Surgical Instructions – After Impacted Tooth

A tooth becomes impacted when there is not enough room to accommodate the space in the dental arch and growth becomes impossible.  After surgery to remove an impacted tooth, mild discomfort and some swelling is expected. This is part of the process and should not alarm you. You may use cold compresses to alleviate the swelling. In addition, your doctor will prescribe pain medication, which should be taken as directed. Patients are also advised to favor the extraction area and modify their diet for a few days to allow for healing.

What our patients say

I used to be a very anxious patient, but Grayhills & Mohip Dental changed that. Both dentists are experienced, professional, and have incredible personalities. The technology is off the charts, and you’re able to watch satellite TV while you get your teeth cleaned. Their laser technology can allow you to get a filling without injections. Highly recommend.

I have always hated and feared going to the dentist, not the people, just having to go. However, after a few minutes here, I was totally put at ease. The office is beautiful, Dr. Mohip was wonderful, and the entire staff was top notch!! NOT a place I want to frequent, but when the time comes, this is where I’ll go! Thank you!

Very pleased. I was referred by my family doctor and this was a very good choice. Dr. G was very pleasant. His staff was super friendly. Very little waiting time in the waiting room. I have NO pain tolerance and I felt nothing. The prices were good. The office was very clean. Great experience.
