My father was a surgeon and 40 years ago he

insisted that we have our wisdom teeth extracted by an oral surgeon who's office was in a hospital complex.
I know from experience, anesthesia has changed dramatically in the last 40 years. My sons had their wisdom teeth extracted in the oral surgeon's regular office and were back in business pretty quickly---(one son was in some decent pain for 3 days). I was in bed for 5 days and looked like I had been in the ring with Joe Frazier for 15 rounds

  I never had wisdom teeth either; nor did one of my two sons -- Williamsburg Wahoo 10/01/2021 4:16PM
  Yeah. An advanced human. No wisdom teeth. -- Saratoga Hoo 10/01/2021 12:43PM
