Tooth Extractions in Bloomingdale
Your 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 by your dentist are there to provide you the patient
great benefit and comfort.
