What should you expect when you are scheduled for tooth extraction?

Our dentist will numb the area to lessen any discomfort. After the extraction, your dentist will advise you of what post extraction regimen 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 afterward, 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 and are there to  provide you the patient great benefit and comfort.

*If the site is to be considered for a dental Implant to replace the missing root tooth site grafting may be done at the time.

Site or Socket Grafting: Grafting after an extraction is sometimes done to stimulate your own body's bone regeneration and can act as a scaffolding to maintain the integrity of the bone while healing.
