Introduction: The aim of this study was to evaluate the quality and quantity of postoperative sleep following routine (nonsurgical) dental extraction. Materials and Methods: Participants with the indication of one- or two-teeth extractions under local anesthesia (n = 274) (experimental group) and the control group without any surgical intervention (n = 50) were included in the study. On the next day of extraction, individuals were asked about their routine day and night sleep durations and the day and night sleep durations following dental extraction, in addition to the Richard–Campbell Sleep Scale. The assessments were made regarding gender, age, one or two teeth, maxilla or mandibular, single- or multi-rooted groups. The control group individuals were asked about routine day and night sleep durations in addition to the Richard–Campbell Sleep Scale, too. Results: No difference was found in terms of the sleep quality between the groups. When the sleep durations were compared, it was observed that the sleep durations on the first night after dental extraction (P < 0.05) and total daily (P < 0.05) sleep durations were decreased. No difference was found in terms of sleep duration when the extractions of single-rooted and multi-rooted teeth were compared. When individuals with two-teeth extractions were compared with individuals with single-tooth extractions, it was seen that the night sleep durations of the individuals with two-teeth extractions were decreased (P = 0.017). Age group comparisons showed statistically significant sleep duration changes before extraction but not for after extractions. Conclusion: As a result, we found that the duration of sleep was reduced, although there was no change in the quality of sleep for the first day when the morbidity was most intense after routine nonsurgical dental extraction. And also, it is found that the duration of sleep decreased as the number of extractions increased.
