I had all four pulled when I was 34 or 35. I'd been told plenty of times before then that
they'd need to come out but since they weren't causing problems I said screw that. Then the
one lower that had come in only halfway, and crooked at that, started putting pressure on
the tooth next to it, and my teeth were starting to shift, so I figured it was time. Since
my dentist had had problems with an earlier extraction, ("Jeezus, your bones are hard!") I
opted for an oral surgeon and general anesthesia. If somebody's going to need to plant their
knee in my chest for traction, I'd just as soon not know about it. I think hard bones must
run in the family. My sister had to have an emergency extraction done by a Mexican dentist
who remarked afterward, "You bones very hard and heavy. You have skull like marble." I
myself have made similar observations about her, but usually in a different context.
