For some reason I'm panicking of all things over having them removed. The surgery is in less than 12 hours and has been looming over me for a month. I've asked my friends questions (I didn't get much time with this dentist and it's a new dentist to me) and none seem to have any real opinion. A majority truly lean towards "it was nothing, and the next day I was back to normal."


But my brain still can't help but wander and freak out. I've not posted at all in a while because for the most part I've been able to cope with my own problems but this has just sent my anxiety through the roof.

honestly, its nothing at all to worry about. I got mine removed when I was 20 and it barely even hurt afterward...they gave me nitrous beforehand and then started the anesthesia...after that the next thing I remember is waking up like "wait, they're done already? was hours later.

then they gave me a prescription for percocet and I went home and ate was awesome. lol

When I had my root canal it was more anxiety than anything and it wasn't bad at all either. But I know it's a lot less of a procedure.

My experience was the same as ATG in his post, only not with the ice cream, haha. I was knocked unconscious with the anesthesia and it was over when I woke up in a couple hours. I cannot speak for everyone going through your procedure but after I woke up it felt like my lower lip was the size of a grapefruit, it wasn't but it felt that way. There was a little bleeding inside my mouth right afterwards but a piece of gauze fixed it. Other than that there was no pain.

Don't worry, it's just like getting a molar tooth removed. The worst part is the needle injections for the anesthesia - they feel like bee stings! lol

I just wanted to update my post and give my experience so far. Maybe I'll edit with any complications or updates in a week or so, but for now...

I got in the office and signed in. I was taken back shortly and put in a chair and hooked up to some machines to monitor vitals. My anxiety rapidly climbed and all the nurses were frowning and trying to help. I was sort of crying and shaking horribly. They hooked the IV up and almost immediately put some sort of relaxation meds or anti-anxiety in and within 30 seconds I almost felt completely worry free.

I had read another post where the poster said he blinked and the procedure was over. I said to myself, "No way it was like that." But sure enough shortly after they put the rubber piece in my mouth I blinked and I woke up in recovery. I didn't feel tired or anything, just blink and it's over.

Pain wise I am hurting. I'd say a decent toothache on all four corners of the mouth but nothing the percocet hasn't fixed. I want to say a majority of it is having to bite on the gauze (which might be irritating my teeth) and my jaw muscles from being stretched.

Thanks to all for posting. I can't tell you how many people I bugged with questions trying to calm myself.

I have a dental phobia, had to get my wisdom teeth taken out because they started hurting.

Man, whatever they gave me, I've never been that high in my life, all I could do was smile and laugh.

11/10 Would do again
