Don't worry, you'll be fine!! Wisdons are a bit trickier to remove because they are so far back but I'm sure the surgeon removing them will have done that procedure 1000s of times! Good luck!

are you getting the thing where they put you to sleep? thats what i had, and it was all over really quickly
Not sure if id want to do it while awake, but have had a tooth extracted while awake, and again, it happens pretty quickly, so not as bad as i thought

Had one done about three years ago while awake and quite honestly, the recovery was worse than the procedure. You'll feel like crap for a day or two afterwards, but the procedure shouldn't be too bad. I've got to have another one out on the 27th and I'm dreading the part after the visit to the dentist.

My dad took 4 of mine out when I got braces 7 years ago (non wisdom)

I remember it to be quite painless.
He gave me four local anesthesia injections in the four corners of my mouth to numb.
10 minutes later he took all four out in the space of about 10 mins from what I remember.
There was no pain, just a bit of pressure when they were pulled out.

It was quite funny after as I couldn't help drooling a little afterwards as my gums and lips were numb and a little uncontrollable.

Its a standard procedure Im sure and you'll be fine.
Although my dad has had about 25 years experience :whistling:

I am sure everything will be fine.

However, I do understand your fear. I had a bad experience with a filling several months ago. I have a huge fear of needles and had to have an injection and unfortunately had a panic attack because of it - the dentist was a complete cow about it despite me explaining beforehand about my phobia. She was also really rough and my hatred of the dentist has developed into a full blown fear. I completely refuse to go for anything other than checkups now which I know is stupid but just going to the dentist makes me feel sick. If I ever needed something done I would have to be knocked out, although that brings us back to the needle phobia!

As you can see, I am a huge wimp. If it helps, a work colleagues son had the same procedure you are going to have (surgical removal) and apparently he was absolutely fine said there was no pain just felt pressure.....

This is a only done in this area in hospital these days- as a day procedure which I think is a good idea. Had my 4 out in hospital under anaesthetic and was fine. The speed at which the holes close over is amazing! Three days later and you forget the whole thing.
