Has anyone here had their wisdom teeth removed when you were older? I know it's common to have them taken out when you are in your late teens/ early twenties but for some reason, that didn't happen for me. I did have two taken out many years ago because of being impacted, and if I would have been smart, I would have had all of them out at that time. I now have a cavity in one that requires it to come out and I was just wondering since I'm "40'ish" what exactly would I be experiencing. Lots more pain??? I'm afraid of that as I don't do pain very well. Both teeth that are left are not impacted, however, I'm still planning on going to :zzz: for the procedure!
