Tooth removal is needed when a tooth is badly damaged, infected, or crowding other teeth. Sometimes, wisdom teeth need to be removed if there isn’t enough room in your mouth.

During tooth removal, your dentist numbs your mouth, then gently wiggles and pulls out the tooth. It might feel a bit weird, but it shouldn’t hurt.

Tooth removal isn’t usually painful because your mouth is numbed with medicine. You might feel pressure or tugging, but it’s not too bad. Afterward, your mouth might be sore for a few days.

If you have a toothache that won’t go away, or if your dentist says a tooth needs to be removed, it’s time to call them. They’ll check it out and let you know if tooth removal is necessary.

Tooth removal recovery varies, but it usually takes a few days to a week. Your mouth might be sore and swollen at first, but it gets better with time. Follow your dentist’s instructions for faster healing, like avoiding hard foods and rinsing gently.
