Yeah getting knocked out for it is the way to go. Just follow the directions for keeping the area clean afterward. NO drinking from straws or such cause then you get dry sockets and thats when the trouble comes. Instead of healing in like four days, you go through a couple weeks of pain. When I did mine, they said clean twice a day, I was cleaning every hour and it worked out great. Oh yeah make sure you have someone get you home, cause that gas that knocks you out lasts a while!
