I really don't know where to begin.

I'm worried about my wisdom teeth being extracted (both on top - broken through already(#1 and #16, but cavities in both) and one non-wisdom (#18) tooth on the bottom. The dentist also recommended having one of my bottom widsom tooth (#32) taken out but this has caused me no problems. My other bottom wisdom tooth came in perfectly fine and crowding is not an issue.

The pain I can deal with, but I'm freaked out by the though of general anesthesia. What if the cavity in my top wisdom tooth has caused an infection and for some reason general anesthesia puts me out for good.

Normally I'm very rational but for some reason this process really, really bothers me. If anyone has advice as to how they coped with this issue, please post. Thank you very much.
