Does The Procedure Hurt?

This can vary from patient to patient. While it’s common to experience discomfort and swelling after the procedure, the procedure itself should not be alarmingly painful. Your doctor will numb the area of extraction. You should feel pressure or minor discomfort. If, during the procedure, you feel an overwhelming amount of pain, alert your doctor at once.

Why Can’t You Just Fix My Tooth?

In cases of advanced decay or infection, removal of the affected tooth can protect your surrounding teeth and tissues from infection. By removing the affected teeth, you can save other teeth from the same fate.

Your dentist may also find an extraction necessary if you have a tooth that’s failed to properly cut through the gums. This is called impaction, and it’s a common occurrence in the wisdom teeth.

Why Do You Need To Know My Medical History?

It’s important for your oral surgeon to know of any health conditions or medications you’re taking that could affect the surgery. Certain conditions and medications can affect things like how much you bleed or the type and amount of anesthesia needed.
