It is vital as part of the explanation to inform you of any complications that may arise. During the consultation, we will discuss with you what to expect before, during, and after the treatment.
As soon as you are ready, a local anaesthetic will be administered to make the extraction more comfortable for you. In order to ensure the surrounding area is numb, the dentist checks it carefully before removing your tooth. Some pressure may be felt during extraction, but there should be no discomfort.
After undergoing dental surgery, you may occasionally experience postoperative discomfort. Over-the-counter medications can easily treat this condition, which lasts a few days in most cases.
