For many I also administer nitrous oxide\oxygen analgesia (sweet air-laughing gas). That's all that is really necessary. For some patient they want or require IV sedation and that's fine if necessary. Inhalation sedation is not used very much for extractions. Discuss with an oral surgeon. ...Read more

Depends: Where would you have surgery? I would recommend having your procedure done at the hospital, or a surgical center with anesthesiology available.
