Getting my Wisdom Teeth extracted tomorrow

Anesthesia Methods  

5 members have voted

  1. 1. Which of the following Anesthesia methods should I go with?

    • Local
    • Sedation
    • General

It's been a long time since I have ever had surgery done to any part of my body.


Tomorrow (May 27, 2015), I will have all 3 of my Wisdom Teeth removed.


I'm wondering if any of you had your wisdom teeth removed yet. And if so, I would like you guys to vote on the poll I have set up asking the question, "Which Anesthesia method should I go with?


Keep in mind, I'd rather be asleep when the surgery starts.

For me, I had local anesthesia...I would not have wanted to be asleep.  The removal was mostly painless anyway, I felt practically nothing as a tooth was removed.  The hours and day after that however...were not so pleasant.  Blood slowly went into my mouth for like 24 hours (major bleeding stopped an hour or so after the removal though).

I had a local anesthetic when I had all 4 of mine removed a few years ago and though I was fully awake and aware of what was happening to me (though I was kind of really out of it) I didn't feel a thing. I was so doped up for that entire day that I could have been punched in the face and probably barely even felt anything.

Yeah I also have local when I had all four removed. I guess I got lucky because after taking the pain meds I never really felt any pain. When I had to go under to get my adnoids in my nose removed waking up felt really bad and took a couple hours.

I had the knock-out intravenous anesthetic. I was pretty scared (then again, like I overreact a lot) because I had heard about people dying and whatnot from overdoses. But I mean it wasn't bad at all, you just fall asleep, and I dunno, like you (at least in my situation) don't bother to fight it off. Then again, they gave me a sedative, and then the anesthetic. 


And when they're done, you'll wake up, and it'll all be over ^^. Just make sure that you don't do anything crazy afterwards, because I remember waking up and texting someone (good thing my mom didn't let me send the text because it was gibberish), and then the next instant I was in the car with no recollection of getting into the elevator or leaving the office.
