I think there are different methods for pulling teeth out...I had one wisdom tooth taken out the other day and it went okay with the usual pain and headache after the extraction. During the extraction, all the dentist did was inject an anaesthetic and started pulling out the tooth with all her strength. Is this how dentists extract a tooth? She had to hold my jaw to keep it still which exerted a very hard grip. So she pressed on the rest of my teeth very hard and I felt pain in those teeth (especially the front) days after the extraction but not great pain. Is this common? I only had one tooth taken out. Some people may have 4 taken out on the same day, meaning more time pressing the rest of the teeth and more pain on them. Could she have done something to prevent this?
Back when I was little I had to have some teeth pulled for braces
I swear the guy had to pull and pull until the tooth popped out.
Now about 4 years ago I had my wisdom teeth taken out ( mine were all fully grown out). I was expecting the same horrible procedure, however, this dentist (not the same guy as before) was able to get the tooth out in less than 10 seconds. He didn't even have to pull with alot of force.
To this day I still don't know how he did it and I didn't want to ask. It was over quick and thats all that mattered. Even thought it was quick, I never want to go through that again.
Well the way he did was I think he scraped part of the gum away around the tooth, then hit it real hard with some object to dislodge it (breaking the root i guess??). Then he just took a plier or something to gently move it out without effort.
