What will I need to do following my extraction?

Good care of the extraction site will help it heal faster and minimize the possibility of any complications. Follow these tips for a better experience:

  • Plan to take a day off to relax and heal. 
  • Eat soft, cool foods such as yogurt, pudding, smoothies, shakes, ice cream, and soups that have been allowed to cool to room temperature.
  • Don't drink through a straw since this can dislodge the clot that is forming.
  • Don't smoke.
  • Don't poke at the extraction site with your tongue.
