Safe procedure: It is normal to be apprehensive for wisdom tooth extractions. Sedation by an or al surgeon is a commonly done procedure and is safe. Make sure you have informed the oral surgeon of all you health conditions and medications. This will help insure that everything will be as safe as possible.

If you see qualified: Doctors. This is a routine procedure, and is done many times daily. Just make sure that your doctor is qualified, and certified by your state to do this.
