Tooth Extraction Q & A

What is the recovery period after a tooth extraction?

Since the skilled oral surgeons at San Antonio Surgical Arts use minimally invasive methods to extract teeth and minimize tissue loss, you can expect a quick recovery. Plan on staying home and relaxing the rest of the day after your tooth extraction. Even though you are going to have some initial swelling over the next few days,you can usually return to most of your regular activities within two to three days.

Sometimes sutures are required to close the extraction site. Depending on your specific procedure, they may be dissolvable, or you might need to come into San Antonio Surgical Arts to have them removed. If you need a replacement tooth, such as a bridge or a dental implant, the team schedules you for a follow-up visit a few weeks after your procedure to monitor your progress and design your treatment plan, along with your dentist.
