Do we need general anesthesia to get third molar pulled out?


An American friend told me she got her lower ( mandibular) third molar ( wisdom tooth) removed under general anesthesia. I was under impression that it is routine OPD procedure. So do we really need to be under general anesthesia to get third molar removed?
