Oral Health Care Facts: Tooth Extractions

Posted .

Not all tooth extractions require lengthy recovery times. In fact, with cutting-edge technology and proper care after the procedure, you can shorten that time. However, there are some things you can do to speed the healing process.

– Stick to your dentist’s instructions regarding medications for pain and swelling.
– Ask your dentist if you have any questions or concerns about the procedure.
– Avoid exercise after an extraction, as it is much more important to rest, so your body can focus all of its energy on healing.
– If you were given a sedative or anesthesia, follow your dentist’s aftercare instructions.
– If your recovery doesn’t go smoothly, we recommend that you contact your dentist as soon as possible
