Hey guys. So, quick update. I went in for my consultation yesterday and the assistant was kind of nice I guess. The doctor came in to meet me. Apparently, my top two wisdom teeth are soft tissue impactions and my bottom two are partial bony. What a nightmare! I thought they had all erupted! Anyway, so I met the doctor you all have seen. We had a 4:30pm consultation and while this woman has stellar reviews, I unfortunately felt a bit rushed. The office closes at 5pm and it kind of seemed like she just wanted to go home. Unfortunately, although the assistant said that taking a Valium beforehand could help with just getting to the office, the doctor ultimately told me not to take it. My mom was with me in the appointment saying things like, “she’ll be fine” and other things that made me anxiety feel disregarded. I asked the doctor how hard my extractions will be and she said, “you’re middle of the road.” Oof. As I mentioned before, I thought I had a fifth wisdom tooth. However, this apparently didn’t show up on any x-rays, but SOMETHING is hurting my ear. Anyway, can anyone please respond to me? I’m losing my MIND with anxiety and dread and am pretty sure I’m going to die on Monday in the chair. I’m getting IV and the doctor said that she would be giving me an IV before doing the local injections. The doctor also said that she would be reaching out to the dentist office back in Austin and seeing about the fifth tooth, so I guess I won’t really know if it’s going to be five teeth until minutes before the procedure starts. This is a real nightmare scenario and I would love some help right now. I’m on edge 1,000%.
