Getting your wisdom teeth removed can be stressful and often people worry about the potential pain following the surgery. While these worries are valid, you don’t need to fret as most people feel little to no pain during the surgery and recovery process! Las Vegas Wisdom Teeth Removal is equipped to keep you comfortable before, during, and after the surgery so you have the best experience possible.
During the surgery, you will be sedated, most likely with anesthesia, and because of this, you will not feel anything during the actual teeth removal process. When you wake up from the procedure, the anesthesia will start to wear off and that is when you will notice the aftermath of surgery. Every case is different, however, a majority of people don’t feel pain at this stage of recovery. You will have minor swelling and mild discomfort for 3-5 days after the surgery, as your mouth takes time to heal, but by following the simple aftercare instructions provided and taking the medicines prescribed to you, you should feel minimal, if any, pain after your wisdom teeth removal surgery.
Make sure to follow the instructions given to you by your dentist, you can find them on our blog as well. These directions will ensure a simple, and painless recovery period for you. If the information provided is not followed complications can occur, such as infection, excessive bleeding, extra swelling, or even dry sockets. All of these complications can cause pain, so if you are feeling any pain, contact your clinic and they will recommend the best course of action for you.
