We’re committed to answering all of your questions with kindness and compassion. Going to the dentist can be nerve racking for some, and we want you to know we take your comfort very seriously. Schedule with us today to get started.
Day of Surgery
Do not disturb the surgical area today. Bite firmly on a gauze pad for at least 30 minutes to 1 hour to deal with the heavy oozing that is normal after an extraction. Insert a clean gauze pad after one hour if there is profuse oozing. Oozing may continue for 24 hours. Do not keep gauze in the mouth without active bleeding.
If you received anesthesia, do not chew until the numbness has subsided. This is to prevent you from biting your lip, cheeks or tongue.
Please read these instructions completely and carefully.
