I am going to get my wisdom teeth extracted in about a week. At first I was very scared because I have TMJ issues and I am worried that my jaw would get messed up or wouldn't recover well. While researching that I came across information about the anesthesia and sedation and now I am terrified about that. All four of my teeth impacted and my mouth is very small so I don't think local anesthesia will work, plus I would rather not be fully aware of what is going on. I do not know yet if I what type of sedation/anesthesia I will have yet but I will find out tomorrow. My main fear is that I won't wake up or my breathing will stop or something else fatal. I know chances are small but I can't help but think I will fall into that small chance. I'm not really sure what to think I'm just so scared of something going bad during sedation. I don't know what the least risky route would be but I just need some reassurance or something.
