After your child’s tooth is extracted, we recommend biting on a gauze pad to help stop any bleeding. Once the bleeding is stopped your child should avoid sucking on a straw, or brushing their teeth next to the extraction site for at least 72 hours. This helps to prevent the blood clot from dislodging during the healing process. Your child may have some sensitivity or pain around the extraction site, but this should subside after a day or so. Once the area is healed your child should return to their normal hygiene routine to keep their teeth healthy and free of plaque. If your child experiences any severe pain or bleeding, please call our office, and we will have you bring them in immediately.
