MINOR ORAL SURGERY

I'd undergo a minor oral surgery to remove my only third molar aka wisdom tooth that i had. the tooth was horizontally erupted. it took my senior more than 1 hour to remove that stubborn tooth.
.
first she numbed half of my jaw with local anesthesia. then when i felt completely numb, she started the procedure with opening of the flab near the location of my tooth. then she used a round bur to cut my bone and removed the bone. she loosened the tooth using a tool but still she can't remove it. so the surgeon in charge asked her to cut my tooth into several pieces before removing it completely.
.
just imagine all the tools in side my mouth. it was a terrible feeling. it made me realize how unease patient is when they are sitting on my chair. sakit. lengoh. takut.
.
saya insaf sebentar!
.
after the  tooth was removed. she sutured the wound. leaving me with a wound in my mouth.
can u imagine how i ate after that. but lucky me, it did not swell like others did. alhamdulillah. i was given antibiotic, pain killer, and MC for 3 days. weei!
i am lucky because the other 3 wisdom tooth are congenitally missing. meaning that i did not have to go through another painful operation like this.
.
to be honest it wasn't painful at all. ya la. because during the procedure i was numbed. but when the numbness disappear, i felt like crying for my Mama, because it was so damn painful. hate it. i can still eat nasi even with the suture in my mouth. sunggoh hebat kan?! but when it comes to pizza, i surrendered. nasi tak payah kunyah, but pizza haruslah dikunyah. kenapalah Mama nak belanja pizza time Kakak MOS. huhu.
 .
the x-ray of my teeth. sorry sbb sangat tak clear!
.
and now i only has 28 tooth! hypodontia i am! hehe.
