Multiple Tooth Extractions
Removing one or two teeth in a procedure is quite common. When multiple teeth are extracted, this requires that the jawbone be reshaped and removed to prepare for a denture. After a procedure removing multiple teeth, it is normal to experience an extreme amount of swelling inside your mouth as well as around your eye. Some bruising around the eye is normal as well. This can be reduced with a warm compress. The muscles around the extraction site may be sore after the surgery. This can also lead to a sore throat. You may also experience some dryness and cracking at the corners of your mouth from being stretched open during the procedure. Most of the time there will be a follow up visit scheduled at least two days after surgery to check on any post-surgery symptoms you may have, as well as answer any questions.
