Does it hurt to get teeth pulled?
because i might have to get 2 teeth pulled

it only hurts when the tooth is not supposed to come out


Pretty_Girly101
i got 4 teeth pulled for braces a couple years back, and they numbed my mouth-that part hurt a bit, and let it sink in. Then when they pulled it out, all I felt was pressure-lots of it, not stinging pain but like when a bigger person sits on you and its very pressurous on that spot. Not bad. they drug you up and give you meds for when the numbness wears off. it hurts for like the next day and your good to go!


greenbird223
Well they numb your gums first, maybe the shot hurts. But as far as it coming out, not really

I just had two molars pulled about a month ago. Now with the painless dentistry and the newer novacaines, i did not feel a thing and had no pain whatsoever afterwards. Also, the dentist put me on antibiotics about a week before he pulled them.

It doesn't hurt to get them pulled, but it can hurt after the numbness goes away. The dentist will usually give you pain meds for that though, so you should be alright.


- sarface.
yes, but they usually numb or freeze you're mouth so you don't feel most of the pain

They will probably numb your gums and that doe hurt so YES it will hurt.

The shots hurt a bit when they first go into your gums, but then once you are numb...you shouldn't feel "pain". Yes, you will feel pressure when they are pulling. Also, a good dentist will always try to be reassuring, and for you to give him/her a signal that there IS still pain-- and then they would simply give you more numbing medication.

Don't worry, you will be fine :)

***cries sadly*** sorry i was hoping most people would say "no" or "not very much", since I may have to get mine pulled! =''''( Now i'm really worried!!! I don't know how it feels, so i hope my two teeth that MIGHT be getting pulled come out normally soon! >.<


TheKidofAnime

I got 2 teeth pulled when they weren't even wiggly but they numbed my mouth with this numbing stick. The gums were sore afterwards but the pain was minimal.


aznchicka926
it doesn't really hurt, but the novacaine does. When they acually pull the3 teeth out u feel a little tug. Its not painful at all. Ask the doc if u can get numbing creame before ur novacaine shot.


Serena
It actually didn't hurt when it was done to me, and I didn't have pain afterward: my dentist is a "gentle care" one, who makes sure you don't feel anything. He gave me pills (pain killers) to keep the pain from even hitting me when I went home. The only slight pain I had was from the numbing shot. It's a quick procedure; and, if you follow your dentist's directions, you'll be over it in no time. Make sure you have some soft food on hand for the next few days afterward.


Mandy
Well, these days they numb it, but that doesn't mean you totally don't feel anything. It's nothing to worry your head over, if they don't numb it first, you can ask for them to numb it, and the pain will be very minimal to even (if you go to a really good dentist) none!
So, just walk right in there and sit down in that chair relaxed, you've got nothing to worry about.


Blue-Zaga
Only of it's not entirely loose or if they don't give you medicine to make it numb.


Montana
I think it is WAY better than having a cavity filled if you've had that. They give you novocaine through a shot in your gum near the tooth, so that pinches a bit, but not unbearably. I hate needles so just don't look and you'll be ok. The tooth pulling part is not bad, after the novocaine numbs you all up.

I had teeth pulled before I ever lost them on my own when I was a little kid, and I didn't mind it then.

Remember, you have to do it anyway, so try as hard as you can to not worry now, and tell the dentist and especially the nurses you see before hand that you are scared, just so they are extra careful to make it painless.

You'll be okaaaay.

Not if the dentist gives you something for the pain. Sometimes it hurts just a little.


Tammy
It will only hurt if you go to a Dentist that isn't good at getting you numb.


noccaprincess
Depends on your dentist. In all honesty it shouldn't hurt during the actual pulling. If it does hurt at all, let your dentist know immediately. Also let them know if you're really tense or nervous about the procedure, because they can provide medications like Ativan or a mild Valium, which should make the procedure much easier. You might also ask your dentist about taking medication before the procedure so that after the Novocaine wears off, your pain won't be so very intense.

In short, no it shouldn't hurt during the procedure... but yes, it will hurt after for a couple of days.

Depends on who does that... there are lots of lousy dentists no doubt... however if the dentist does a good job you should be ok by the time that the effect of the anestetic disappears.

Good luck!

the dentist will probably freeze your mouth so it wont hurt. it does feel a little weird though, like a suction kinda feeling, its hard to describe.


rena k
yes but that is why they give your freezing. THen all you feel is a tug or two.


woodsa28
i had to do the same exact thing as you, don't worry it's not that bad. the only thing that i was afraid of was the needle because i am terrified of needles, but that wasn't that bad, i just said the abc's in my head over and over again and gripped onto the handles on the chair. after the needle, you don't feel a thing. after the numbness wears off you might feel some pain, just take motrin or Tylenol.


amoo
Not really, if they drug you up right! But there will be some discomfort when that wears off :)

Yes but they give you medication.


Musicfish
The dentist will shoot you full of Novocaine, which hurts, but then you are completely numb while your teeth are pulled. Once the pain medicine wears off, you will be uncomfortable for a day or so, but you might get pain meds for that, too. After a couple of days, you will feel fine. Good luck!
