Everything You Need to Know About Tooth Extractions

If you have an upcoming tooth extraction, it’s understandable to be a bit nervous. However, the procedure itself is safe and effective, and the recovery time can be minimized by following a few simple steps.

You should avoid smoking or consuming alcohol for a few days after the procedure to reduce drying and irritation. Try drinking through a straw for the first few days as well to avoid direct contact with the area. Avoid rinsing if possible, but continue to floss and brush the unaffected teeth. Tooth extractions are generally painless, and by following these tips, your recovery will be quick and painless too!
