OP here. I was awake for about 2 minutes before they knocked me out again. My tooth actually broke on the way out so I heard the dentist debate with his staff whether or not he should just leave the root in. The dentist is a cool guy and even offered to buy me lunch sometime.

Same thing happened to me. The feeling of having your tooth ripped out and you can't do anything but lay there paralyzed is absolutely horrible. I had nightmares for days.
Some people have a higher tolerance for anesthetics. Sorry about that OP, I had it happen during surgery too.
This has happened to me during a cholecystectomy. I later found out that red heads have a gene mutation that makes us less affected by anesthetics and pain medicine. I suggest telling any doctor from here on out that you've woken up before, just to avoid it in the future, OP.
Hopefully they're nice enough to make the surgery free and supply all the necessary pain meds for the additional pain they caused you.
