How to Recover From a Tooth Extraction
Our dentists recommend treating the affected area gently and with the needed care after your extraction. Doing so will quicken the recovery process and reduce complications, so you can get back to your normal activities.
Make sure to eat soft, nutritious foods and consume plenty of water during your recovery. You can brush and floss your teeth as usual but avoid brushing the targeted area until it is sufficiently healed. Thoroughly rinse and wash your mouth with water 12 hours after your procedure and do so three times a day until it's fully healed to keep the area clean.
Schedule a follow-up exam if you experience continued pain, soreness or inflammation after recovery. Our team will assess your mouth, find the cause of your continual pain and develop a treatment to get you back to normal.
