I'm getting my adult teeth pulled out tomorrow and I am quite anxious about it. I've already gotten teeth pulled out but those are milk teeth.
Is it a big deal to get them pulled out because my mum kept saying that for her it is...
Does anyone have any reasons not to be anxious about it?

being a bit anxious is normal. I had mine pulled out before I got braces. It was fine once they got the anaesthetic in the right place! Initially the guy was yanking at my tooth after not having administered the anaesthetic properly lol. So I literally felt the pain as he was yanking at my teeth! I just gesticulated to stop and they after he administered the anaesthetic properly to the root canal, the teeth extraction bit itself was fine.

Good luck

Literally just got four teeth out last Sunday! They gave me local anaesthetic so my mouth was numb and couldn’t feel it for a few hours. I took paracetamol and ibuprofen for 24 hours and then I’ve just kinda taken it if I needed it since. The worst bit for me has been the hunger because you can only have soft foods but today I ate fries and was fine! I’ve also been rinsing with salt water after eating and corsodyl to help the healing. A tip for the corsodyl is to dilute it as it can be quite strong and when I first took it it stung a bit as it’s minty. Hope it all went well!

I honestly can’t remember. Was sore for a few days but was then fine. Your lips kinda droops bit till the anaesthetic wears off.

Hope it all goes well! It’s normal to be nervous of course but the mouth is very quick to heal and when I went the dentists were all very understanding that I was nervous for it so they helped calm me down a ton! Just get stocked up on soft foods and pain killers and you’ll be ok ❤️
