Will I be awake during my tooth extraction? Will it hurt?

The type of anesthesia used during your tooth extraction will be discussed at your consultation. You may receive local anesthesia, sedation, or general anesthesia, depending upon your procedure and your own comfort levels. No matter which type of anesthesia you decide upon, your operation will be painless. While patients often report soreness, swelling, and tenderness after the extraction, our medical team will make sure that you feel minimum discomfort with either over-the-counter or prescription pain medication.
