| | Wisdom Tooth Extraction
I have been dealing with my bottom wisdom teeth for 2-3 years now and I'm 17.
Recently, my lower left molar popped through just a bit, one tiny corner of it. But now the gum surrounding it is swollen beyond belief. Dentist is putting my on antibiotics, and I will be going in for the extraction after I'm through with the antibiotics.
I have high level anxiety and panic. If I don't take my Clonazepam, my b/p goes up really high, I panic, shake, twitch, etc.
+Needless to say I am so scared to be 'put under' or put to sleep. I am afraid I'll wake up in the middle of it, or won't wake up at all.
I wanted to know, since I am on 1mg Clonazepam per day if I could take my clonazepam (as usual) the day I go in for my procedure? Will it mess anything up with the anesthesia? I really want input on this.
If you can help me, give me some tips... I'd like to know what to do after the procedure. I know not to use a straw, and to not lay flat. Any remedies for pain, bleeding, swelling, or any other problems - please include them.
Thank you so much.
