Ahhhh okay so, my dentist says I need to get my wisdom teeth removed. I can feel them coming in but they aren't causing any pain. Well he said they could damage my other teeth so I guess they need to go.
I'm not scared of the surgery itself at all. I've read the risks and such because I had to sign a form for the dentist. None of that scares me surprisingly.
I'm TERRIFIED of getting knocked out or getting laughing gas!! Seriously every time I think about them giving me laughing gas I have a panic attack. And they say you don't have to do either but they highly HIGHLY recommend it (its practically unheard of not to get it because its such a painful procedure). So I think I would rather have the laughing gas than be sedated because a. it's cheaper and b. i do not want to be completely unconscious under any circumstances except me sleeping at night haha.
The idea of being 'high' really freaks me out, because I already have derealisation and when it gets bad I have anxiety attacks and end up in the ER dying etc. So a complete loss of control of my mind like that is just so scary for me. And I've seen those viral videos of people freaking out after the dentist... if normal people freak out I can't even imagine what I will do. Part of me is afraid I'll have a reaction to it and die, part of me is afraid I'll start having a panic attack mid-operation, and part of me is afraid i'll embarrass myself somehow.
I just don't want to be high! Basically I need to be in complete control of my mind all the time, otherwise I think I'm about to go crazy and die. Has anybody else been through this? Everyone I've talked to says they don't even remember getting it done but the idea of blacking out the whole thing scares me just as much! What should I do?? Should I keep them in forever and sacrifice my teeth or should I remove them? Think of it from the wisdom teeth's perspective.. they're just growing in to help me chew.... :'-(
