I am facing extraction if 15 teeth, mostly front, and immediate dentures. I cannot sleep or eat due to being so nervous. My teeth are so loose that the dentist fears even the impression will pull some out. We are planning to do this under nitrous oxide and Valium. I do not fear the after pain at all but become crazy thinking about the actual extractions. The thought of needles in my gums makes me physically sick. What will I feel under this type of sedation? Are loose teeth easier to extract? He also says he will numb my gums prior to the injection but I am still terrified. Will I be aware of my teeth being pulled? Any advice might relax me a bit. It is all I can think of. This will be done in the next two weeks. Thank you for your thoughts!
