After a wisdom tooth is removed, you may experience:
Pain and swelling in your gums and tooth socket where the tooth was removed.
Bleeding that won't stop for about 24 hours.
Difficulty with or pain from opening your jaw (trismus).
Removal of tooth or extraction means the same thing. Your dentist will give you medicine to reduce any pain you will have after extraction. Pain doesn't last longer than 48 hrs and in a weeks time you will be nearly back to normal.
extraction and removal of wisdom tooth is one and the same.. yes surgery is a bit painful than regular extraction.. but it depend on the position of wisdom tooth in the bone, technique etc..the discomfort , swelling if any last for 3-4 days which can be controlled by Medicines .regards..
No under local anaesthesia it can be removd painless.
