The procedures we do at Harvard Rd Dental Care, include Wisdom teeth extractions and extractions of hopeless teeth that unfortunately can not be restored due to gum disease or extensive decay. We also remove baby teeth when indicated before Orthodontic treatment. Tooth removal is sometimes the last option, but necessary. Our goal is to always make you feel comfortable.
What should you expect when you are scheduled for a tooth extraction?
We will numb the area to lessen any discomfort. After the extraction, we will advise you of what post extraction regimen to follow, in most cases a small amount of bleeding is normal. Avoid anything that might prevent normal healing. This includes no smoking or rinsing your mouth vigorously, or drink through a straw for 24-48 hours. These activities could dislodge the clot and delay healing.
