What Can You Expect After Multiple Extractions?
If you are looking for an oral surgeon in Melbourne, FL then look no further than Sedaros Oral Facial Surgery & Dental Implants, especially if you are in need of multiple extractions. There are several reasons that you may need to have one or more tooth extracted. Animated-Teeth.com shares a few of the reasons you may need this procedure:
1. If you have damaged teeth:
- Broken, cracked, or extensively decayed teeth
- Teeth that are unsuitable candidates for root canal treatment
- Teeth that have advanced gum disease
2. Or certain types of teeth may need to be extracted:
- Malpositioned teeth
- Non-functional teeth
- Impacted teeth
After this procedure, a small amount of bleeding is to be expected and if bleeding occurs, place a gauze pad directly over the bleeding socket and apply biting pressure for 30 minutes. Also, make sure to use ice packs (externally) on the same side of the face as the operated area. Apply ice for the first 36 hours only but make certain to apply ice continuously while you are awake. It’s also best if you restrict your diet to liquids and soft foods, which are comfortable for you to eat. As the wounds heal, you will be able to advance your diet.
