Improve your oral health with successful tooth extractions. Tooth extractions require the removal of damaged or broken teeth, often with a small recovery time for your gums needed afterward.

Tooth extractions for the summer season can improve your smile. Listed below are some beneficial tips to better prepare you for a tooth extraction recovery:

– Smoking increases recovery time from an extraction, so give up smoking, or give it up for at least 2 full days before and after surgery.
– It is imperative that your body gets to rest and relax after surgery, so try to avoid all forms of exercise and fitness, to give your body time to repair.
– If your dentist has given you healing kits for recovery, follow them exactly as advised, and if any problems or concerns arise, be sure to let them know about it.
– Set forth a plan well in advance of your tooth extraction service to ensure you have the best chance of success before, during, and after the procedure.
– If unnecessary swelling occurs, use an ice pack or medications as prescribed by your dentist.
– To avoid choking on food, do not eat until the general anesthetic has completely diminished.
