Had two teeth removed back in january, told the dentist i am a nervous patient and she arranged for me to come back another day whereby an aneasthetist sedated me with Midazolam and i dont remember a thing about it....highly recommended!
Having teeth removed
I've had all 4 wisdom teeth taken out. First out was at the dentist with the usual injection. It was pretty horrible so I asked for general for the next three as two hadn't come through.
The general and removal of the other 3 was way worse - woke up looking like i'd been in a fight with finger print bruising on my neck etc, split lip etc. Truely horrific experience. I was told it would take about 30mins - it took 4! My blood pressure had dropped so low because I bled so much that they wouldn't let me out til i ate something. They gave me biscuits. I was a mess for about 10 days after the op.
On the other end of the spectrum, Mrs Lunge had all 4 removed under general (she also had the option of 2 under sedation or 4 under general). She had no bruising, a bit of an ache for 2 days but otherwise remained unscathed.
Amusingly, the things that knocked her about most were antibiotics that they gave her to prevent further infection. They made her feel like she was drunk for a week!
