Care During and After Baby Teeth Extractions

Dentists can use topical numbing agents that are flavored to prevent pain during tooth extraction. Pain is part and parcel of the tooth extraction process.

Key takeaways:

  • Tooth extraction is associated with bleeding. The dentist will use a small piece of gauze to prevent excessive bleeding.
  • Your child should get some rest after tooth extraction to avoid strenuous exercise.
  • You should keep the mouth clean by swishing some saline water. It will help to prevent infection at the site of extraction.

You can also give your child painkillers such as Tylenol and Ibuprofen after the blood clot has formed. However, remember not to give your child any pain medication before the extraction appointment as it can lead to blood clotting issues.
