We are using special dental instruments – surgical or classical, depending on the type of tooth extraction procedure. In the first case, the tooth is removed using a small incision in the gums or hiding the bone, in the second – by loosening the tooth a little and quickly pulling out the tooth
without unpleasant consequences. After the surgery, the dentist will tell you what is recommended to do for a quick healing process and what not to do to avoid problems.
– You should not eat for several hours after the procedure. This can damage the gum surface that is not yet tightened and cause infection.
– Closely monitor the place where the tooth was – and if it bleeds heavily, consult a doctor.
– You can take pain relievers if needed.
– Do not drink with a straw, smoke, or eat hot food. All of these actions can help dissolve the blood clot that usually forms in the socket after pulling out a tooth, which can lead to pain or an increase in the healing time of the gums.
Also, if it was a surgical tooth extraction, you should not use a hard toothbrush or illuminated mouthwash.
- – Take it easy. Rest at home, avoiding physical activity.
- – Use ice. Apply ice packs to your face for 15 minutes on and then 15 minutes off to keep swelling down.
- – Eat soft foods.
- – Take prescribed antibiotics.
- – Keep your mouth clean.
- – Brush carefully.
- – Eat foods rich in vitamin A and C.
