Question I'm getting my wisdom teeth out soon, what should I know?

How bad does it hurt? Do they give shots or put in an IV? Anything about having wisdom teeth out would be helpful, thanks!

Are you going to have General anaesthetic? Or is it in the dentist's chair? I had mine out in hospital under anaesthetic. That was OK, but very swollen for a few days. My son had his out in the chair, he was given valium and something else, and his wife had to drive him home. He was OK too. It can ache a fair bit, but nothing that ordinary OTC painkillers won't fix.

Are they in? If so, it's just like having any tooth pulled. I had all four pulled with just novacaine. If they haven't come thru yet, then they'll sedate you as they have to cut to get them out.
