How to Properly Care for an Extraction Site

What fills the empty space in your mouth when the dentist removes decayed or broken teeth?
If the space is not filled, the jaw bone can change shape as it heals, causing teeth to shift. If the teeth shift, problems with a patient's bite can develop and affect the way you chew and speak.

Wisdom teeth are the one exception in dentistry. Located in the back of the mouth, wisdom teeth can be removed and the site will heal on its own, usually without complications.

The team at Dentist of Lake Mary recommend that the patient and dentist have a consultation before any extraction is preformed. The dentist will make a recommendation and prepare a treatment plan. Be sure to schedule follow-up appointments as required so the extraction site receives the proper care.
