We do extractions for pre-orthodontics treatment, extraction of hopeless baby teeth, wisdom teeth, as well as any other teeth with hopeless prognosis. If necessary, especially for extractions under sedation referral to specialist will be necessary.
Following the extraction you have been asked to bite on moist gauze. Please bite firmly on the gauze placed at the site of extraction for the next 30 minutes until bleeding stops. If bleeding does not stop, repeat with the extra gauze you have been provided with. Small amount of bleeding is normal of the first 24-48 hours post extraction. If you experience excessive bleeding which requires frequent rinsing of your mouth try brewing a Lipton tea bag, placing it in the freezer and once it is completely cooled off, placing it at the site of extraction. Bite on it firmly.
Please pay attention to the following for the 24-48 hours post extraction:
If you experience any unusual symptoms such as excessive bleeding, swelling, or pain (even after taking your pain medication) please call us immediately.
