No ……….With the use of highly efficient local aesthetics and better armamentarium, tooth removal is a painless procedure in modern dental practice.
The extraction of a tooth is done under a local anaesthetic. The specific area of the mouth where the tooth has to be removed is numbed with a local anaesthetic solution. Once the numbness sets in, your dentist proceeds to remove your tooth. If the tooth is severely infected, your dentist may prescribe a course of antibiotics and painkillers to be consumed before the procedure.
