Jackie in NE Posted February 7, 2012 Share Posted February 7, 2012 (edited) Just back from the oral surgeon, and he wants to give my dd, age 17, general anesthesia when he removes her wisdom teeth. There are no difficult aspects to the surgery.... in fact, three of the teeth are already starting to come through the gums. Besides the fact that the surgeon "just prefers it that way", is there any reason for general anesthesia? I would rather do it with locals (that's how I did it, with no complications), rather than stand the risks associated with general anesthesia. Comments? Words of Wisdom? Answers? I am :bigear: ETA: My dd is asthmatic. Edited February 7, 2012 by Jackie in NE Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
