We believe that every tooth is precious & one of the main goals of modern dentistry will always be the prevention of tooth loss. All possible measures should be taken to preserve & maintain your teeth because the loss of a simple tooth can have a major impact upon dental health & appearance. However it is still sometimes necessary to remove a tooth.
No it is not a painful procedure. Various pain management procedures need to be taken care of before & after the extraction to minimise discomfort.
Prior to extraction it is always advisible to start a course of antibiotics & analgesics to minimise the infection thereby minimising pain.
Also the area is anesthetised with a local anesthetic before the procedure thereby making it a relatively painless procedure.
However post-extraction care is required.
