Removal of teeth beyond repair
If you need an extraction, your dentist will first numb the area to lessen any discomfort. After the extraction, in most cases a small amount of bleeding is normal. Your mouth will slowly fill in the bone where the tooth root was through the formation of a blood clot.
To avoid anything that might prevent normal healing:
- Don’t smoke
- Don’t rinse your mouth vigorously.
- Avoid drinking through a straw for 24 hours.
- Follow the diet your dentist recommends.
