Just one impacted tooth (upper canine). It was all fairly uneventful really. I was awake, which was okay, then again I only had one tooth exposed and it was in a reasonable easy posistion.

No pain or swelling afterwards. The stitches got a bit tight and I had them removed early, once the chain was actually pulling on the tooth, some pain, but no more than with a usual adjustment, nothing that couldn't be treated with over the counter pain killers.

The tooth came down in 6-9mths

Good Luck

I had the exact same thing back in mid-07 I'm still in the process of pulling them across to my braces to be attached. Got braces beginning of 08 was hoping I'd have this all finished by start of 2010 but im leaning more towards mid-late 2010 at this rate.

I was put under as well and it was pretty much a painless recovery just make sure u keep taking painkillers as required. Swelling will be around for a little bit but will go down.
