What to Do During Baby Teeth Extractions

Updated: Dec 18, 2018

Even though tooth extraction can be made stress free during the procedure, it can turn painful post the procedure. Control of pain and prevention of infection after tooth extraction is important.

Key takeaways:

Tooth extraction is associated with bleeding. The dentist will use a small piece of gauze to prevent excessive bleeding.

Your child should get some rest after tooth extraction to avoid strenuous exercise.

You should keep the mouth clean by swishing some saline water. It will help to prevent infection at the site of extraction.

You can also give your child painkillers such as Tylenol and Ibuprofen after the blood clot has formed. However, remember not to give your child any pain medication before the extraction appointment as it can lead to blood clotting issues.
