I had four wisdom teeth removed about six years ago. I must admit that I didn't have a bad experience like others had. I looked like a chipmunk for approximately two-three weeks and I had bruises on my face due to lack of blood circulation. I didn't experience excruciating pain as well. My oral surgeon prescribed me Tylenol 3 and antibiotics to prevent from getting an infection. I had an allergic reaction when I took the antibiotics so the surgeon advised me to stop taking them.
