We always ensure you are given plenty of anaesthetic for your procedure, so there should be no pain during the extractions. If you are concerned about pain or discomfort, you may choose to have twilight sedation or even go to hospital and have the extractions performed by an oral maxillofacial surgeon under general anaesthetic.
After your procedure, there will be some pain, swelling and discomfort. We recommend you rest quietly at home and take your prescribed painkillers for at least 2 to 4 days.
