MULTIPLE TOOTH EXTRACTIONS
The removal of one or two teeth is a simple procedure. Extracting multiple teeth requires the jawbone to be shaped and removed, usually to prepare for a denture. You may experience the following after a multiple tooth extraction procedure:
- Within two days, you will experience the maximum swelling both inside the mouth and possibly around the eye as well.
- The area around your eye may also become discolored, which may be alleviated by a warm compress.
- The muscles near the extraction site may become sore after surgery, causing a sore throat. This is normal.
- The corners of your mouth may also become dry and crack from being stretched open during surgery.
In most cases, you will have a follow-up appointment with our dentist within 48 hours after surgery to discuss any post-surgery symptoms that you are experiencing.
