Check these out, too...
The procedure is performed on 5 million Americans every
year. And while parents and teens have to sign the standard release to go under
anesthesia, the safety and importance of the out-patient surgery itself is
being called into question.
The extraction causes roughly 11,000 complications annually,
ranging from permanent nerve damage to brain tissue infections, ABC News
reports. And still the surgery is strongly
recommended by the American Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons to
“prevent future problems.”
In reality, these future problems affect only 12 percent of
those with impacted wisdom teeth. That’s the same exact chance you could come down
with appendicitis. And as far as we know, girls aren’t handing over their
appendices when they hit their teen years. Hmm…

I just got mine out a few days ago, and it's not as bad as this article states! Like all surgeries, there are risks, but during my consultation they made it perfectly clear that if anything bad happened, it won't be forever. (aka, bruised nerve with 4 month healing process. punctured sinus with 3 week healing process... etc) And I had no choice but to get them out, I'm 15 and all four were fully impacted already. I could feel the pressure from them against my other teeth several days before I got them out, and it hurt. SO it was preventing future problems, and problems I was having.
And the surgery itself is not scary at all! If you're like me, they'll give you gas first to keep you relaxed (mixed with tons of oxygen) and give you an IV and in less than an hour, you're waking up. All done.
So, for all those girlies who are scared, it's not bad at all! All you have to worry about is what kind of ice cream you get afterward.
