| || |So at some point this year my dentist has advised before I get too old that I should have all 4 wisdom teeth removed.
I am so afraid of dentists that a general check up can have me in tears. So the thought of going and sitting in a chair to have them removed in two sessions makes me want to vomit or have a heart attack. Ridiculous I know!
Does anyone know how or if its possible for me to to arrange to have all 4 removed at the same time under a general anesthetic. I'd rather be knocked out I think.
Is this possible here? And also anyone done this and know the cost??

First, I am so sorry no one has addressed your fear. It is real and can be paralyzing. There are certainly dental practices which can offer full anesthesia, if you would prefer it. It is standard procedure in USA, though less often in Switzerland. However, you really do not need to explain yourself or feel sorry to ask for it.
I know in our practice, www.cosmodent.ch
, a team of qualified anesthesiologists come to us for such cases. The patient is not given a total narcosis which would require a ventilator, but a light anesthesia so you can still breathe on your own. We even do this for small children who need larger treatments. After the treatment, you quietly wake up and can return home the same day.
Concerning the question of whether you need to extract your wisdom teeth, or not, you should ask your dental professional, not an internet forum. If you have any doubts, ask for your x-rays and take them for a second opinion. This is perfectly okay.
Personally, I would love to see you overcome your dental fear, but it is okay to ask for anesthesia for the wisfom teeth. Afterwards, I would be most pleased to guide you through a pleasant spa like dental cleaning. After 30+ years, it is my specialty and pleasure. Dentistry should not hurt.
