Hello! Well I made a mistake. I had planned on having all four of my wisdom teeth removed back in June. Then the one that was hurting stopped. I let some of my family talk me out of the procedure because they said if there is nothing to fix then why let someone cut on you. Well, now, here I am, 4 months later, I've got the worst toothache I've ever had, and the oral surgeon is out on vacation for all of this week and 1/2 of next week. I went to my regular dentist yesterday, got my teeth cleaned, he rinsed the wisdom tooth that is killing me, and give me an antibiotic (pennicillan) and a pain killer, which I just refuse to take unless I'm just practically dying in pain. Anyways, I've got an appointment for a another consultation on Thursday the 20th with the surgeon. I'd really appreciate all your input on what to expect. I do know that he'll do the procedure at the hospital with me put to sleep. He told me that back in June because he said I was too full of anxiety to do it in his office. I tried to explain that anxiety wasn't the problem, I was just scared and he wasn't answering my questions to my satisfaction. So, all information, input, experiences, and advice is greatly appreciated. And YES, the only thing I am allergic to is a NEEDLE, so YES I am scared of the IV more than anything. My wife pokes fun at me over this.
