I need to have my painful wisdom tooth extracted and am scared to death. I can't afford anesthesia (would be my first choice to just "sleep" though it) but can afford nitrous oxide and am told it will relax me. How do I get through the sights and sounds and apprehension of them pulling out my tooth, perhaps in pieces??? I will be flying out of state 7 days later; should I be ok by then or in your professional oppinion would you suggest I reschedule and have the tooth removed when I return? I am on Clindamycin and have a RX for Vicodin when needed. I am terrified. Thank you for your help.
