So here's the deal. I'm having my wisdom teeth taken out next week at an oral surgery office. At first I was just going to opt for novocaine. The oral surgeon talked against it and advised me to go with the concious sedation method. Maybe it's just me but it just seems sketchy to get anesthesia in an out of hospital setting. Their procedure consists of a propofol drip, I assume titrated to effect. All you medics out there; is this safe and not risky? I know it goes on all the time without any problems. I assume a CRNA will be delivering the meds and monitoring... According to their website. Maybe I'm just anxious and wary, so any info would be great. First time getting any kind of anesthesia so I thought the resources of emtlife would provide a wealth of information.
