I had them out when I was 18. All 4 at once in the dentist's office, just regular freezing. Believe me, I am a dental phobe, beyond the normal fear of dental work. I wanted to be put under, but my dentist explained the risks vs the benefits, and I ended up opting for just sitting in the chair. It was a total breeze! Mind you, they were not impacted. They were taken out because there would not have been enough room. My teeth were always a bit squished as it was.
For me, the wisdom teeth removal was wayyyyy easier than just a "regular" filling. I get totally freaked during fillings and have to have nitrous oxide and 3 x the freezing.
