"I've never had a better dental experience."
Anyone who needs a dentist should go see Stubbs Dental. I went in with tooth pain and had to have teeth removed. I expected pain and discomfort, but that didn't happen. I was so surprised! And the whole experience in the office was so nice. The staff was so very kind, and they talked to me, not at me. While I was healing, the instructions were easy to follow. I've never had a better dental experience. Thank you, Layton Stubbs Dental.Read More Google Reviews

While some mild swelling and bruising is normal, most visible side effects will subside after a week. Get plenty of rest in the first 24 hours after your treatment. Meanwhile, make sure to carefully follow your post-op instructions to ensure a safe and timely recovery:
Bleeding and Swelling
You can expect some swelling and bleeding around the gums following your procedure. Avoid rinsing your mouth or brushing your teeth for at least 24 hours to allow blood clots to form around the extraction sites.
Most patients will experience some discomfort and soreness in the first few days, which can usually be managed with over-the-counter pain medication. Ice the area to reduce swelling and change the gauze according to the doctor's instructions.
Food and Drink
Eat soup, yogurt, and other very soft foods at first. You can resume eating soft solid foods a few days after the procedure as long as it doesn't cause you too much discomfort. Avoid drinking from a straw for a week or two, since this can dislodge the blood clots and interfere with your healing.
While every patient heals differently, many people can return to school or work a day or two following extractions. Your dentist will determine when it is safe to resume exercise and other strenuous activity.
