Sorry to hear it. :-( I had mine out last year (as well as the requisite panic attack right before) and it wasn't exactly fun, but it wasn't nearly as bad as I had expected. I bought some yummy sorbet for the occasion and ate little else for the first two days. Favourite books/movies are great for comfort after the fact (this, of course, depending on whether you get "fun meds" and how alert you would be as a result). Your dentist/surgeon will likely give you postoperative guidelines which can make recovery much easier, things like sleeping with your head elevated. The only thing I can think of which wasn't was brushing your teeth; once the swelling goes down enough for you to do so, the area might still be too tender for usual brushing. I found that BrushUps helped a lot to gently clean, in particular for the back teeth.

Hope all goes well and you have a speedy recovery. Take care of yourself.
