I need help to get to the dentist again after a bad experience

Im in need of dental treatment  after I had a stroke because of a bad reation to IV sedation a few years ago. Since then I’m terrified to go and get my teeth treated. I want my top set of teeth out, but obviously I need an expert opinion. I would like to know what or where should I go to start the process for the treatment? Thanks for your time and for your help.

I think that with your medical history you have some options
1. Have the teeth out under a local anaesthetic .
2 If you need to have some form of anxiety control to get them out , then a referral to a hospital dental department or dental hospital would be advised I think . You will need to get a referral through a General dental practitioner
