Wisdom teeth

On an entirely more mundane note to what I just finished writing about, I've got a wisdom tooth coming through in the lower-left bit of my mouth, and it's really quite annoyingly painful.

Why are they called wisdom teeth? Was some wise-crack implying that we have to go through pain to acquire wisdom? Gah…

  1. Buy some clove oil from Boots. Its marvellous. You have to ask for it from the chemist bit.

  2. I'll certainly bear that in mind… but perhaps if I just leave it it will go away. :)

  4. Argh I do not envy you. I had to have two of mine taken out two summers ago before they had even fully come through as there was no space for them! The mini-operation wasn't too bad thanks to the anaesthetcs, but it was the post op pain that was a killer!

    If clove oil doesn't work (though it should) try Bonjela, or just ask the chemist for teething gel they use on babys' gums.
