Swelling and Pain:

Mild swelling and discomfort are normal occurrences following some dental  procedures. If your child experiences any significant swelling or moderate to severe pain, please give our office a call so that we can address it. 

Diet and Other Limitations: 

Following dental treatment, especially dental extractions, your child’s diet should initially consist of soft foods (scrambled eggs, jello, pudding, smoothies) and clear non-carbonated beverages (water, sugar free sports drinks). They should avoid eating crunchy or sticky foods that might harm the treated area.
