Your throat will not be numb. They are totally different nerves. You will not choke.

Abshire,

Have you let your dentist know which sensations you are most frightend about , so they can explain it as they are going through and walk you through.. I remember being in fear and panic,, but Fearful is right. ultimately you aren't going to choke and you will be fine to breath too.. its more anxiety and thought of it that is the worst ahead of time.
