Does It Hurt to Have a Wisdom Tooth Extracted?

Munford TN General DentistThird molars, also known as wisdom teeth, can be a real pain. They can hurt when they grow in, hurt when they don't grow in properly, and hurt if they get infected with cavities or gum disease.

But now you might be worrying: if it's time for your wisdom teeth to be extracted, will that hurt too?

Happily, you'll be nice and numb for the entire process. You won't have to feel any pain or discomfort. You may be aware of a tugging sensation, but nothing is going to make you very uncomfortable. A little anesthetic injection takes care of that.

If you prefer, we’ll also set you up with an appropriate sedation medication to help you relax. You can doze and relax your way through the entire process.
