lose a ton of your gains, and the pain was there 24/7 all day and night. Maybe my teeth were different than others, but the pain was so bad I could barely sleep for 2 weeks and I had a constant headache from the jaw pain. AND the doctor was too stingy to prescibe me extra Vicodin.
It was 2 weeks of hell for me. Hopefully you have better luck.

It's different for everyone, depending on your teeth, I personally had to have 1 week off work and was still a little sore at work the next week but it was bearable. On the other hand some of my mates had theres out and were fine within 2 - 3 days. If I was you just get it done and out of the way now and you will be sweet for school on the 23rd either way and won't have to worry about it again.

Yeah for me it was two weeks too, your cheeks stay puffy as fawk and you really can't eat anything but porridge. I recommend you pull all four out at once, I'd rather get it all over with than to have to sit through eating crap and lingering in pain two times. Oh yeah I think it's just local anesthesia, I had 16 shots (4 shots for each tooth), all you feel is the pressure of the surgeon cracking and pulling them out and the drilling.

I got mine with just freezing and was back at work after 1 day of rest. Was prescribed T3s and percocet, I only used ibuprofen for anti-inflam and a few normal tylenols.
When did people become such weak phaggots? My face hurts can't go to school waaaah
The longer you wait, the worse it is. And if you're out for 2 weeks its because you have a ****ty dental surgeon. Some people like me actually go to Dental Surgeons who work as dentists, you know, accomplished dentists so they know enough to pull the wisdom teeth before they root.** Electrical Engineer Brah **

Mine were compacted, basically growing half out & half under existing teeth and had to have the section of jaw bone next to the wisdom teeth removed so the tooth could be removed and then the bone was put back in place and the inside of my cheek was stitched to the gum to aid the healing process.
The pain was a constant ache that made me wanna trash everything around me. It lasted about 1 week.

Great timing...I am about to have the bottom set removed. Had the uppers taken out about five years ago.
There must be a huge variety of individual tolerance on this one. Either I, like a couple others on here, have a high tolerance, or some of you are either sallys/have bad dentists.
Pain only lasted around three days for the most part and it was tolerable the whole way. I had mine done in mid-afternoon and even went back to work in the evening and finished my shift (I have to point out that my job at the time didn't require speaking to anyone). Obviously food choices are limited initially but I was eating normally within a week. I also should mention that I have always had good recovery levels.

The real truth about wisdom teeth
All the people saying they have a high pain tolerance and calling others p*ssies have no idea what they're talking about.
I had my top right wisdom tooth out, the next day I had minimal pain and the day after that, no pain at all. I didn't need pain killers.
I then had my top left wisdom tooth out a couple of months later and I was in agony for a week, I couldn't leave the house and still felt pain for another week after that. Strong painkillers eased the pain slightly but mornings were unbearable. I've broken my leg, arm, nose and hand, also had 10 stitches in my head blah blah blah and I've never felt pain like I did with my second wisdom tooth extraction.
At the end of the day, it's nothing to do with how tough you are or how good your dentist is. You don't know how your body is going to react until you've had all your wisdom teeth out and by then it's too late to say no. So just get it done and know that if you're unlucky, you'll be in pain for 1-2 weeks and if you're lucky, you'll hardly experience any pain. Either way, the relief of not having a tooth digging into your jaw and cheek every time you close your mouth is worth the pain.
Also I had the same dentist for both extractions before anyone questions his profession.
