I am curious, why does it hurt so much more to get a wisdom tooth removed than a regular tooth?

May or may not be. If it's a fully erupted wisdom tooth, it will be the same as any other tooth. If it is impacted this varies greatly depending upon the angle of the tooth, the development of the roots, whether or not bone needs to be removed or the tooth sectioned, and the skill of the surgeon, not to mention your own pain threshold. Basically it is a much more difficult procedure in most cases. Read more...

As with all medical and dental procedures, make you sure you discuss the plan and options with your doc - preferably during a prior visit. Read more...
Would recommend. If the wisdom tooth is still under the gum, it is impacted. Impacted teeth are more difficult to remove. I would refer you to oral surgeon for the extraction.

Sedation is more expensive but no worry. Read more...
