What anesthesia is used for wisdom teeth removal?

General or local -- Depending on your medical status and your dentist's practice.
Local Anesthesia. The utilization of sedation (oral, nitrous oxide/oxygen, intravenous conscious sedation, or general anesthesia) may depend upon your expectations, anxiety level, physical status, and options offered by your dentist or surgeon. Local anesthesia (injections in the mouth) will be used regardless of whether or not you are sedated.
