What can I expect during my extraction?

If it has been determined that you need a dental extraction, you’ll need to schedule your surgery appointment. To reduce the pain, you’ll be given a local anesthetic during your procedure and prescribed medication to help manage the pain once you go home. Depending on how many teeth are extracted, you may be given general anesthesia or sedated.

What will my aftercare look like?

Postoperative care is absolutely necessary for proper healing and to avoid any complications after your extraction. You may be advised to avoid particular foods, and will be prescribed antibiotics to prevent infection. You shouldn’t smoke or drink using a straw avoid getting dry sockets, which could extend the time it takes you to heal.
