What to Expect After a Tooth Extraction


There are certain times when one or more of your teeth may need to be extracted. While this is a relatively common procedure, it is still wise to take a look at what you can expect after the process.

For example, make it a point to prepare soft foods that can be comfortably eaten during the initial healing process. There may also be times when over-the-counter medication to reduce pain is warranted (speak with your dentist about this option).

It is just as prudent to keep an eye out for any unusual symptoms following the procedure. These can include nausea, vomiting, severe pain, or swelling. Consult with your dentist if such symptoms begin to develop.

As always, follow the instructions provided by your dentist in order to ensure a quick healing process. Let us now summarise this article by highlighting three takeaway points:

  • Avoid eating hard foods after a tooth extraction.
  • Be sure to follow professional instructions.
  • Seek advice if any symptoms develop.

“If the tooth you’re having extracted will need to be replaced—and, in many cases, this is true—ask your dentist about bone preservation.”
