Discussions that mention valium

Dental Health board

When I had all 6 of my wisdom teeth out, I only had a local as nitrous oxide causes me to have horrible migraines (I am probably the only person in the world that has such a response, but I did 2 times and that was enough for me - I don't have a detal phobia, so I make it through just fine) and just plain don't care for IV sedation. They numbed me up so well they could have taken a hammer to my teeth and I would not have felt it. It didn't bother me at all. You WILL know very well what is going on and that can be a bit unnerving for some people, particularly if they have to break the teeth because it does sound like bone breaking (I got to hear LOTS of this ;) ) If this is going to bother you, maybe see if your OS will prescribe you a valium to take before your appointment? Many people do this.

In short, you will have no problems with only a local. Just try to relax, and maybe take some headphones and a relaxing (or your favorite) CD with you to listen to - then you won't be able to hear all that is going on quite so much.
