Are dental extractions painful?

At Wedington Family Dental, we want all of our patients to have the most comfortable treatments possible. Before your treatment begins, local anesthetic will be used to numb the nerves in your teeth and gums to reduce or eliminate pain during the procedure. We will also provide you with detailed aftercare instructions for managing any discomfort that may arise post-treatment. If you have any questions or concerns for our team before or after your dental extraction, please let us know, and we’ll be happy to assist you.

Can I go back to school or work after a dental extraction?

Dental extractions are considered surgical procedures, and patients should always plan to go straight home post-treatment. The length of your recovery time will depend on how quickly you tend to recover from surgeries, as well as how many teeth are being extracted. Once you return to your normal routine, you may still find it necessary to stick to eating softer foods for a few extra days. Our team can assess your treatment plan and provide you with an estimate for how long your recovery will be before your procedure takes place.
