David Archuleta Gets His Wisdom Teeth Removed
David Archuleta checked in with fans on his YouTube channel just before his visit to get his wisdom teeth removed. The ‘American Idol’ season seven runner-up said he’s been trying to get the teeth out over a year but he’s been too busy.
“I’m a little bit excited, but then again I’m not sure what to think. I don’t know how to prepare for this kind of thing,” Archuleta says in the video. “I just know I’m gonna take some medication in 45 minutes and then later on I’ll get my teeth pulled and get my mouth drilled and stuff like that. It will be good. I was supposed to get my teeth pulled over a year ago. That’s how long I’ve been trying to get them out, but I never had time and I never had a long enough time frame for me to get them out. I’d have to sing or go somewhere. So I have enough time this week to get them out and be swollen or knocked out or whatever for however much time I need. So hopefully I’ll recover soon enough for whatever the next thing is. But there isn’t too much happening. I guess there’s some writing sessions for the next pop album coming.”

Update: Archuleta told his Twitter followers (@DavidArchie) after the procedure:
1 down 3 to go.
Wow… Those 2 bottom teeth were rough lol. They’re all out now though! Hallelujah!
Props to Jaci and Lauren for being great dental assistants haha.
My bottom lip isn’t working! I can’t feel the lower half of my face!
I can’t fall asleep, and I look like a chipmunk. But there’s a cool lightning storm going on outside.
A nice rainy day today, and I look like a chipmunk.
That was a crazy day for David and his fans. It started the day before when he tweeted excitedly that he might be able to finally get his wisdom teeth out the next day. Then in the morning he tweeted “Today’s the day… dun dun dun.” AND at the same time the sound clips for his Christmas album appeared on Amazon! And then David treated us to his ringside coverage of his own extractions. It was epic! But you missed one of the best parts Popdirt – the photo David twitpic’d of himself right before the first extraction – in the chair with a huge clamp holding his mouth open! Check it out: twitpic.com/jn07a <- Gotta love him. And check out his Christmas album sound clips on Amazon! I cannot wait to hear the whole thing. Also, check out the autographed handmade Archuleta fan quilt and pillow on EBay – proceeds benefit Rising Star Outreach.
Wait ~ The “Don’t Pay For White Teeth” ad. Did you plan that? lol Perfect!! David has really white teeth.

David Archuleta is so awesome considerate of his fans! We LOVE him! Waiting 4 the next BIG event–his Christmas album on Oct 13th! YAY!
Only David could keep us fans informed (and tbh pretty entertained) of how he was doing during the whole wisdom teeth affair! He is the BEST (and so nervous in that video). I LOVE YOU David -also can’t wait for the CD!!!!
