What is the Tooth Extraction Process?
You will first meet with an oral surgeon in Long Beach to go over your medical history, discuss the procedure and create a treatment plan. This is a great time to ask questions, tell us about your anxieties and preferences and get the information you need to be comfortable.
Will Tooth Extraction Hurt?
Your comfort is our top priority during the procedure. If local anesthesia is used, the area will be numb so no pain is felt, but you can expect to feel some pressure. We take great care to minimize your discomfort.
What Happens After Tooth Removal?
Once the tooth has been extracted, we will go over home care instructions to aid in fast and complete healing. You may also be prescribed medication to help with any pain you may feel once the anesthesia wears off.
Our oral surgeons stress the importance of contacting us at any time with concerns or questions you may have post-procedure.
What Can I Expect Recovery to Look Like?
You can expect a full recovery after a tooth extraction to take a few weeks. The site of your tooth removal will be vulnerable, requiring gentle and attentive cleaning and a change in diet.
