What procedures will I need after my tooth removal?

Follow-up procedures depend upon why you were having a tooth removed as well as whether the extraction was successful. If you are having a wisdom tooth removed, or if you are having a tooth removed due to overcrowding, you may not need any other procedures. However, if you are having teeth removed due to trauma, decay, or infection, you may consider having a dental implant, partial dentures, or a bridge. Speak to your surgeon about these options.
