Dr. Beata A. Carlson and his whole staff do a fantastic job.They will educate you and I was so glad I removed all of my metal fillings once I was aware of the toxicity of those fillings. Their dental hygienists are wonderful. You will be very pleased by choosing Dr. Beata A. Carlson and her team for your dental care. Everyone is so caring there. Five Stars for sure.

POST-OP INSTRUCTIONS AFTER TOOTH EXTRACTION

After an extraction, its important for a blood clot to form to stop the bleeding and begin the healing process. That’s why we ask you to bite on a gauze pad for 3 hours (unless told otherwise) after the extraction.

After the blood clot forms, it is important to protect it especially for the next 24 hours. DO NOT smoke, spit, suck through a straw, rinse your mouth vigorously, or clean the teeth next to the extraction site.

These activities will dislodge the clot and slow down healing. Limit yourself to calm activities for the first 24 hours. This keeps your blood pressure lower, reduces bleeding and helps the healing process.

After the tooth is extracted you may feel some pain and have some swelling. You can use an ice bag to keep this to a minimum. The swelling usually starts to go down after 48 hours.

Use pain medication only as directed, call the office if it doesn’t seem to be working. If antibiotics are prescribed, continue to take them for the indicated length of time even if all symptoms and signs of infection are gone. Drink lots of fluids and eat ONLY soft nutritious foods on the day of the extraction. Don’t use alcoholic beverages and avoid hot and spicy foods. You can begin eating normally the next day or as soon as its comfortable.

Gently rinse your mouth with warm saltwater three times a day beginning the day after the extraction (a tsp of salt in a cup of warm water, rinse-swish-spit). Also, rinse gently after meals. It helps keep food out of the extraction site. It is very important to resume your normal dental routine after 24 hours; this should include brushing your teeth and tongue and flossing at least once a day. This speeds healing and helps keep your breath and mouth fresh.

Call us right away 727-888-6929 if you have heavy bleeding, severe pain, continued swelling after two or three days, or a reaction to the medication. After a few days you can resume your normal activities.

Happy healing.

I found Dr. Beata A. Carlson's office to be really excellent. Best dental experience I have had in all my years. He is caring and efficient and runs a very organized team. My dental work was excellent and I would recommend his office to anyone needing a holistic caring dentist.

Dr. Beata A. Carlson

A graduate from the University of Maryland, Dr. Beata A. Carlson, is an established professional in dentistry. She is a firm believer in taking on a holistic approach to treating her patients’ dental concerns. It entails a general awareness of the body. It caters to the overall well-being of the patient using natural, biocompatible, and mercury-free dentistry methods instead of ‘spot treatment,’ where solutions are obtained to fix the temporary/surface wound instead of the underlying issue.

This approach promotes healthy living and proper oral care practice for day to day life. Dr. Beata A. Carlson insists on educating her patients on how to engage in such methods to help them achieve a better quality of life.

She invests both time and resources in the latest and most advanced technology to aid in diagnostics and treatment plans for her patients while maintaining a comfortable and relaxing environment.

Dr. Beata A. Carlson is also a member of the International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology, The American Academy of General Dentistry and The American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry.
