Extracting wisdom

Wisdom teeth that is.

Had a good thorough cleaning done, a filling replaced, and next week it's back to the dentist to have my wisdom teeth removed.

Three of them are fine and aren't causing too much trouble. The fourth one decided long ago not to come out properly and is embedded in the back of my jaw on its side. That one does cause occasional problems, especially with trapping food. That one definitely needs to come out, and the dentist says that while I'm under, the other three might as well come out too instead of having to come back another time.

Hopefully the extraction and recovery are uneventful. I wonder if I should ask to keep my teeth...
