I had all four wisdom teeth extracted yesterday. I had only local anesthesia and mentioned my fear of the process. Dr. Rewari, whom I had not met before, was very nice, calming, and would tell me what she was doing and how it would feel/sound. The assistant, whose name I don't remember today (so sorry) was also very kind. It took 1/2 the time expected and I felt mostly tugging - not painful at all. It's hard to say that pulling teeth was a good experience but it was. I have no appreciable swelling today, no bruising, and have only needed the ibuprofen. Just wow.
