Having my wisdom teeth removed and im on suboxone

Im on suboxone and I take 3 quarters a day of the tablets, im getting all four of my wisdom teeth removed and will be sedated,they are doing a IV and local anesthesia. I do not want to tell the surgeon because they will look at me differently. What should i do taper myself to a quarter a day and then not do any the day before and of the surgery? What should i do and will i be ok if i do that?

You will be fine if they do not use any narcotic such as fentanyl and do not take any Vicodin or other such prescription from them. Versed and Propofol should work just fine for you. Suboxone will help you with pain after surgery, just take smaller doses more often.

See im just so nervous that they are going to give that to me. Would i die or just withdrawl if they were to give me fentanyl? So nervous thinking maybe i should just stay awake during it.

What if they give me a benzo with it? Which im sure they are going to do in the IV. How long does it take to get the suboxone out of my system so it wont effect thw fentanyl or benzo? Like today I did only a small half and my appt is next friday.
