General Dental Services
Tooth removal is a never a decision taken lightly. While we take every effort to repair and save your tooth, there may be situations where the only option is for a tooth to be removed.
We understand that you may have concerns about tooth removal.
Here at Woodville & Seaton Dental Clinic we provide you with all the information, advice and options so you can make the best-informed decision for your specific situation.
The healing time for a tooth extraction can vary. You will experience some discomfort, and your gums and cheeks will feel swollen.
The dentist will advise you to take care when eating and drinking. Other care advice includes:
- Use an icepack to treat the swelling
- Taking anti-inflammatory medication
For the first few days after your tooth removal try to eat soft foods. It’s also good to eat on the other side of your mouth to avoid the sore parts from being irritated and possibly damaged.
