Tooth Extraction Healing Time
When a dentist mentions tooth extraction, many patients may become nervous. The thought of having a tooth pulled is commonly associated with pain, which many dentists understand. However, rest assured that at Cyberdent, our main priority is your comfort and we have many options that can make the tooth extraction process run smoothly.
But, what happens after a tooth extraction? It’s important that you follow any directions given to you by your dentist as your particular healing process may be different than someone else. With that said, typical healing after a tooth extraction takes anywhere from one to two weeks. New bone and gum tissue will grow during this time to fill the gap.
Immediately after a tooth extraction, the best thing you can do is rest for the remainder of the day. Additionally, returning to non-strenuous activities such as an office job or school class should not cause any problems with the tooth extraction. Rest and relaxation will help everything heal properly.
If you experience any of the followings after a tooth extraction, call your dentist in Glendale:
- Signs of infection
- Nausea or vomiting
- Uncommon redness, swelling or discharge from affected area
- Shortness of breath
- Chest pain
Remember, as our patient; you are our priority. Feel free to give us a call if you need to know more about tooth extractions or other dental procedures. Our dentist in Glendale looks forward to hearing from you!
