just relax, drink lots of fluids, and take your painkillers before you actually start hurting. they work better that way. and anesthesia makes me nauseous, so stick to sprite or something that is easy on your stomach. and follow all the dr's rules- no sucking out of straws, smoking, etc. i got dry socket and it sucked! it should start feeling considerably better in a week or so. and don't go to disneyland the day after being put under and having all four impacted teeth out like i did- it was miserable. but hey, now i know exactly where the nurse's office is at disneyland.
