Yep. I lucked out and had no wisdom teeth, so all factory issue parts still here :D

No.

My upper first premolars (two teeth) were removed during orthodontia when I was about 15 and my wisdom teeth (four teeth) were removed when I was about 23.

No bridgework or other replacements yet.

Had all my wisdom teeth removed at 19, then drove myself home. The dentist used hypnosis instead of anesthesia.

Wisdom (ha, ha) teeth extracted, and one tooth molar removed. Actually have one impacted wisdom tooth left now that I think of it. Darn you, I will worry about that now!

I've got eem all including wisdom. Have some funky mutation where my jaw bone spurred up and stopped them from pushing the rest of my teeth. So they are all sub dermal but not advancing any more.

Had second bicuspids removed at 14, before braces. Wisdoms pulled when 21 when in the military (impacted)... They also removed a supernumerary (33rd tooth)

@jseureau: It wasn't bad for me, but everyone's different. I didn't get put under, the doc just gave me this mixture of valium and demerol to keep me from hurting too much, along with a few novocaine shots, but almost all of my friends were put all the way out, so it's really up to your doctor. Once I got home, I slept most of the day in 30 minute spurts, so my caregiver (mom) could change out the gauze in my mouth. I was a little sore, but Loratabs work wonders for that. The only real bad part was the food. I ate nothing really solid for a few days, but I probably could have after a little while and was just being cautious. All in all, it wasn't a terrible experience. I had mine done on a Friday and was healed up enough to go into work on Tuesday.

I have all except my wisdom teeth. No cavities, never needed braces.

I had all four of my wisdom teeth pulled at the same time a year ago. It took 45 minutes, and I was put completely under. When I woke up, I was just a little tired and sore but completely coherent. It wasn't a bad experience at all, just sore and a little swollen. I did drool on myself for the first day a lot because my bottom lip was numb.
