I haven't had teeth out but have had sedation for teeth cleaning and fillings and colonoscopy/endoscopy. You'll be fine. Just make sure they know you're diabetic and they will watch your sugars. Don't take aspirin or any other medicines which thin your blood as these will stop the clots forming

Thank you . They no I'm diabetic as I have to stay in the night before so I don't eat or drink. Are you completely out?

I had 13 teeth out last month and got put to sleep you'll be fine just make sure your bloods are alright and when you come back round check them as mine dropped but I think that was just a bit a pain which is expected but my mouth only bled for like half hour cause of how many I had out you should be fine and even though they normally say us diabetic take awhile to heal my gums are fine already just shrinking still

And yes they put a tube down you throat but you won't know a thing they get you comfy then it's good night and next thing you know everything has been done and tube is out you wouldn't even know you had done down there dw it's normal to be worried I was so bad but trust me it was alright x

Don't be scared , one your asleep you won't feel anything, I needed all. 18 of my teeth to be taken out and I too was put asleep, so you will be asleep, they turn off the gas just when they are finished and they will take you to recovery and you will wake up to where u had teeth but now no more, hope that helps.

I had all four of my wisdom teeth removed when I was 21. I had lots of bleeding swelling. I got an infection and it made me really sick so I was admitted into ICU. I'm also type 1.
