How long will it take to recover from a tooth extraction?

Recovery from a tooth extraction is fairly quick. But, there are a few things you can do to help ensure a speedy and comfortable recovery. 


Most people will experience some level of discomfort after having a tooth extracted, but the good news is that the recovery process is usually short. First, be sure to follow Dr. Anderson's instructions for caring for the extraction site. This usually involves taking it easy for a day or two, gently rinsing the area with warm water, and avoiding hard or crunchy foods. You may also need to take over-the-counter pain medication as directed. 


So, if you're wondering how long it will take to recover from a tooth extraction, the answer is: it depends. In most cases, the discomfort from an extraction should start to subside within a couple of days. However, it can take up to a week for the extraction site to fully heal. But with proper care, you should be able to fully recover from your tooth extraction in no time.
