Is there follow-up required for tooth removal and extraction?

Whether follow up is needed varies upon your situation and your dentist can best advise. It is important to closely follow the post extraction care regimen that your dentist provides in order to avoid any complications. Should you experience pain, swelling or bleeding, then it will be necessary to see your dentist for additional follow up care.

In some cases, you may need to attend follow up visits for your tooth removal and extraction, but in some cases you may not. This will depend on the type of stitches that your dentist or oral surgeon uses and whether you experience any complications from the surgery. If you have regular stitches that do not dissolve over time, then you will need to schedule an appointment to have them removed. Additionally, if you experience pain, fever, or other complications after your surgery, you should make an appointment with your dentist or oral surgeon so they can help fix these problems.
