Sedation : You will have anesthetic so you will not feel pain. If you are concerned about feeling anything talk to your dentist about sedation during the extraction.

Some teeth can be very difficult - If you are worried see an Oral Sugeon They generally can sedate you.

It could: Pain perception and how we respond and react to it differs from person to person. When your tooth or mouth is numb, you can still feel the sensation of pressure. If a sharp instrument is applied to the numb area, you should not be able to feel a sharp sensation, only pressure. Some patients may associate the pressure used to remove a tooth as pain even though the area is numb.

Extraction hurt?: When you have a tooth extracted under local anesthetic the pain receptors should be totally numb from the anesthetic so as not to experience any pain. This method will however not take away the sensation of pressure, or your own anxiety, just reassure yourself, and the dr will too, that you will feel no pain, and if necessary, you may want to have the dr prescribe you something for anxiety if need.

Residual Root: Better to remove any remaining roots, especially if exposed, sometimes they can become a nidus for infections.
