We’ll Ensure Your Recovery Goes Well

We’ll provide you with complete instructions to help ensure a fast and comfortable recovery after your extraction. Our goal is to help get your smile back on track as soon as possible. To do this, you will want to:

  • Avoid physical activity for a day or two
  • Prop your head up with pillows to minimize swelling and bleeding
  • Use ice to reduce swelling, if needed
  • Stick to soft foods for at least a few days, also avoiding spicy foods
  • Do not brush and floss the area near the extraction site until it is fully healed; continue to brush and floss other areas
  • Avoid alcohol and smoking, as both can interfere with healing
