I have two options:
Option 1: I get put under and don't experience any sensation whatsoever during the procedure. Insurance will not cover anesthesia so this will be an out-of-pocket expense, and several hundred dollars.
Option 2: I get local anesthetic and stay awake for the procedure. This is a much cheaper procedure, but I will have to hold my head at an awkward angle and I'm not sure how I feel about staying awake.
Money is kind of tight; we are trying really hard to put money back into savings after dumping a ton of it into my braces.
What should I do?
