So, my bottom right molar at the back needs to be pulled. OrthospamNot the wisdom tooth, the one before it (or the one that USED to be before it.. no more wisdom teeth for me Orthospam...) OrthospamIt's been infected for about a month and a half on and off (with antibiotics) and has been causing me pain for a bit longer than that. OrthospamA piece of it has broken off and it's in pretty gruesome shape. OrthospamI really don't want to keep it, I want it pulled.
I was at the dentist on Saturday, they were gonna pull it when they did my root canal, but I couldn't force myself to handle it after she said that I'd feel alot of pressure on my jaw. . .
So, she referred me to a specialist that I went to, to get my wisdom teeth out.
They are going to check to see if any of my other teeth need pulled too, because my dentist only x-rayed my bottom teeth. Orthospam(When I say to see if they need pulled, I mean if they need root canals - cause I can't afford root canals, they're so expensive here! Errr - and painful! but that could have been because of the infection and the freezing didn't take right.)
But, anyway, my question I suppose is, is it silly of me to ask for deep IV sedation or GA for something that's only going to take 10 seconds or so? OrthospamEither way it will depend on what the specialist says, but I'm way too scared Orthospam to do it fully awake! Orthospam Orthospam
I really don't think I can handle it with just a local anesthetic.
