Any input would be appreciated. I'm 24 and I have never had any dental work. Not even a cavity. I have had panic attacks since I was 7 all related to my tongue being numb. My dentist tried to put a numbing gel on my gums once for a deep cleaning and I immediately made him rinse it off and begun having a panic attack. Tomorrow I'm getting my wisdom teeth out and I'm dreading waking up and feeling the numb sensation. I will be put under iv sedation. I have heard from different people different things. Some say you don't care about anything when you wake up and others say they came around quickly. I'm terrified of waking up and feeling that out of control feeling. I've searched and searched and I can't find any information on this. How do I cope upon waking? I know about hot water bottles and how they can help speed it along. Also he is giving me Valium. Is it better than xanax? HELP!!
