What Happens After Tooth Extraction?

We strongly recommend that patients schedule some free time to rest following their extraction procedure. You will need a trusted escort to drive you home, and you can expect some oral bleeding that can be treated with the consistent application of gauze to the treatment site. If your mouth is continuing to bleed after a full day, please contact us right away!

Also, take care to not use a straw when drinking beverages, as the sustained sucking may loosen your sutures and prolong necessary clotting. If you regularly smoke, try to abstain during the healing period as well.
