I'm not really sure what the purpose of me making this thread is, other than wanting to get something off my chest here. I have a pretty severe phobia of dentists and I need to be sedated to have dental work done. Last time this happened was about 5 years ago and they used IV sedation and it worked great. I talked to a dentist and he wont give me IV sedation at the health centre because of my weight and insists that I would have to go to the hospital and have an anaethetist present incase of breathing problems. They are willing to give me gas and air at the health centre though. It's scary being told I have to change my routine regarding something I'm already super anxious about. I either have to chose to go to the hospital or chose a sedation method I've never had before. I chose to try the gas and air. ...this is the first time I've ever had somebody tell me they have to make special adjustments because of my weight. And honestly, it stings more than I thought it would. I don't really understand why it bothers me (I was expecting them to say that) but somehow it does.
