My 11 year old son had two molar teeth extracted this morning

Customer Question

My 11 year old son had two molar teeth extracted this morning (top and bottom on one side) as part of an orthodontic treatment. The bleeding has stopped and he seems fine. Will he be able to eat pizza at a family meal tomorrow evening - about 32 hours after the extraction finished?

Hi. Should be no problem with the pizza but he should definitely brush his teeth thorougly after every meal and floss.
