Your dentist may use a general anaesthetic, this will prevent pain throughout your body and make you sleep through the procedure.
Once the tooth has been extracted, a blood clot usually forms in the socket. The dentist will pack a gauze pad into the socket and get you to bite down on it to help stop the bleeding. Sometimes the dentist will place a few stitches usually self-dissolving to close the gum edges over the extraction site. Click here hungarydentalimplant.co.uk for painless tooth extractions
