Post-op instructions


Avoid eating and drinking until the numbness due to the anesthetic has subsided.  If supervising children who have had a tooth removed, take care that they do not bite their lips, inner cheeks, or tongues.  Serious injury to their tissues may result.

Removal of a tooth is a surgical procedure.  Appropriate post operative care is therefore necessary.  Following removal of a tooth, a blood clot needs to form in order for the bleeding to cease and the healing process to begin.

Should any questions, uncertainties, or problems arise, please contact our office.
