Recovering from extractions can vary from patient to patient. Depending on the size of the tooth, its location, and the patient’s dental history, aftercare instructions can be different. There are 2 different types of extractions that can differ in their aftercare.
Each patient is different when it comes to recovery. Some will need to take multiple days off from work to heal, depending on the amount of physical activity required for their job. The doctor will discuss with you how to prepare for the procedure beforehand so that you can coordinate with work and family/friends.
These tips can help you heal faster, and make you more comfortable during your recovery. If you can, avoid needing tooth extractions by brushing 2x a day and flossing regularly. With this plan, you can ensure that your teeth and mouth stay healthy.
