The removal of multiple teeth during a single procedure is not an easy task. Generally, the removal of multiple teeth is related to the preparation of the mouth for a denture. If so, the jawbone will need time to heal before the denture can be placed.
If a patient has multiple teeth extracted, the following may be experienced. In the first two days, swelling is likely both inside the mouth and around the eyes. The area around the eyes may also become discolored, which can be helped by a warm compress. The patient may suffer a sore throat because the muscles in the mouth near the extraction site will be irritated. The corners of the mouth may be dry and cracked because the mouth was stretched during surgery.
A follow-up appointment with your dentist is usually needed within 48 hours. Discuss any lingering post-surgery symptoms at that time.
