It depends on many factors: medical issues, cost, insurance coverage, patient compliance, patient apprehension, if the wisdom teeth are impacted, if the wisdom teeth are infected etc. The best doctor to talk to is an oral surgeon who sedate and removes wisdom teeth everyday. Usually sedation is recommended to patients to have their wisdom teeth removed.
Talk to Dentist. Most teeth extractions can be done under local anesthesia with a cooperative patient. If there are especially impacted teeth then some sedation might be indicated.
