"Sedation You should note that you will be under dental sedation (often via a local anesthetic) whenever you have a wisdom tooth removed, so it’s best to prepare for it, preferably by bringing along someone who can drive you home after the procedure. The sedative serves to help you relax so you aren’t tense or anxious throughout the treatment, which could complicate matters. If you’re planning on undergoing a dental treatment, such as a wisdom tooth extraction, make it a point to ask your dentist as many questions about what to expect. Ask for some recovery tips, as well. The same goes when you need to see an emergency dentist in Pickering, like those at the Brockington Dental Centre for a chipped tooth or something similar."
