While the removal of one or two teeth is a fairly simple process, multiple teeth extraction becomes more of an issue and requires greater care. This requires the reshaping of the jawbone to accommodate the change in dental structure.
Patients may experience the following effects after a multiple extraction procedure:
- Swelling in the mouth as well as in the area around the eyes
- Possible discoloration near the eye area that can be treated at home with a warm compress
- You may experience a sore throat as a result of the loosened muscles at the extraction site
- The corner tips of your mouth may feel dry and cracked due to the mouth having been stretched wide during the extraction procedure
It is recommended that you schedule a follow-up appointment at your dental clinic to consult your dentist about any other after-effects you may be experiencing.
