    one of the other drivers said anytime you undergo Anesthesia you are required to have another medical done. is this an accurate statement. i have some bad teeth i eventually have to have dealt with an im going to tell them to knock me out, i really hate dealing with someone stabbing my gums with a needle and pulling teeth with pliers...... yuk... last time i had to have that done it was before my CDL and i had them knock me out. it was done by IV.

    No not accurate at all.

    Your teeth.. find a oral surgeon that has nitrous (laughing gas) that and Novocain is all you will need.
    I had a impacted wisdom tooth and rear molar removed with it and didn’t feel a thing... You’ll actually be high as a kite and feeling great.. Takes only seconds once the turn the gas off you’re back to normal.

    Even if you could find one that would knock you out with anesthesia it’s a risk that is not necessary. Besides that, the whole process of coming out from being knocked out is horrible..at least for me it is.

    The trick is the nitrous and it doesn’t add all that much more to the bill.

    There is no requirement to undergo new DOT medical after you have anesthesia.

    Who's gonna know? It's your business what happens inside a doctor's or dentist's office...and I would imagine medical confidentiality would prevent an employer from prying into your business...
