Got to have a tooth extracted on Thursday, molar on the upper left side. Not the dentist extraction, an oral surgeon extraction. I had planned on going with a local anesthetic, but I was talking to a friend over the weekend, and he was relaying the experience of being awake while they cut a tooth out of your head, and it has me thinking that perhaps I'd rather be asleep. I guess the sounds, the smells, the taste of blood and the fact that they are literally yanking this thing out of your head is none too pleasant.
Anyone had this done before? Any thoughts? I know I won't feel any pain one way or the other, but that sounds like about zero fun. For those of you that have had a tooth extracted using a local anesthetic only, would you do it again if you had the option of being put under?
