Dental Extraction in Norfolk
In certain cases, stitches are required after teeth removal in Norfolk at Ghent Family Dentistry. We let you know if they will eventually dissolve or need removal in a few days. The recovery time for a Norfolk dental extraction is usually only a few days, but there are many ways to speed up the process.
Recovery from Tooth Removal: a Proven Process
Once your tooth extraction in Norfolk is finished, take the recommended doses of prescribed painkillers to alleviate any pain and gently rinse your mouth with salt water a few times a day to decrease the amount of swelling. Avoid physical activity, smoking, and rubbing your tongue on the area.
Propping your head up, instead of laying down flat, reduces bleeding from teeth removal in Norfolk. Additionally, you should mainly eat softer foods until healing is in the final stages. Rest easy knowing Ghent Family Dentistry makes every effort to assist you during and after a dental extraction.
