In brief: No

If properly "numbed up" you should feel no pain.
Although, while awake you will be aware of pressure and sounds. Many opt for I.V. Sedation to avoid any unpleasantries.

In brief: No

Local anesthetic is an effective way to anesthetize the area for dental surgery.

In brief: No pain

No pain during extraction of you are adequately numbed.
There would be lots of pressure but no pain we always test the area to make sure of numbness. After extraction , it depends on how deficalt the extraction. In most cases the area would be mildly sore for a day or two which can easily be managed with pain med. Just follow the post op instruction your dr. Will give you and you will be ok.

In brief: Not really

Most teeth extractions can be done under local anesthesia with a cooperative patient.
If there are especially impacted teeth then some sedation might be indicated. I don't even remember the procedure after a little dose of valium. If you have concerns please contact your dentist and discuss these fears with him. Good luck.

In brief: Minimal Pain

Depending on how badly impacted there will be some pressure, and movement.
Usually some sinus pressure variations with the pulling. This pulling puts some pressure on the tmj's that will possibly be sore afterwards. Nsaid's like ibuprofen, aleve which can increase bleeding or Celebrex (celecoxib) which does not will help more than opioids like lortab or Percocet which have no anti =inflammatory effect.

In brief: Depends

Pain and the perception of pain varies with each individual.
Removal of teeth involves some degree of pressure applied to the tooth. You can still feel the pressure sensation when your mouth is numb. Some patients do not want to feel anything and associate the pressure sensation as pain while some patients may not have an adequate level of local anesthesia and could experience some discomfort.

In brief: Not during procedure

Impacted wisdom teeth require more work to remove than non impacted teeth.
You will not feel anythign while the procedure is going on due to the anesthesia your surgeon will use. Once the anesthesia wears off the area will be sore because an extraction is a surgical procedure and like any surgical procedure there is some level of discomfort following the procedure.
