The removal of one or two teeth is a simple procedure. Extracting multiple teeth may require that the jawbone be shaped (aveloplasty) to prepare for a denture, implant, bridge, or remove sharp underlying tissue that will casue injury to you. You may experience pain, swelling, and/or bruising after a multiple tooth extraction procedure. Within two to three 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 to one week after surgery to discuss any post surgery symptoms that you are experiencing.
