  • Mine were relatively easy, straight roots, etc. I had minor discomfort afterwards. I didn't even need to use my pain medication. My husband however ended up with dry socket and excruciating pain. Everyone has different experiences, but the extraction itself wasn't painful, if that's what you are worried about . There is pressure, but no actual pain.

  • It wasn't awful. I went right back to work answering phones and helping clients. Numb and swollen. LOL I didn't even take all the pain meds.

  • Every ones pain level is can't possibly predict what another persons pain will be. I would think not bad.....but don't know

  • I had 4 out at one time. Depends on how well you handle pain. How deep your roots are, and how good your Dentist is. You'll have a few days pain, lets face it, its surgery. But, it's something medicine can help with the pain. Good Luck.
