I had a pair of very compacted teeth on the bottom, and I had absolutely no pain afterward. The only minor issue was the blood that I swallowed for a little bit, made the stomach a little upset so maybe get some gingerale and have some jello/soup/water to help keep you filled up. Was back to eating normal foods again a day later or so, only minor issue there was peanuts (because it was Christmas time) they were small enough to get into the holes a little bit, no pain just had to flush them out. The holes basically closed within a week or so, again no big deal, just get some small food bits in there and need to clean it. The real fun were the stitches, they feel kinda cool when you ultimately pull them out a week or so later, no pain, just weird.
