It’s important to us that you go away knowing how to look after your mouth after an extraction. As well as going through this with you in person, we will give you jargon-free aftercare instructions. This will consolidate your discussions had with Dr Modgill, to ensure a fast and smooth recovery. The extraction site should be fully healed within a matter of weeks.
If you have opted for a dental implant post-extraction, PRGF (plasma rich growth factor) can be used to isolate the proteins that are naturally produced by the body during the healing process, which are then applied towards the end of treatment to kick-start the healing process. This cutting-edge procedure has been used extensively in maxillofacial, cardiac, plastic and reconstructive surgery for many years and has been proven to accelerate the healing process and reduce pain and inflammation.
