Ever been scared out of your wits when it comes to tooth extraction? You’re not alone! The idea of a tooth being pulled is frightening, but the truth is that it hurts much less than you imagine – provided you work with an experienced dentist at Dental Beauty who understands the issues involved and can ensure a seamless tooth extraction process.
Wisdom Teeth Removal
People may need their wisdom teeth removed for several reasons. They could be pushing up against other teeth or causing your mouth to pain. There may also be infected wisdom teeth that you are unaware of in your mouth. In any of these instances, it may be smarter to get your wisdom teeth removed.
Your first consultation at Dental Beauty will start with a detailed discussion of your dental history, so we can evaluate your situation and determine your general oral health. We will assess the condition of your wisdom teeth and take any necessary x-rays to establish the best course of action moving forward.
Once wisdom teeth removal is established, we book you in for an appointment convenient for you and make a few suggestions to help you get ready. For example, you may need to avoid eating or drinking anything for a few hours before surgery. You may also need to prepare for over-the-counter pain medication and cold packs.
Once you’re at the clinic, our dentist will typically give you a local anesthetic, which works to numb the area around the tooth so you remain comfortable during the wisdom teeth removal surgery — a common in-chair procedure we’ve done countless times.
Is Wisdom Tooth Extraction Painful?
You are usually awake during the procedure and may feel a little pressure while the tooth is being removed, but it is unlikely to cause you a lot of pain, thanks to a local anesthetic.
After the anesthetic wears off, you may experience some discomfort, which is why we will offer you some pain relief solutions to help you tide over the next few days. But this is short-lasting, and you will be back to normal quickly. You may be advised to use a cold pack to reduce the swelling inside your mouth.
To minimize your pain and any complications, it is crucial to work with a dentist experienced at tooth extraction to ensure nothing goes wrong during the procedure. Experience matters when it’s your related to your teeth, so don’t take it lightly!
