What can I expect?
Since it is impossible to remove the teeth without feeling pain, your dentist will give you a local anesthetic to numb the area where the tooth will be removed. A stronger anesthetic can be used if the patient has a low tolerance for pain or if several teeth need to be removed. Additionally, some people may opt to have general anesthesia. This prevents pain in the whole body and during the procedure, you will be sleeping the whole time.
When the area is numb enough, the dentist will proceed to remove the teeth. Stitches may be necessary in some cases to help your gums heal. Additionally, the removed teeth may be replaced with implants, dentures or a bridge.
Lastly, your dentist will prescribe you painkillers and antibiotics.
