Am ok - minus 5 teeth - not 4 - and am thanking the pharma researcher who invented vicodin. Besides the 4 teeth on the upper left, the traveling dentist also took the far back upper right molar since it had an abcess. My dentist (at whose office this was done) only charged me for 4 extractions (he called it a cash discount). He knows I am paying cash, have a fixed income, and have to save up in order to do what needs to be done.
The traveling dentist was very kind and skilled. Other than the extraction of the eye tooth (oy), the entire process was faster and easier than I had dreamed possible. He was funny, and reassuring and now I know that the rest of the extractions (6 to go) will not cause me to be as nervous as I was about these.
