I remember my dad taking me to get my teeth worked on from time to time, when I was just a little guy. But I don’t remember that much about it. I know that I had a cavity filled during one of my visits, but that’s about it. So, when dad passed away when I was just 18 years old, I was on my own. It was up to me to figure things out. So, I really did not know that such a thing as a wisdom teeth surgeon existed or why they existed.
I was at work one day, and I noticed that my gums were bothering me. It didn’t really upset me or anything. I just took some painkiller and kept moving. When it went on for a week, I brought it up to one of my coworkers. He was the one who asked me where I was having trouble and pointed out that I might need to have some teeth pulled. I really never thought of needing to do that in life.
