Dr. Patrick Morrissey will provide you with instructions to help you recover following your tooth extraction procedure in Lake Oswego, Oregon. If you have any questions or would like to make an appointment with our dentist, contact Boones Ferry Dental today at 503-699-6699.
While removing one or two teeth from your mouth is a fairly simple procedure, removing multiple teeth will require additional treatments to shape your jawbone and prepare it to receive implants or a denture. Our dentist will discuss your options with you beforehand to help you make an informed decision about your care.
After having multiple teeth extracted, you will experience the maximum possible swelling in your mouth, and possibly around your eye, within two days. The area around your mouth may also become discolored, and this can be alleviated with the use of a warm compress.
You may also find that:
- The muscles near the extraction site become sore and cause a sore throat
- The corners of your mouth become dry and cracked
This is normal, and you should recover quickly.
You will have a follow-up appointment scheduled with our dentist within 48 hours following your extractions to discuss any post-surgery symptoms you are experiencing and to check on your healing process at that point.
If you have any questions, please contact our office and speak with a member of our team.
