Some bleeding may occur. Placing a piece of moist gauze over the empty tooth socket and biting down firmly for 60 minutes can help control this.
If swelling occurs you can place ice on your face for 15 minutes in repeated cycles over the first 24 hours. This can help reduce swelling.
Pain and Medications
If you experience pain you might use non-prescription pain relief medications such as paracetamol or Ibuprofen. For more challenging cases, a stronger pain medication or antibiotic may be prescribed.
For most extractions just make sure you do your chewing away from the extraction site. Stay away from hot liquids and alcoholic beverages for 24 hours. A liquid diet may be recommended for 24 hours. Soft foods are best and can include eggs, pasta, and soups. Avoid straws or any forceful spitting.
Brushing and Cleaning
After the extraction avoid brushing the teeth near the extraction site for one day. After that you can resume gentle cleaning. Avoid commercial mouth rinses, as they tend to irritate the site. Beginning 24 hours after the extraction you can rinse with salt water (1/2 teaspoon in a cup of water) after meals and before bed.
Dry socket is when a blood clot fails to form in the socket where the tooth has been extracted or the clot has been dislodged and the healing is significantly delayed.
Following the extraction, instructions will be provided to help reduce the chances of developing dry socket. Dry sockets manifest themselves as a dull throbbing pain, which doesn't appear until three to four days after the extraction. The pain can be moderate to severe and radiate from the extraction area. Dry socket may cause a bad taste or bad breath and the extraction site appears dry.
If you develop a dry socket, we can apply a medicated dressing to the dry socket to sooth the pain.
After a tooth has been extracted there will be a resulting hole in your jawbone where the tooth was. In time, this will smooth and fill in with bone. This process can take many weeks or months. However after 1- 2 weeks you should no longer notice any inconvenience.
