Difficult: There are always risks and benefits with anesthesia and dental procedures. The risk of infection, allergic reaction, or negative effects on blood pressure or the brain do occur. Talk with your dentist and see what the safest option might be.

Extremely: The general anesthesia skills required are part of every oral surgeon specialist's training and experience. Be absolutely fully forthcoming with your answers during your pre-surgical work-up, and you should have no problems. If you have concerns, discuss them with your specialist before the day of surgery.
