Dr. Song usually recommends removing a tooth if:
While the extraction process itself is usually pain-free, afterward, a little bleeding and swelling in the area is normal. Dr. Song will dress the treatment site with some gauze, and any lingering discomfort can be easily managed with an OTC pain-reliever. Initially, a patient should relax for about a day so a blood clot can form, which will allow the area to quickly heal. To speed up this process, a patient should stick to soft foods for a few days and avoid using a straw, chewing near the extracted tooth, or smoking.
