You're not going to have any x-rays on Monday, are you? If not, I guess the only thing I'd worry about is the type of painkillers they put you on. The general shouldn't make any difference so far as implantation is concerned, I wouldn't think.
I sympathize with you though -- I had three out this summer, after putting it off for ten freakin' years (largely because I was chicken at first and then pregnant/nursing for a good few years after). We took the month off of TTC because I would have been about 2 weeks along and I just wanted to be extra careful.
Oh yeah, and ladies. Seriously. Listen to freezehead. Get the dental work done NOW. When the blood flow increases and your gums swell, all those things you've been ignoring for years start to haunt you.
