Extractions-I am terrified!!

I am terrified for my first ever 2 extractions (I am 26yrs old). My dentist won't give me anything but Local, and has advised I take Valium before the procedure! Whomever has had extractions before, in the chair, please put my mind at rest! I am having sleepless nights over this!

Do not worry, the thouht of having the teeth removed is definitely worse than the procedure itself. You will hardly feel much. Good luck

hey there
I had al four my wisdom teeth extracted in the last month, and I can promise you I didnt feel any pain, all that you feel is some pressure. Please do not worry, you will be fine, I am fine, and very happy that my teeth are out of the way now. Please do sleep at night, you will survive, I promise!!
good luck :)
