Before the extraction, you will be given an anesthetic to reduce your discomfort. Your mouth will remain numb for a few hours
after the extraction. While your mouth is numb, you'll want to be careful not to bite your cheek, lip, or tongue.
After the extraction, do not eat any foods that require chewing while your mouth is numb. The numbness should go
away within a few hours. If it doesn't, contact Dr. Clark.
