The removal of one or two teeth is a simple procedure. Extracting multiple teeth requires that the jawbone be shaped to prepare for a denture. You may experience the following after a multiple tooth extraction procedure. Within two 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 Dr. Stucker in one week after surgery to remove the sutures and check the surgical sites. Please follow all instructions outlined in the section "After Extractions". We hope your surgical experience was satisfactory. If you have any questions or problems please contact Dr.'s Stucker or Suri at 631-957-2211.
