Own sedation for dental work
15 replies 665 views
I've to have a wisdom tooth removed as it is growing sideways. The NHS waiting list isn't even open due to covid, and I'm getting some pain, so I'm having it done privately. Thing is, it will cost an extra £180 or so to be sedated, which I can't really afford right now. I've had a wisdom tooth ripped out without sedation before, and it wasn't too horrific, but that wasn't a tricky sideways wonky one.
Now, I have prescribed sedatives for anxiety, would it be really so terrible if I gobbled one or even a half before the extraction (and got a friend to drive me home, obvs)? Anyone done this and either had success or got intro trouble?
