I am also due for 2 extractions, and am terrified (and 26 years old!). My dentist advised the medical aid won't cover G/A, and so he is only giving me local, but prescribed me some strong Valium! I hope it works! He also advised that G/A is so risky for such a small procedure, its not worth it the risk!I am told it takes 3-10minutes. Hope this helps!
