I Need to have two of my bottom wisdom teeth removed since if I do not they will cause me to have crooked teeth. I do not have the room for them to come in like I did for my top teeth. My bottom wisdom teeth are starting to cut though but the dentist said if I do not get them out now they will be pushing my other teeth causing issue.
My dilemma is that I do not want to go to sleep to have my teeth pulled out. I am more afraid of having someone put me to sleep then any kind of pain I may have by not going under. My general dentist that is telling to to have the wisdom teeth pulled said I would need to go to an oral surgeon. This makes me think I have to be put to sleep. If that is the case I know I will not pull the teeth even if I need to.
Will an oral surgeon pull the teeth by just numbing me up? Can that be done? My mom had a tooth pulled with just being really numb up but that was at a general dentist. What can I do?
