Does wisdom tooth removal have pain?

You will experience no pain during the procedure of wisdom tooth removal; This is because the area is numbed before the procedure via anesthesia, and thus pain is not something that you need to be worried about.

Wisdom teeth removal pain killer

Before the procedure, the area is numbed using a local anesthetic. Three types of anesthesia can be used during this extraction process.

Local anesthesia:

in this case, your mouth is numbed using a local anesthetic like lidocaine or novocaine. Sometimes, you might be asked to break nitrous oxide so that you relax a bit and doze off during surgery. The effect would wear off soon after.

Intravenous sedation:

in this case, drugs are given via a vein in your arm, which makes you drowsy while at the same time numbing your mouth. This ensures that you sleep throughout the procedure and feel minimal pain.

General anesthesia:

This is usually opted for when you have multiple wisdom teeth that have to be removed. If you are given general anesthesia, you sleep throughout the procedure and would not wake up around one hour or more after the procedure. In this case, your dentist will ask you to stop eating by midnight a day before the procedure.

How long does a wisdom tooth extraction take?

The extraction process is not really long if everything goes well and usually gets done in about 20 minutes or less. The procedure might take longer if there are any complications.

The dentist might have to cut your gums or bones for getting the teeth out. In this case, the wounds have to be stitched so that quick healing can occur. The stitches will dissolve after a few days. It is also possible that your mouth is stuffed with gauze pads to soak up some blood.

How long does the pain last after wisdom teeth removal?

The healing process of wisdom teeth extraction can be broken into various stages. In the first 24 hours, blood clots form. The swelling of mouth and cheeks improve in the next 2 to 3 days. If stitches have been applied, they might be removed by the 7th day. In ten days, jaw stiffness and soreness improves, and any mild bruising on the face should heal in about two weeks.

The recovery time differs in everyone, but no complications occur, you might not experience much pain beyond the first day after the procedure. However, some minor discomfort might persist for some time.
