I’ve not been to a dentist for 6 years. The last one i saw could not work on me because i was shaking so much and physically could not let him near me.
I’ve been living with a painful upper wisdom tooth since 2008. Recently the pain has gone to a whole new level so unfortunately a visit is inevitable but I’m putting it off as long as i can. I need the tooth extracted; part already broke off a year ago. It has a root canal which i thought removed the nerves but it’s extremely painful plus the gum around it is inflamed on a regular basis.
I believe the only way i can have this tooth extracted is under GA or the conscious (twilight) sedation widely used in US and SA.
I had a GA in November for an operation so am worried about having another so soon. Can conscious sedation be done at the office as opposed to hospital? What roughly would the cost be? (I don’t want X rays, i just want the tooth out)
I don’t want to book a consult unless i know i can afford the treatment.
Thanks in advance
