Just curious. I'm a civvy so would be a civvy dentist but what's the procedure for getting wisdom teeth out under general anaesthetic. I am a COMPLETE wimp when it comes to dentistry so having it out under local is, sadly, out of the question. The tooth itself isn't causing any trouble (it's on my lower jaw and I know those are harder to get out) but I have recurring gum infections from the flap of gum covering it. So I'd quite like to have it out if I can otherwise I'm using more than my fair share of antibiotics and to be honest it's a bit of a pain in the arrse. How do I go about getting referred to a surgeon/hospital (if that's even how it works), if not, how do I get it done privately (not my first choice as it's obviously pricier)? Any advice would be welcomed, thanks in advance.
