Extraction’s Possible Complications
Be aware after your procedure that there are potential complications during or after the extraction of a tooth in Glendale. There is a chance for infection, tenderness is common around the extraction and anesthetic injection site, prolonged bleeding may occur, neighboring teeth or their fillings and crowns may loosen, and residents of Glendale may experience dry socket. Dry socket occurs when the blood clot protecting your nerves and jaw bone never develops correctly or is dislodged. Avoiding sucking through a straw, smoking, and alerting your dentist if you are taking any medications or supplements that may affect your body’s ability to clot can assist in preventing these issues.
