Have a tooth that is in an extreme amount of pain? Maybe you’ve already discussed options for saving your tooth with your dentist and simply can’t afford it. Perhaps you’re just not interested in keeping the tooth. If so, a Bright Side Dental dentist can extract it for you.
The procedure involves numbing 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.
For the first few days, if you must rinse, rinse your mouth gently afterward, for pain or swelling, apply a cold cloth or an ice bag. You can brush and floss the other teeth as usual. But don’t clean the teeth next to the tooth socket.
