Scared about dental surgery

I’m 14 years old. In two days I have surgery where they are putting me out with anesthesia and taking out several teeth. they’re also pulling one through. I’m really scared. Can you tell me what it will feel like?

LeeAnn,

You don’t need to be worried. It doesn’t really feel like anything. One moment you are awake and waiting on surgery, then the next thing you know you are waking up and everything is all over with. They’ll probably give you something to relax you even before you have the anesthesia administered.

If it helps you feel better, think about how many people go through surgeries every day without any problems whatsoever. It will be easier than taking a nap.
