What should you expect when you are scheduled for a tooth extraction?

The Dentist will numb the area to alleviate any discomfort. After the extraction, we will issue you with an “After Oral Surgery Care” form giving you information and instructions to follow. This form will also tell you what medications to take if you are experiencing pain.

If you are a smoker, it is best not to smoke for 24 hours as smoking can affect the healing process.

If, after a few days, the pain and discomfort has not improved, please call us. Otherwise we will call you in a few days to make sure everything is healing well
