Question:
I have a bad wisdom tooth and have seen my local dentist...he has told me I have to be refered to the sedation clinic in Bristol. So off I went.

When I got there I saw people walk in to the dentist's room quite normally but they walked out all over the place. I didn't like the look of it. Then a couple came in and the woman was called in. All of a sudden a I heard a couple of load screams.

That was it - my palms started to sweat, my pulse went up and I left the surgery. Still with my bad wisdom tooth. While I was there the dentist also told me that both lowers had to come out and then explained to me that both uppers had to come out as well. That sounds like a lot of work in one sitting.

Question: If I get sedated will I know what's going on and will I feel the pain? I have an awful thought of being not able to move or talk but feeling and watching every thing that's going on. Please reply soon. ...Steve in Somerset, England

Answer:
Steve, you may not want to sit in a waiting room again, but sedation/i.v dentistry is pretty safe. The i.v. sedation will relieve your anxiety to the point that you won't know you had it done. I would recommend a trained oral surgeon for this procedure. You should have an easy appointment as long as you go to a highly trained professional.
