What should I expect with an extraction?

To speed up your mouths recovery after an extraction:

  • Take some pain killers  (paracetamol + ibuprofen) before the local anesthetic wears off
  • Stop smoking - it delays healing and can lead to infection of the socket.
  • Avoid vigorous physical activity
  • Slight oozing of blood is normal.  If significant bleeding occurs - bite down hard on gauze/cotton pad for 20 mins.  If excessive bleeding continues contact us ASAP.
  • Avoid spiting and rinsing on the day of extraction.
  • Avoid alcohol
  • Drink plenty of cold/warm drinks and soft food
  • Start hot salty mouth rinses (1tsp salt dissolved in a mug of warm water ) the following day, and brush your teeth.
  • If symptoms become severe please contact us.
