Has anyone gotten a molar extraction?

I need to get mines extracted and I'm freaking out I can't even sleep!

Thanks I have never gone to this dentist I could not even find reviews about the clinic which freaks me out more. I might look for another sliding fee clinic. Have you ever gotten a tooth extracted? I wonder how much it will hurt :(

    I have had to have so many teeth pulled...my teeth are just naturally bad no matter how well I take care of them. It does hurt but if you are in pain because of the tooth then it feels SO much better about a week after the extraction.

    But while they are doing the procedure do you feel pain? Do they have to stich too?

    The shots to numb hurt worse than getting the tooth pulled. It takes a lot to get me numb so for me there are a lot of shots involved. Normally you just feel a lot of pressure and you can feel and hear crunching...it is strange but not painful.
    I've never had to have stitches after. Normally they only do that if they have to do oral surgery which is not normal for a routine extraction. They will pack the extraction site with gauze and have you keep it in for a few hours. Some dentists will give you pain meds but some don't. I had one that just told me to use tea bags directly on the extraction site and to take Tylenol.

    Yup...I didn't try it but I have heard other people say it works. I'd rather have some strong meds! Lol

      Mine weren't bad. My mom never filled the prescription for pain killers. Keep them packed with gauze and take it easy.
