An Extraction is a type of oral surgery that is performed to remove a decayed or severely damaged tooth that cannot be saved. It may also be performed to relieve crowding of teeth.

There are many reasons why surgical tooth extraction may occur with your dentist in Sheffield.
After a tooth extraction, you may notice some bleeding. This is quite normal, and your dentist will make sure that it stops after a while. A blot clot should form at the extraction point. Try not to dislodge the clot, if possible, to avoid drying out the area.
Your mouth may temporarily feel a little sore once the anaesthetic wears off, but this should only last for a day or two. Use an icepack for short periods if required to reduce any swelling.
After a tooth extraction, avoid drinking hot drinks, smoking, using mouthwash or brushing the extraction site for the first couple of days.
