I have had horrible traumatic dental experiences my whole life. The last few dentists and procedures were so bad that it created an ulcer. So I let the dentist go for years. So now I think I have TMJ cuz I cracked back molars. I'm so terrified of the dentist I get light headed just thinking of going. Last time I thought I would work up the strength I got so sick I had to stay home. I can not take a chill pill because it does not work for me. I can not get sweet air either due to the opposite effect. Anyway I will need 3 wisdoms pulled and the rest (molars) are rotted and cracked. I'll need many extractions and root canals. So I'm looking to get IV sedation and I'm just terrified. I'm scared because I get nauseous when I'm anxious and I dry heave. Last I had my gallbladder out and woke up after 5 hours of surgery and spent the whole day throwing up. I have a fear of throwing up just as bad as the dentist. So what can I expect from oral surgery really? Will I wake up and throw up? Will I feel anything? What are chances of another dry socket? I don't smoke or anything but had one before so it was horrible. I figure if I get a lot of teeth pulled it will be a higher risk. Can I get a denture right away? I'll have no teeth to chew with so I wonder? Can anyone help me please? I haven't slept good in days and I'm in ulcer and cold sweats thinking about just the consultation. Will I just wake up and go "wow it was not that bad"? Anyone please help me I'm new on here and if I finally have a good experience I'll report back to help others but right now I need a miracle ...
