Is Wisdom Tooth Extraction Painful?
No. Your oral surgeon will numb the area before beginning, and will perform the extraction while you are under an appropriate anesthesia (i.e., sedation or “asleep”). This maximizes patient comfort. It is not uncommon for patients to feel as if no time has past from the beginning to the end of the procedure. Afterwards, some patients may experience mild discomfort, typically for only two or three days. Your surgeon may prescribe medication to manage any pain.
