In brief: Maybe

It may but usually not that much.
Usually the pain is easily managed with a prescription pain medication but some patients find tylenol (acetaminophen) or advil is adequate.

In brief: No

No. You receive local anesthesia, or local plus IV sedation.
After, pain medication. Make sure you are evaluated and treated by an oral surgeon.

In brief: Comfort zone

With the profound local anesthesia and IV sedation you will have no recall of the events of the dental treatment or experience any pain.
In your case IV sedation is recommended. Take care.

In brief: Wisdom tooth pain

The actual removal of the teeth or surgery should not hurt.
You will be numb and possibly sedated depending on how your dentist/oral surgeon does it. Expect to have some post operative pain for at least a few days (I you are the patient, being 35....expect longer). Your dentist will give you plenty of meds to manage post operative pain. If your need them out, don't wait.
