  • I’m getting anesthesia for my wisdom teeth surgery (all 4) is this happy gas? I really dont want happy gas can I request something else?

    Best answer: Feel free to ask questions of your surgeon. Today, most people get an IV and are not given nitrous oxide. You will be out cold, not just loopy like when getting a filling at the dentist. You will also get a local anesthetic, like novocaine, so your mouth will remain numb after the general anesthetic is gone.

    I don't know where to start, Im a 24 old male just moved out a few months ago. i've been doing all right on my own but ive always had really bad teeth. i had one form an abcess about 2 months ago, i avoided it for about a week with just using clove oil and tea bags too drain i, i went to the dentist and they confirmed that i had gingivitis, they mapped out a dental plan for me at 4500(alot of money for me) they ended up going my some antibiotics and the finacial aids number, i went home called financial aid which pretty quickly ended with them decling me, i tried my natural remedies for about 2 weeks until i broke and went to an oral surgeon one morning, they pulled out 2 of my teeth and charged me 800 dollars, they gave me a script off hydros and some antibotics, all was well for about 2 weeks until symptons started coming back.I have been unsure of what to do or where to go seeing as i have nobody to go too for help and no money for dentist. i started cutting my gums with a razer to release the pressure of the gums when its too much. I have also been using tea bags to help drain it. i thought i had control of it, today i realized it has spread to the back of my head right by the ear, there is a bump on the back top of head

    The gums by the very last bottom tooth in the right side of my mouth has become swollen just enough to get in the way when I bite down, causing pain. I've tried eating less and took some pain medicine, but they are still a little swollen with pain and I still can't bite down all the way on food to actually chew correctly. What can I do before going to the dentist, as I am not available to go anytime soon.

    I went to the dentist and noticed the dentist using the gloves from the multi glove box on the wall. These gloves was not individually wrapped nor were they sterile wrapped as I thought that they should be considering that she was putting her hands in my mouth. The dental assistant said that she has been doing this job for over 20 plus years and to my knowledge I'm thinking that she's been doing this wrong for over 20 plus years.
