    DEFINITELY get the gas.

    Have someone pick you up.

    And don't ask them next time you go back what you said/did between the time you wake up and when you left.

    ;D ;D ;D

    In all seriousness though, I had two done years ago and I did not use the gas. I had cavities which hurt worse. No big deal. But then again, I've had teeth pulled while not under gas too. That was unpleasant. Dentist also fucked up my jaw doing it.

    If they'll give you gas, by all means take it. But if not, it ain't that bad. The shots will numb you enough that it won't hurt terribly until after everything wears off. Then, take the drugs they give you as much as you need them. Don't hesitate to medicate yourself. In a day or two you'll be fine.

    Good fucking luck.
  11. I agree with most on here, I really felt like I was just getting a cavity filled, and the pain was a little worse after the medication wore off, but once I started the meds, it was no big deal. Now, wisdom teeth on the other hand . . .

    It's not brain surgery.
