Can getting a tooth pulled hurt?

Can getting a tooth pulled hurt?

Depends on person: If you do it under local anesthesia you will feel pressure. If you are very anxious, you may think it is pain. If you are a good patient at the dentist, it hopefully will be a non event.

Can it hurt having a tooth pulled out?

Can it hurt having a tooth pulled out?

Usually no: An extraction of a tooth is usually pain free, unless there is an infection in the area that would affect the local anesthesia from blocking all painful stimuli. You might feel pressure when the tooth comes out, but there should be no pain.

Curious as to how much does the injection hurt for getting a tooth pulled on a scale of 1-10! help!?

Curious as to how much does the injection hurt for getting a tooth pulled on a scale of 1-10! help!?

Varies: Everyone's experience is different. A lot of it depends on your expectations. I can use a spider web thin needle on a person with a tongue stud and you would think I harpooned them. The very same thing on a 6 year old and they don't know I did anything. Consider getting a sedative prescribed for your appointment.

I had one of my bottom lower tooth pulled two days ago and it still very painful. Is this normal and how much longer will it hurt?

I had one of my bottom lower tooth pulled two days ago and it still very painful. Is this normal and how much longer will it hurt?

Depends: If the tooth was impacted and required an incision and bone removal the pain may take up to a week to resolve entirely. This also depends on the doctor and his skill level. If the pain gets worse at the 3-5 day point and radiates, you may have a dry socket. I usually give my patients pain meds and steroids. The steroids keep the pain to a minimum by decreasing the initial inflammation.

I just got my tooth pulled. Today is day two and the site is all white and it hurts worse today than the first day. Is this normal?

I just got my tooth pulled. Today is day two and the site is all white and it hurts worse today than the first day. Is this normal?

Possibly: If it were a wisdom tooth or difficult extraction, having post-operative pain is somewhat normal and the dentist may have prescribed pain medication. If it was a "simple" extraction or if you are a smoker or drank from a straw, you may have a problem/dry socket. Contact your dentist as they may need to see you.

I had a small cavity then slowly my tooth started chipping. Now there is a hole in it. It doesn't hurt will I need it filled or pulled?

I had a small cavity then slowly my tooth started chipping. Now there is a hole in it. It doesn't hurt will I need it filled or pulled?

Depends: Once decay has worked through the enamel (outer layer) and into the dentin (softer layer), the decay can spread through it very rapidly. Depending upon how much decay is in the dentin and its proximity to the nerve chamber will determine whether it is fillable or in need of extraction.

Not normal: That is not normal, the pain you have is due to infection, possible dry socket, have your dentist examine the extraction site, and prescribe proper meds.

Can it hurt to get a baby tooth pulled out if its not loose?

Can it hurt to get a baby tooth pulled out if its not loose?

Depends: It depends upon why it needs to be pulled in the 1st place. If there is not enough room it may be helpful in the short run... But just to pull a tooth for no reason can cause crowding problems later. Talk with your dentist about the pros and cons of removing a baby tooth for your child.

Does getting a tooth pulled hurt if you don't use anesthesia?

Depends: This will depend on how loose the tooth us to begin with. A very loose tooth will not hurt much. However one that is firmly seated will need some work to get out. At the very least consider local anesthetic.

Help docs! Would it hurt worse to get a bottom or top tooth pulled?

Bottom is worse: The fact is that after a tooth is extracted, the uppers have far less post surgical pain and complications. And they are usually easier to remove due to histological structure. You should feel no pain from either during the extractions and make sure you follow directions given by your dentist for fast healing. Take care.

Can you tell me if a tooth has already had a root canal, will it hurt when pulled?

Depends: If the tooth has a severe abscess, then it may not be complete "numb" due to the amount of infection present. Usually, the dentist can achieve complete local anesthesia and the extraction of the tooth is painless. If you are concerned about discomfort during the procedure, discuss the option of IV sedation with your dentist or oral surgeon.

See the dentist: If it has been over a week and still swollen return to the dentist for possibly antibiotics. In the meantime rinse (with your choice) and ice packs off and on.

What hurts more a root canal or having a tooth pulled?

What hurts more a root canal or having a tooth pulled?

Depends: I am guessing that you have pain of dental root origin and your dentist suggests a root canal versus removal of the tooth. If the tooth is in bad shape, extraction might be in order. But if the tooth can be saved (unless it is a wisdom tooth), then a root canal which can be done painlessly, will save your tooth which has significant benefits. Discuss with your dentist.
