So, tomorrow morning, I am booked in for 4 extractions and top denture fitted.
I am having sedation.
I have had sedation before, but I'm still petrified of being aware. I've had 1 experience where I was fully aware and 2 not being aware.
Two of my teeth are cracked and weak, one is broken to the gum so now I'm also panicking about this.
I feel sick with fear 😱

Hi Bea :welcome:,

I will keep my fingers crossed for you. If you have managed to get this far, you will do greately tomorrow. It might be a good idea to talk about your fears with your sedationist and explain to him/her how petrified you are of being aware. He/she might be able to explain to you which steps they will take to make sure you're fine and also pay extra attention for you to get sedated properly. Teeth broken on the gum line are actually easier to get removed so do not worry about this too much (easier said than done, I know). Again, talking to your dentist might help here.

Sending you good vibes and wishes, may you find some rest tonight and may your dental team be able to put you at ease and make the treatment easier for you.

All the best wishes and let us know how you got on!

Well, I'm back.
I explained my fears and was assured.
The sedation didn't really work and I was aware of the needles in my mouth, I felt them go in.
I felt them take teeth out.
However there was no pain.
TBH I think she started too early.
