Wisdom teeth: There is no pain during the actual extraction because you will be numb or sedated but there will be some discomfort after. Take painkillers as prescribed by your dentist. To minimize further discomfort, use ice packs and warm compresses. Eat soft foods such as gelatin, etc. After the first day, you can rinse with warm salt water to reduce pain and swelling.
