I am getting my wisdom teeth removed on the 20th of this month (5 days from now), and I am TERRIFIED. All of my wisdom teeth are pretty severely impacted and the bottom ones are covered a lot by my jaw bone and also right against the nerves. I'm 27 now, so I'm at a higher risk which makes me worry more. On top of that, back when I was a teen I had teeth pulled and I stopped breathing and passed out almost immediately from the nitrous. After I woke up they only used local injections the rest of the procedure. When I told that to the surgeon that will be doing my wisdom tooth removal he said he thought "something else was going on there" and said he still planned on using nitrous in combination with IV sedation during my surgery. Assuming all goes well, after this is over I will also have to get multiple root canals. I don't want to die from such routine procedures, and I can't stop worrying about it.
