The Struggle Of Getting Your Wisdom Teeth Out
Top 10 Trends / YouTube

The pain of getting your wisdom teeth out is something almost every teenager dreads but has to go through. About two weeks ago, I got mine removed and it was the most painful experience of my life. I mean, honestly, you never realize how sensitive your mouth is until someone rips out four of your teeth. Once you're hopped up on pain killers it seems all sunshine and rainbows and it doesn't even phase you that you're most likely not going to be able to eat normal food for about a week. Here is the process you go through once you get your wisdom teeth out told to you through some hilarious gifs:

If you're like me, and you've never been put under anesthesia before, you're a nervous wreck waiting in the waiting room for your appointment.

Once your name is called, you walk down the hallway where the dental assistant will plug you all up to the different machines that monitor your heart while you're under anesthesia. You watch them hook you up to these different machines which allow you to hear your heart pounding out of your chest which only makes you feel more stressed out.

The dentist comes into the room and smiles and talks to you asking where you go to school and anything that comes to their mind to calm you down while you're just thinking "let's just get this over with," (this is almost worse than when they try to talk to you with their hands in your mouth). They then will tell you to either count backwards from 100 or count to three and just like that you're out.

Before you know it, you wake up and you're taken to the recovery room where you honestly don't even know what just happened. All you can feel is your chipmunk cheeks and cotton gauze in your mouth. You will try to talk but most likely nothing you say will either make sense or be relevant to the current situation.

You're taken home where the only options of food you have to eat is anything that can go down your throat without chewing. Which sounds good at first because that means you can eat mashed potatoes, ice cream, mac and cheese, pudding, or soup. But believe me after awhile, you will long to eat something that crunches and you will be hungry 24/7 and these mushy foods will no longer satisfy your hunger.

After a few hours of being home, the aftermath of the anesthesia wears off and the numbing goes away. At this time you realize that you are in excruciating pain and you basically feel like you're going to die.

But then your mom gives you those amazing pain killers the dentist has provided you, which makes you feel extremely happy and helps you completely forget that you even got teeth ripped out of your mouth only a few hours ago.

But after a week, your pain should slowly go away, the struggle of having to eat only soft foods will diminish and you will finally be able to chew normal food. Nothing will make you happier than the feeling of having something crunch in your mouth again.

The Superbowl is the biggest football event of the year, and the 50-year history of the competition has seen a lot of memorable moments. The event first began in 1967, when the first AFL-NFL World Championship Game was played in Los Angeles. Since then, the NFL has grown from a small regional competition to an international phenomenon. Over the course of the last 50 years, the Superbowl has seen some amazing plays, memorable moments and incredible records. This includes Tom Brady's record of five Superbowl titles, the first time the Patriots won three consecutive championships, and the Steelers' record of six Superbowl titles. The event has also become a cultural phenomenon, with millions of people tuning in each year to watch the big game. There are now commercials, halftime shows, and other events that make the Superbowl a true American spectacle.

11 Genres Of Music That Originated From Black Culture

Numbers don't lie, up in the charts many times, black culture has defined the music industry. Music is a worldly language that can be understood by people all over the world. You bet black culture has taken over the music industry, but not from the way you may think. I'm not talking about their prominent presence in the rap game, but the origins of eleven different genres of music. Black culture is always using their heritage and ancestral knowledge to transmute the current energy to a higher frequency. Personally, I'm not surprised that many of these music genres have originated from black culture. Thankfully, I've been able to grow up in a diverse environment. I can only thrive in a diversity of friends.
