GA won't be life threatening to you at all if you are physically fit. Millions of patients get GA everyday.
But consider this. Tomorrow if you will need a root canal, or a filling or gum treatment, will you go for GA for that too?
Isn't it easier and smarter to overcome your fear of injections once and for all? There are safe sedative drugs your dentist can prescribe to you to overcome your phobia before injection.
Unless your mouth opening is less or your wisdom teeth are very badly impacted in your jaws, I would advise you to go for local anesthesia.
