As sedation dentistry becomes more unpopular many dental patients are experiencing the old fashion tooth extraction methods.

 But what happens if you have a tooth extraction the old fashion way and when you get home you experience extreme pain.  Watch out!  There are many complications that you might experience that are worth a phone call to your dentist.

Here are some danger signs to look for:

  • Watch for signs of thick bleeding
  • Watch for dark red blood clots
  • Continued bleeding for more than 45 minutes
  • Extreme pain in jaw or neck
  • Heart palpitations
