IV sedation: Discuss your options with the Oral Surgeon. For over 40 years I removed wisdom teeth, even severely impacted one with local anesthesia alone. Often used Nitrous Oxide/Oxygen analgesia (Sweet air or laughing gas) in addition to local injections. However, that's not for everyone as some patients request or require IV sedation (or oral sedation).
