What are some of the concerns and care necessary after a tooth is pulled?

Depending on where the tooth is positioned and depending on the patient, sometimes it’s important to place a bone grafting within the socket of the tooth, after a tooth is pulled. And, again, that’s to help decrease the amount of shrinkage that occurs because as the socket heals the bone kind of fills in on itself because now you don’t have a tooth that’s holding that space anymore. So in the very least place some sutures, or some stitches, to re-approximate the tissue over top of the socket to decrease the likelihood of any sort of food packing in there.

But as far as postoperative care goes certainly pain killers are often prescribed, again depending on the case, in a lot of cases antibiotics are also prescribed and then as far as the patient goes it’s really important for them to follow their postoperative instructions to a T. And the postoperative instructions are always given to them on a written piece of paper and myself or my assistant will go over the patient’s instructions as well verbally, so that they understand how important it is to follow them to decrease the likelihood for pain and increase the time for healing.

Often ice packs on the outside of the face depending on the side of which the tooth was extracted to decrease the likelihood of any swelling or bruising. And rinsing with saltwater rinses in the area very gently. Avoiding for the first couple days, sucking through a straw or spitting or smoking cigarettes, anything that’s going to create negative pressure in the mouth will potentially dislodge the clot. And the clot is critical to start the healing process, obviously.

If the clot is dislodged then quite often the patient will develop a condition called dry socket. And dry socket is not fun, it’s not something you want. More times than not it’s more excruciating than the actual pain that the patient presented with initially. So it’s really important that they take these things seriously so that they avoid any sort of situation like that.

And then just, in a lot of cases, sticking to a soft diet and avoiding things like rice, things that are little particles that can potentially get down into the socket and irritate or get lodged down in there and cause more problems. So, again, following the postoperative care instructions is really critical to the success or at least to the length of pain and the degree of pain for the patient. Are you there?

“Dr John has been fantastic and I’m so glad that I have someone that I can truly trust with my dental care! I needed a new crown and bridge and couldn’t be happier with the results. They look so natural and perfect for my smile! I’ve also had a whitening treatment in house and was extremely pleased with the results. Their staff are all very friendly and caring, at both locations. I also appreciate how efficient and flexible they are with appointments.”

"I absolutely love this office. Starting from the front desk girls, they are always so friendly. I love having my teeth cleaned by Olga, she’s so gentle and yet so good, makes you want to go back for cleanings more often. Dr John is very nice, and professional. This office is great at educating you when dental work is needed, but never tries to pressure you into getting it done. Thank you for always making me feel welcome and cared for."

"JJ Dental is AWESOME, I promise after your first cleaning you’ll be hooked. Dr John is extremely talented, his service is excellent and the staff is very friendly. The best part is that I never feel pressured to get any work done, I am given my options but also told “ if it doesn’t hurt we can hold off for now.” I recommend them to anyone who is looking for a new dentist."

Insurance & Financing

At JJ Dental our insurance specialists deal directly with your insurance providers.

A thorough breakdown of your benefits allows us to give you the most accurate coverage estimate possible. Based on this information we can provide you with a plan that maximizes your benefits and minimizes your out of pocket expense. Once treatment has begun we will even submit the insurance claims on your behalf to eliminate any headaches for you. (See Accepted Insurance)

While a majority of insurance plans will cover a large percentage of preventative and restorative care, they rarely cover cosmetic procedures. For any procedures not covered or beyond your plans maximum benefit, we provide several payment options including cash, check, money order, and major credit cards. We also offer flexible, no interest monthly installment plans through care credit and lending club that help you get the treatment you need without a financial burden.


We believe that there are three main considerations that you should be aware of when choosing a dentist.

Does the dentist care deeply about you and your dental health?

Is the dentist skilled enough to consistently provide the highest quality of dental care?

Does the dentist have the team and the tools available to provide you with the highest quality of care?

At JJ Dental our entire team is proud to be able to answer yes to each of these critical questions.
