The removal of one or two teeth is a simple procedure. Extracting multiple teeth requires that the jawbone be shaped and removed to prepare for a denture.
You may experience the following after a multiple tooth extraction procedure:
- Within two days, you will experience the maximum swelling both inside the mouth and possibly around the eye as well.
- The area around your eye may also become discolored, which may be alleviated by a warm compress.
- The muscles near the extraction site may become sore after surgery, causing a sore throat. This is normal as well as the corners of your mouth becoming dry and cracked from being stretched open during surgery.
In most cases, you will have a follow up appointment with your dentist within 48 hours after surgery to discuss any post surgery symptoms that you are experiencing.
