How will I feel after the operation?
After the operation, you may have pain and swelling which may last up to one week. Painkillers will be prescribed to help you with the pain, and all instructions for care of the surgery site will be discussed with you prior to you leaving the clinic. The swelling will make it difficult for you to open your mouth wide, and you will need to eat soft foods that don’t require a lot of chewing. Plan to take rest after your extraction so you can allow your body to heal. We review all surgical extraction sites a few days after the treatment to ensure that healing is on track.
