Before having surgical tooth extractions, your medical and dental history is taken. X-rays or possible CT Scan help your oral surgeon to see the best route to remove the affected tooth. If you have dental anxiety or dental fear, sedation options for pain-free dental treatment may be discussed with your dentist.

On the day of surgery, if you have picked moderate or deep sedation options, you would have undergone a health check with pre-prepatory instructions given to you before administering IV sedation or general anesthesia.
If having tooth removal done conventionally, your oral surgeon will numb the area around the tooth with a local anesthesia injection and check with you if you are able to feel the area. It is normal to feel pressure whilst your dentist removes the concerned tooth. During removal, you should not feel any pain, just pressure or rocking motion. If you do feel any sensitivity prior or during removal, please raise your hand up or notify your oral surgeon immediately. Your dentist can then re-check to administer more numbing agent.
There may be some bleeding after teeth removal and your dentist will you to bite down on a piece of gauze for 20-30 minutes and you are requested not to spit for first few hours. The guaze may be changed if it gets overly soaked. Biting on the guaze helps to form a blood clot in the extraction site.

After teeth removal, there may be a small amount of bleeding 24 hours after the treatment.
Your dentist may administer antibiotics or medications after surgery, please take the medication as prescribed. Typically, your course of antibiotics will need to be completed. For pain relief medications, this may be taken as and when requierd.
