Having surgery to remove an impacted tooth is something routinely done at the Rovi Smile Center dental practice in Coral Springs, FL. We know that this isn’t something our patients have to deal with regularly, so we provide helpful tips on how to best proceed after surgery.

There is generally some discomfort after dental surgery, but rest, a modified softer diet, and pain medication will help. We will prescribe something or recommend over-the-counter pain medication to help you.
Drinking and Eating:
After a few days, you should be able to resume your regular diet. If the area where the impacted tooth was removed is still uncomfortable, it may help to favor the other side of your mouth. Careful rinsing and oral hygiene is important. Avoid using a straw for several days during healing as it can dislodge blood clots that form and result in significant bleeding. Consider drinking tepid beverages for a few days, if you find you are sensitive to hot or cold.
About Dental Implants
Dental implants are an excellent way to replace missing teeth. They don’t require alteration of neighboring teeth, they are permanently placed in the mouth, and they behave as close to natural teeth as you can get. They can last a lifetime and require the same care as natural teeth in terms of oral hygiene. When compared against alternatives like dentures, dental implants get rave reviews. You can replace a single tooth or several teeth with implants dentistry.
