This is part of the process and should not alarm you. You may use cold compresses to alleviate the swelling. In addition, your doctor will prescribe pain medication, which should be taken as directed. Patients are also advised to favor the extraction area and modify their diet for a few days to allow for healing.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/3″ css=”.vc_custom_1539122427614{border-left-width: 20px !important;padding-top: 20px !important;padding-right: 20px !important;padding-bottom: 20px !important;padding-left: 20px !important;background-color: #ffffff !important;border-left-color: #e0fffb !important;border-left-style: solid !important;}”][vc_column_text css=”.vc_custom_1597873269216{padding-top: 20px !important;}”][/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
