Varies: The use of general anesthesia will depend on your surgeon. Many times conscious sedation will cross over into general anesthesia for brief periods due to varied reactions from each patient. However, most oral surgeons can accomplish successful removal without needing full general anesthesia. Make sure to ask your surgeon about what he will use on you and how it will affect you.See 4 more doctor answers

I was wondering if it was possible to go under full general anesthesia just to get your wisdom teeth pulled?
Of course!: The levels of sedation and anesthesia is something that can be discussed between you and your oral and maxillofacial surgeon. Different areas of the country have different regulations regarding levels of sedation that can be performed in an office vs hospital setting.
Personal preference: For most people, being sedated for wisdom tooth removal is the best way to get the teeth out due to not knowing what is going on during the procedure. Obviously, a lot of patients do not want to be sedated and do just fine. Personal preference rules here.See 5 more doctor answers
Bruh I just smoked weed today like a few hits today from two spliffs and im getting my 4 wisdom teeth pulled out under general anesthesia. I'm worried?
Not during.: When performed by an experienced dentist, the discomfort and post operative pain will be minimal, even with difficult wisdom teeth extractions. Your best bet is to see an oral surgeon, but there are many general dentists who are more than capable of performing wisdom teeth extractions.See 1 more doctor answer
A little sore: You may feel sore with a possibility of slight swelling, but this would be temporary and be controlled by medication.See 1 more doctor answer
Varies: Post operative pain is generally related to the trauma incurred during the procedure. The trauma is related to the preoperative condition of the surgical site. If a wisdom tooth is impacted by soft tissue less trauma occurs than if it is impacted in bone. If the tooth is erupted there is even less trauma. The best information can be gained by discussing your case with your oral surgeon.See 2 more doctor answers
No: If you have space for your wisdom teeth to erupt into a functional position and they are not causing or contributing to a periodontal problem or problems with adjacent structures, you do not have to have them removed. Your age and position of any impacted wisdom teeth may also be a factor in deciding if you should or should not have wisdom teeth removed. Your dentist can advise you.See 2 more doctor answers
It depends: It mainly depends on the difficulty of your teeth and who is removing them for you. An oral ; maxillofacial surgeon or experienced general dentist should handle things for you easily. You will have some pain afterwards but this should be managed easily with a prescription. You will have some bleeding for a few hours, some swelling for a few days, so take it easy for the first couple of days.See 1 more doctor answer
For some, yes.....: Each case is different. It depends upon the difficulty of the extraction, how cooperative you are as a patient & both you and your surgeon’s preferences. I have been removing impacted teeth for over 40 years & most patients are fine with local anesthesia (with or without "sweet air") alone. A few feel that they need IV sedation with an oral surgeon & for them, it is best. Discuss it with os.See 2 more doctor answers
