Safe Tooth Extractions for Children


Use over-the-counter or prescribed pain reliever if recommended by the dentist.

Give your child soft foods for the first 24 hours after their extraction.

DO NOT allow your child to drink from a straw, rinse their mouths out, spit, or brush that area for at least 24 hours after tooth removal. This could dislodge the blood clot and cause a very painful issue called dry socket.

Place an ice pack wrapped in a towel over the area for about 20 minutes to relieve swelling and discomfort.

Immediately call our office if your child experiences fever, immense pain, or chills.
