Hi I am so scared right now ... I need to have my wisdom teeth out... the bottom right one is so deep in the jaw and side ways... the pain is bad and the dentist says cause of how deep they are.. I would have to go under... cause of my fear of death I am petrified. I hate that feeling of being put under and never waking up... I keep having panic attacks over it :(

Hi. Is there a reason you are being required to have sedation?

Hmm... I don't know that I've ever heard of that. Are you able to get a second opinion?

I've had 2 dentists so far say the same... because they are so deep they refuse to do it x they say I have to go under... but I'm also scared of if they catch a nerve that leaves my face disfigured :(
