    Hello, my teeth are VERY crowded they are absolutely awful, by far my biggest insecurity. I never smile in photos and am always connscious about them.

    So my dentist said that he can fix them over two operations which he describes as 'complex surgery.' He said its not complex in the sense that its not dangerous but whats going to occur during the surgery is complex. I'm going to have 4 teeth extracted, two of which are baby teeth and they don't fright me. However, the other two are adult teeth which yet havent erupted, they are still under my gums. Therefore, the gum is going to be cut to remove those teeth- these are around about in the roof of my mouth.

    Not only this I will be under IV sedation- which terrifies me, Im so scared that I'll have an allergic reaction or something can go wrong.

    How do I get over this fear/ what would you do?


    Tanx for all help and advice.
