Every situation: Is different depending on difficulty of the extraction and the patients tolerance to pain. But i'm sure your dentist will be gentle and give you appropriate pain meds to help with any post op discomfort. Hope this helps.

Teeth extraction: It feels like a lot of pressure during the procedure and wil cause pain after the anaesthesia wears off. It is advisable to take the pain medication before the anaesthesia wears off. Hope this helps.
