After a Tooth Extraction or Multiple Extractions

Please refer to the instructions for ‘After Wisdom Teeth Removal’ as they are very applicable.

Also note that the removal of multiple teeth can be different than the removal of one or two teeth. Some bone may need to be shaped and smoothed prior to the insertion of a denture.

If immediate dentures have been inserted, sore spots may develop. In most cases, your dentist will see you within 24-48 hours after surgery and make the necessary adjustments to relieve those sore spots. Failure to do so may result in severe denture sores, which may prolong the healing process.
