had some broken teeth removed, now i just have to keep my mind active to stay awake. never had IV anesthesia before.

I kind of remember feeling groggy when they put the IV in, then a little stronger, and then............ i wake up, and am being lead to the recovery room. my eyes still feel heavy, even now.

i do, but i have very weak enamel, so i have always had problems. I even use mouthwash twice a day.
But i still get bad spots. then i was quite a while without dental insurance, so the bad spots got really bad.

You could have saved money and used a CNC machine on them.

No technical PMs.
The last thing you did is where you should start looking.

they were surgically extracted. without the IV anesthesia, i don't think i would have handled it well. though i wish i had better tooth enamel, cause that was about $1200, and now i have to save more for a denture plate, top and bottom.  :o

I had this very recently.

Much different to when i was young.
Then it took me over a day to recover with no water for 8 hours.And a thumping headache.
This time i was wide awake and drinking a cup of tea within 1/2 hour.

Did they say what you received.

i received several bleeding holes and stitches in my gums ;)

But other than that, they may have stated it in the video after, while i was in the recovery room. but i don't remember any of that. fortunately the post-op paper tells me what i can and can't have/do. i think the video was mainly just to get you to focus on something to help the mystery drug wear off.

No video.
Pamphlet beforehand saying no driving or signing legal documents for two days.
Others were allowed home an hour later provided they were accompanied by a competent adult.
Previous experiences were sometimes similar to yours.
I felt fine within 1/2 hour , My biggest fear was the anesthesia having had bad experiences before.

i was allowed home, but i had to have someone there with me all day to monitor me. obviously i couldn't drive (heck, walking was interesting for a while).
