Wisdom Teeth SUCK!
The very X-ray you see before you should be all the proof you need that evolution actually happened.
You see - a sudden shift in diet over the last 10,000 years or so has caused the humble wisdom teeth to do THIS sh*t.
The technical term is "impaction".
Now, if you'll notice, The Axinar has relatively STRAIGHT wisdom teeth, but the top two and the bottom right one never erupted at all and the left one is only half way through.
Now, my dentist told me there was a cyst on the lower right that I think I can make out in this X-ray, but there also looks to be something funny looking on the lower left as well (any dentists out there who can read this?).
Anyway - the current plan is they're coming out Thursday.
With nuclear explosives if necessary.
Mrs. Axinar has been reading all the web sites and telling me what a mess this could turn into.
And, yes, I know I put it off too long.
So ... in order to scare myself even more thoroughly ... :)
Anyone here had wisdom teeth out after 40?
Oh ... and the other morbid thought that crossed my mind ...
Suppose I'm killed in a fiery crash on the way to the oral surgeon ...
They won't be able to identify me with dental records because the dental records are WITH ME ... :)
