I just went to the dentist today for a prelimary x-ray and examination, and one thing he highly recommended for me was to have my wisdom teeth removed. It's possible that one of them in my lower jaw is causing difficulties at this moment, but I don't exactly relish the idea of having my jawbone hacked up and teeth dug out unless it's absolutely necessary. To any of you that have had them out I ask you this, how bad was the overall experience and how long did it take you to recover?
I've been contemplating taking a week off from lifting for some time now, and this would likely be a very good time to coincide with the time off. Good thing I stocked up on protein powder, as I don't really see what else I'll be able to eat during the recovery period if I have this procedure done.
