I had my wisdom teeth removed about seven years ago, when I was 21.  I'd heard all of these horror stories about pain and agony, but it was almost like having a splinter removed or something.  I was told to moisten tea bag and then place the moistened bags on the sockets where the teeth had been removed, and this would prevent infection.  I hated doing it, but I had no problems with infection or anything and didn't even take much of the medicine that was prescribed to me.  I guess that I was lucky.
