The Importance of After-Care
After any tooth extraction, you must take proper precautions to heal effectively. In the empty socket where your tooth sat, a blood clot typically forms. If this doesn’t happen or if the blood clot is dislodged, the bone and nerves below the socket become exposed, known as dry socket. Dry socket is painful but preventable. We will provide easy-to-understand, post-extraction guidelines following your procedure.
After you have healed, it is wise to replace the extracted tooth. This will preserve your bone and complete your smile. Many patients choose to receive a dental implant where their previous tooth once was. Dental implants are the only permanent tooth replacement solution to achieve a fixed, naturally functioning smile.
