Once, one of my wisdom teeth was impacted, so the pain was worse to have it in my mouth than it was after extraction. Sufficed to say, I didn't need anything for pain. Compared to having a decayed, impacted wisdom tooth in my gums, the after-effect of extraction was just a mild-ache.

I had 5 teeth pulled 6 days ago, 4 wisdom and 1 bottom front tooth. Just had local freezing, a few stitches and all went excellent. I had almost no pain during or after for about 2 days. It was no problem at all and a quick recovery for 3 of my teeth.

The other 2 became the worst pain I have ever experienced due to what I now know as dry socket. This feels like the worst sensitive to cold in teeth, hour after hour for days and nights on end. The reason I got dry socket is that I spat blood from my mouth for hours after surgery, not knowing not to. I want to warn anyone having wisdom teeth removed, that it doesn't take much disturbance. You could make this an EXTREMELY PAINFULL and long recovery when it should have been nearly painless. (first day don't spit, swish, or suck from anything at absolutly all costs because my morphine and two other very strong pain killers would not touch the pain)

Hello, I have been a Ceritfied Dental Assistant for almost 10 years.

There really is no to your question about how long you will have pain, everyone is different. Most people are better within 1 to 2 weeks. I MUST urge you, if you are having pain that feels like it is getting worse PLEASE call your dentist. You may have what is called a Dry Socket, infection setting in. This NEEDS to be treated!

If stitches were removed early it again may or may not affect you more or less with pain than someone else, you will have to be more careful in the area where the tooth was taken out. Again it depends on you.

Hope this helps? :) Don't worry most of us all go thru this :) You will be fine! Just keep this in mind, if you had that big of a hole on the bottom of your foot it would take MUCH longer to heal right?, YEP! So really be thankful it is in your mouth...I know sounds CRAZY, but it is true!

When i had my wisdom teeth pulled i didn't even have stitches and i didn't really experience any pain at all. I was back to my everyday activities the day after the surgery. So when the stitches come out may or may not have an impact on the level of pain you feel.

Part of this depends upon your age. The older you are, the more solidly the roots of the wisdom tooth are attached to the jaw bone. At age 39 I had my lower left wisdom tooth removed, and today (14 days later) the pain is still pretty solid. When I had my right bottom wisdom tooth removed at age 22, the pain was practically gone in three or four days.

I'm on my third day of having ALL of my wisdom teeth removed. The teeth had not yet shown through the gums and, in my opinion, where nowhere close to surfacing. The dentist still insisted that I get them removed; I did. The dentist had to make four incisions, dig around, pull the teeth, then close up the gums with (seemingly) biodegradable, plastic-like sutures. In all, I had five teeth removed, all were on a sub-gum level and classified (by my doctor/dentist) as wisdom teeth. The pain is really quite amazing, even on the third day. I'm 18 years old, so I suppose (as written above) my teeth are not as well rooted as an older persons' might be, but a day seems a month with the pain I'm feeling.

To this question, the pain is already receding. I can not remember much of day one, but I'm sure the pain was far worse.

Everyone is subject to different recovery times, so it's hard to say when your pain will end. Keep this in mind, though; your mouth is subject to constant bombardment by all manner of germs as well as VERY differing thermal conditions. As a result, humans' mouths reproduse cells much faster than other areas of the body. In other words, Mouths heal coparatively quickly.

!IMPORTANT! I wish to save you as much pain as possible, so I will go above and beyond. In all likelyhood, your doctor/dentist will proscribe you oxycodone as well as anti-biotics and usually some ibuprofen. Well, on your first and second day back from the operation, it is unlikely you will be able to eat enough (babyfood, protein shakes, jello, pudding, mush, soup etc.) to have a stomach that can handle you taking all your meds at once. You will probably need to take the pills saperately (i mean like at least an hour apart). I say this because (on top of my pain and hunger) I threw up at 2:30 am. This is my opinion only, call your dentist for his/her opinion, which is much better. Good luck.

How many days should you wait to remove stitches after a cat has been spayed?

I think veterinary surgeons typically use dissolving stitches when spaying female cats. At least, all the female cats my family and I have had were stitched up with dissolving stitches when they were spayed. If your vet did not use dissolving stitches, then you will have to take her back to the vet to have the stitches removed. DO NOT attempt to remove them yourself; only a qualified veterinarian should do it. Call your vet and ask if and when the stitches need to be removed.

How long should stitches be left in?

The doctor who put them in will be able to best judge how long they need to be left in, but on average stitches on the face should be left in for 3-5 days, stitches on the body or scalp 7-10 days, and stitches on extremities 10-14 days. When a stitch is put in on a joint like the elbow or knee, the wound will take longer to heal and stitches should be left in for a full two weeks. Stitches being left in for too long risk infection and painful extraction and stitches removed too soon can result in the wound opening up again.

What are temporary stitches?

Temporary stitches, sometimes called "basting stitches" are stitches used to hold fabric in place until the main stitches are put in. These stitches are often larger than normal stitches, and are designed to be easy to remove. Temporary stitches are often done by hand with a needle and thread, but in some cases temporary stitches are placed by using the longest stitch setting on a sewing machine. Because the stitching is further apart, it is easier to insert a seam ripper under the threads, and easily rip out the temporary stitching without damaging the fabric.A garment sewer will baste a garment with temporary stitches so that the clothes can be tried on and the fit can be adjusted before permanently stitching the fabric together. This allows the garment sewer to make sure that a dress or jacket has a perfect custom fit without tearing out long seams of stitching meant to be more permanent.In quilting, temporary stitches are often used in paper piecing. The papertemplate is stitched to the fabric. This template gives the fabric shape, and prevents it from shifting. Once the fabric has been incorporated into the quilt, the temporary stitches can be removed.Temporary stitches can also be used when quilting a quilt. A quilter might baste together a quilt top to hold the layers together until it can be formally quilted. Once the quilt has been fully quilted, the basting stitches can be removed.Cross-stitchoften uses temporary stitches as well. Running threads at 5 or 10 square intervals on a cross-stitchcanvas allows the stitcherto more easily count across the canvas. These threads are removed when the piece is finished.In some cases, temporary stitches are removed after the completion of the item. Other times, the temporary stitches are removed as the permanent stitching is put in place. In cases where the temporary stitching is hidden in the seam, it can stay in place after the permanent stitching has been placed.Temporary stitches are not always taught in sewing classes. We often use pins or spray adhesive to hold fabric together until permanent stitching can be placed.Temporary stitches are large, easily removed stitches, also called basting stitches. They allow pieces of fabric to be held together long enough for fitting or adjusting, then easily removed to make changes.

Easy, YOU DON'T! You are supposed to go to the doctor 7-10 days after the stitches were put in. At this time, the doctor examines the wound and determines if has healed enough for the stitches to be safely removed. The doctor may determine that the wound is infected and the stitches need to stay in until the infection is gone.
