Take it Easy After Tooth Extraction

Posted on March 27th, 2020

At Westpark Pediatric Dentistry, we’re here to help you as you teach your little ones how to care for their growing and changing smiles. Sometimes our combined efforts will prevent them from needing dental treatment beyond cleanings, fluoride treatments, and sealants, but other times we might recommend extraction to get them back on track for better oral health.

We know that’s not what any parent wants to hear, but Dr. Malije Onwueme will do everything in their power to make the process as comfortable as possible.

Homecare Instructions

Your child’s aftercare won’t look too different from what we’d recommend for you—no strenuous activity for at least 24 hours post-extraction, and you’ll want to have gauze on hand.

If you have additional questions or concerns, don’t hesitate to contact your Richmond pediatric dentist. We hope your young one is back to smiling happily and healthily in no time!
