Hi there
I recently had a surgical extraction at the dentist and oh boy was it sore! However, I am a total wreck when it comes to dental work!!! I've had two teeth extracted over the years and both have been awful, but the most recent one was with a really nice dentist and he was very good with me ( as I'm terrified) but the pain was so bad after especially for the first 48 hours or so. Lots of pain relief required and I'm use to pain!!! Once the antibiotics kicked in all was good.
At the end of the day it's a surgical extraction so it's never going to be pain free but just be prepared and once it's done you can move on.
Good luck :)

Clears away the cobwebs and the sorrow 'til there's none

When I'm stuck with a day that's grey and lonely
I just stick out my chin and grin and say, oh

The sun will come out tomorrow
So you gotta hang on
'til tomorrow, come what may!"

Hi EvelynRice

I receny had a 1st moalar extracted. I followed instructions and bit on the gause hard to stop the bleeding (I'm not fond of the taste of blood.) I would suggest a trip to the pharmacy to pick up a pack of gauze squares before the procedure because they are very cheap and extras are handy to have.

It settles down within a few hours and was nothing like the pain pre extraction pain.

My daughter had all her lower teath removed in one sitting in her mid twenties and that took a few days to settle..

In both instances I could not say the proceedire or post procedure caused extreme lasting untreatable pain (my Daughter took paracetamol for a few days)

Hope this helps settle your anxiety a little

Once I could laugh with everyone
Once I could see the good to me
Holding the world inside
Now the world is grey to me
Nobody can see you gotta believe it
Oh oh the night comes down
And I get afraid of losing my way
Oh oh the night comes down
And it’s dark again
