Tooth Extraction

Tooth Extraction

What should you expect when you are scheduled for a tooth extraction? The area will be numbed to lessen any discomfort. After the extraction, you will be advised of what post extraction regiment to follow, in most cases a small amount of bleeding is normal.

Avoid anything that might prevent normal healing. It is usually best not to smoke or rinse your mouth vigorously, or drink through a straw for 24 hours. These activities could dislodge the clot and delay healing.

For the first few days, if you must rinse, rinse your mouth gently. For pain or swelling, apply a cold cloth or an ice bag. Ask your dentist about pain medication. You can brush and floss the other teeth as usual. But don’t clean the teeth next to the tooth socket.

When having an extraction, today’s modern procedures and follow up care as recommended are there to provide you the patient great benefit and comfort.
