A tooth becomes impacted when there is not enough room to accommodate the space in the dental arch and growth becomes impossible. After surgery to remove an impacted tooth, mild discomfort and some swelling is expected. 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.

"Thank you Dr. Choby for your tremendous professionalism. I am so very happy that I made the decision to have dental implants!!! M. A."
"Dr. Choby and Staff.
Just a note to tell you that I rate this dental office number one. All of you are upbeat and kind making the environment comfortable and relaxing. This is rare. I have been to numerous dental offices where they have been poorly run and unfriendly etc. Will leave this to your imagination! Keep up the good work. Thank you."
