Frequently asked questions about tooth extractions
Is tooth extraction painful?
At Crystal Lake Dental Arts, we provide sedation options to numb the area, ensuring a painless procedure. After the extraction, you may experience some discomfort, typically manageable with over-the-counter pain relievers.
How long is the recovery after a tooth extraction?
Most patients recover within a few days, but some may experience pain and swelling for up to a week. Carefully following our post-extraction instructions is vital to support healing and prevent complications.
What can I eat following a tooth extraction?
Stick to soft, cool foods that won’t irritate the extraction site.
- Mashed potatoes
Avoid hot, spicy, and crunchy foods initially. As you heal, you can gradually reintroduce a regular diet, starting with softer foods and progressing to harder options as recommended by your dentist.
