Needle Phobia: I am going to get my wisdom teeth removed.
I was wondering if I get I get the needles in the mouth and laughing gas will I have to have an IV in my arm when I have laughing gas?
I am so scared of needles, so if I do, is there any way I can get around this? ...Visitor from MI
It is very common to be apprehensive about the unknown.
Having your wisdom teeth out will be so much easier if the Oral Surgeon starts your IV to give you the relaxing medicine before numbing your teeth. You will be deeply sedated and will not even feel or remember getting numb or having your wisdom teeth out.
In fact, the best thing is to have the Nitrous Oxide (laughing gas) on before your IV is started. This will help keep you more relaxed while the doctor starts your IV.
