Aftercare Guidance

Promoting Healing and Comfort

We’re dedicated to ensuring a smooth and comfortable recovery process for your child. Here’s what to expect after a tooth extraction:


Immediate Post-Extraction Care

Gauze Placement

Gently bite down on the provided gauze to control bleeding. Change it as needed.


Encourage your child to take it easy for the rest of the day.


Managing Discomfort

Pain Management

Administer over-the-counter pain relievers as directed by our team.

Cold Compress

Apply a cold compress to the cheek to reduce swelling and discomfort.


Oral Hygiene

Careful Cleaning

Have your child avoid cleaning near the extraction site for 24 hours after the procedure, while continuing to brush and floss their other teeth as usual.

The next day, the child can start normally cleaning the teeth near the extraction site and should gently rinse their mouth daily with warm, salted water to prevent infection and promote healing.


Diet and Nutrition

Soft Diet

Offer soft foods that don’t require vigorous chewing.

Avoid Straws

Discourage the use of straws, as they can dislodge the blood clot.


Follow-Up Appointments

Scheduled Check-up

Ensure your child attends any follow-up appointments as scheduled for proper healing assessment.
