Does Pulling Wisdom Teeth Hurt?
At A Better Smile Dental Centre, your gentle dentists prioritise your comfort and will ensure you are completely numb for your procedure. You may feel some pressure but should not feel any pain.
You will need to manage discomfort during the healing process. As with any surgery, some bruising, swelling and minor discomfort are typical. Over-the-counter anti-inflammatory medications or other medications recommended by your medical doctor or dentist should be taken as directed to manage discomfort.
You should also avoid smoking, drinking through a straw and extremely crunchy or hot foods for a week or two to ensure healing. Dislodging the healing tissue by smoking or eating the wrong foods can result in increased discomfort and longer healing times.
