I am scheduled to have a complete mouth extraction (15 teeth, 2 of which will be surgical) and alveoloplasty under nitrous and Valium. Most of my teeth are extremely loose already. I am in a panic about the numbing shots. I am sure there will be numerous shots and my biggest phobia is the needles in my mouth. Will I be able to feel each injection? If I will be able to can anyone suggest how I can handle this panic? Will I also be able to hear the teeth being removed and feel anything? Does the avleoloplasty cause additional pain and a longer recovery? Will I feel the grinding? I do appreciate any assistance and encouragement I can get!
