Your initial healing period after having a tooth or teeth extracted will be about one to two weeks. You will experience some swelling and discomfort for the first 48 hours.


We recommend that you:


Please be aware that some bleeding is expected after your procedure, and you may see slight bleeding or redness in your saliva for up to 48 hours. This is normal and should stop, but if it continues or bleeding becomes heavy, please contact our office. Please also do not accept advice from friends. If you have questions or concerns, or are experiencing discomfort or pain, contact our office to speak with our oral surgeons or a member of our team.
