Wilkes Barre Family Dentist Dr. James C. DeFinnis

Post-wisdom Tooth Extraction with an Expert Dentist in Scranton, PA

“Pulling the errant tooth out will be a necessity, but a skilled general dentist in Scranton, PA, such as Back Mountain Dental’s Dr. James DeFinnis, DMD can counsel you on how to achieve a speedy recovery. The patient can take little steps to this end. For instance, preparing the target tooth for extraction will require frequent brushing and flossing. It is also recommended to avoid smoking to increase the healing factor. A liquid diet may also be necessary.

For the recovery period, your dentist may recommend staying home for a few days. During this time, you need to continue with the liquid diet and take antibiotics, and also replace the gauze pad regularly. A salt-water rinse also works.”
