    Anybody else have one?

    I posted awhile back about needed hip replacement. Well, this Thurs I have a full day of sedation dental work scheduled because I am a wuss when it comes to the dentist. Really only one major issue to take care of before surgery, but I figured that if I was going to do that, I might as well do EVERYTHING at one time. Some missing fillings, one small cavity, deep clean, and a root canal (or if it can't be saved, extraction and bone graft for future implant). Wish me luck....I am sweating about it already.

    Hip replacement on 12/18.

    Anybody done sedation for dental work? Did it make it easy? Recovery?

    I think @TX OMFS knows something about dental phobias.

    yep....reached out to his office.......they do more serious maxillo facial surgery than I need.....they could not help........in my case.........root canals and general dentistry is not what they do.

    A lot of what I need is cleaning and filling replacement one root canal.........I got blown off and referred to general dentistry.

    It wasn't TX OMFS (personally).......but I was told by someone in that office that they didn't do that kind of work. Would love to have spent my out of pocket dollars with a board member.

    My wife is a hygienist and is from a whole family of dentists. I'm trying to keep my crown as their worst patient at her office. I frigging hate it. She however is beyond good at her job. You want a general dentist and a hyena who loves scalings? Pm me.
