Are you prepared for a tooth extraction if you need one? It’s necessary to plan before and after a medical procedure to ensure you will be able to have a successful recovery. With a tooth extraction, it is essential to make sure you take proper care of yourself after the procedure

You will need adequate rest after the procedure. Your body needs to time to heal and recover.

Always follow your dentist’s instructions. Doing so will make it much less likely that you will develop complications.

Ice packs can relieve any inflammation that may occur, and use any medications only as instructed by your dentist. To minimize the risk of choking, do not eat or drink before the anesthesia wears off.
