The tooth is extracted, usually surgically sectioned, but sometimes whole. The surgical site is then sutured closed.

To ease any discomfort and promote healing:

  • Use ice packs on the cheek for swelling, alternating on and off every thirty minutes.
  • Apply biting pressure with sterile gauze to stop bleeding for thirty to forty-five minutes.
  • Don't rinse your mouth, drink through a straw , spit forcefully or smoke the day of the surgery. These actions may restart the bleeding, impede healing and encourage formation of a dry socket.
  • Eat soft foods and drink extra liquids. Avoid hard or crunchy foods in the tender area
  • Begin rinsing, as directed, the day after the surgery. It is very important to keep food particles from collecting at the surgical site.
  • Brush carefully the day after surgery.
  • Take prescribed medications and follow all instructions as directed.
