Surgical Dentistry in Seattle
A tooth extraction may be required due to several reasons; usually because of periodontal disease, trauma or crowding.
If you need an extraction, your dentist in Seattle
, Dr. Jon Tarleton
will first numb the area tominimize any discomfort. After the extraction, Dr. Tarleton will advise you of what post extraction regimen to follow. 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.
Here are some tips to follow to make recovery easier:
- Avoid anything that might prevent normal healing.
- Don’t smoke or rinse your mouth vigorously.
- Avoid drinking through a straw for 24 hours.
- Follow the diet your dentist suggests.
Remember, when having an extraction, today’s modern procedures and follow up care can be provided for your benefit and comfort.
