Tooth Extraction

is the removal of a tooth from the mouth. Extractions can be done for a number of reasons: extensive decay that has rendered the tooth non-restorable, impacted or problematic wisdom teeth, or to make space for orthodontic treatment, to name a few.

Here are some tips to follow to make recovery easier:

  • Avoid anything that might prevent normal healing, i.e. bothering the wound.
  • Don’t rinse your mouth vigorously for the first day.
  • Apply a cold compress and eat icecream (or other cold foods) for the first  day to reduce swelling.
  • Start warm salt-water rinses the 2nd day, doing the rinses 4-5x daily for 1 week.
  • Avoid smoking or drinking through a straw for 72 hours.
  • Follow the diet your dentist suggests.
  • Ask your dentist about pain medication. 
  • You can brush and floss the other teeth as usual.
