Your mouth is very sensitive and has a dense blanket of nerve endings, so it’s common to experience some discomfort or soreness right after your procedure. In most cases, this clears up in a few hours and is nothing to worry about.
At Palatine Complete Dental, our goal is to do everything we can to minimize any discomfort. We will also inform you about any ways to reduce your pain during and after your procedure.
We make procedures like root canals, implant placement, or bone grafting very comfortable, but you can expect to feel some soreness for a day or two following your appointment. This is common, and most of our patients find relief with an over-the-counter pain reliever like ibuprofen that also helps reduce inflammation.
If you have a tooth extraction, there are several steps you need to take following your procedure, and we will provide instructions for self-care at home. It’s essential to follow these steps carefully to minimize discomfort, speed healing, and prevent complications.
With any procedure we provide at our Palatine dental office, Dr. Unti will answer all your questions and explain what’s involved beforehand, so you know what to expect. You can also take comfort in the fact that you are receiving your treatment from genuinely caring professionals who empathize with your concerns.
Our patients are like family to us, and we’ll make sure that you get the comfortable, stress-free care you need to maintain a healthy smile. Please call us with your questions or to schedule an appointment.
