"Impacted wisdom teeth removed, extremely nervous"

About: Sunderland Royal Hospital

Today I had two lower wisdom teeth removed, to which I was extremely nervous about. I opted to go without sedation as I was just as nervous about that as I was about the procedure. The staff that carried out the procedure were absolutely amazing. They reassured me constantly, took things at my pace and helped me as much as they possibly could during the whole thing. I couldn't stop thanking them after it was over. Given the situation, it couldn't have gone any better! I would like to give my thanks once again for their help today
