Q.

Wisdom teeth

Good day.
I am 26 and getting 2 of my wisdom teeth upper and lower left pulled on Friday in the hospital. The teeth are already out and not impacted. What i want to know is what kind of pain should i expect. I am so scared. I also heared that if on the pill, it could cause a dry socket? What can i do to better the pain after the surgery?

Severity of the pain will vary greatly between patients.
Women who are on a contraceptive pill are more likely to get dry sockets but the pill alone will not "cause" a dry socket.
Your surgeon will advise you on post op medication and pain management
