So, today I had my #16 wisdom tooth yanked, totally painless. swelling went down within three hours. Watch the video above. The action really starts at 3 minutes. I couldn't believe the speed and accuracy the doctor worked at, absolutely amazing. His quickness scared me a little, but the result was immediate relief and within hours of the removal I felt much healthier, it has been a total of 6 since the operation and I feel great!
