Not a pleasant experience at all. First, had to wait 4 days after the initial contact for a consultation and then waited another 4 day before I had the tooth removed. They did prescribe me painkillers between the consultation and the extraction, as I was experiencing throbbing pain. They did not after the extraction, which hurt just as bad. During the extraction, the doctor had to stop an give me more local anesthetic cause I could feel him cutting and pulling. That freaked me out during the rest of the procedure. I was shaking and sweating profusely. Not once, before or during, did the doctor ask me if I would like a mild sedative. After I got home, I noticed that there was a stich on my gum two teeth away from the site of the extraction. Did he slip and cut me there? Glad he didn't poke a hole in my cheek! STAY AWAY!!
Regardless of depth of anesthetic, almost all patients will feel the "tugging" sensation during surgery. Surgical procedures are usually initiated with an incision around the soft tissue or gum of the tooth to be extracted. They are referred to as "laying a flap". A good flap will typically extend to and sometimes past the adjacent teeth. Following surgery, the flap is sutured to allow re-attachment. Extended flaps allow for better vision of the surgical site, better access, and safe removal of teeth. Hence I would recommend "staying away" from a dental surgeon whose flaps do not allow for a safer procedure.
