After your tooth has been removed, we’ll provide you with a personalized treatment plan to ensure a smooth and speedy recovery. We aim to help you avoid complications and ensure comfort as your smile heals. We’ll outline a post-operative plan utilizing prescription and/or over-the-counter pain medications. We may also suggest applying a cold compress to your cheek in ten-minute intervals for up to an hour to curb swelling, reduce bleeding, and alleviate pain. In addition, we’ll provide aftercare tips such as how to brush and floss for the next few days, when and how to switch out your gauze, and how to introduce a range of foods back into your diet gradually. During your recovery, if you notice any of the following signs, give us a call right away:
- Increasing pain after the first two days
- Sensitivity near the extraction site
- Redness, swelling, or heat near the surgical site
- Bleeding that doesn’t stop after the first two days
