According to dental care experts Candlewood Dental Centre, many people don’t like going to a dentist in case they have to have a tooth out. The best way to avoid the need for an extraction is to go regularly so your teeth are kept in good health. Extractions don’t usually take very long and you won’t feel much pain at all. What is usually felt is the pressure as the tooth is pulled out and this doesn’t even hurt.
You’ll need to have an injection to numb the site, such as the gum surrounding soon to be removed wisdom teeth, but once the first one is done it is unlikely you’ll feel any more that are needed. As soon as the site is completely numb, the tooth will be extracted, usually in a very short time if there are no problems with it. You’ll have a wad of gauze placed into the cavity to bite on and help stop the bleeding. Then you’ll be informed of aftercare procedures to follow.
