On the day of treatment

On the days following treatment

If the pain persists, spreads and becomes severe, it is probable that you have developed an infection at the extraction site.

This complication can arise with some patients, and is best prevented by vigorously following the precautions listed above. This can be quite painful. Vigorously bathe the site with salt water and take pain-relieving medication.

Please contact the practice for treatment of this infection.

The infection is normally due to a blood clot failing to seal the wound. This allows food and bacteria to invade the site.
