Post Operative Instructions

Extraction wounds heal quickly and without complications if you take simple precautions. A blood clot must form in the tooth socket and remain there for the area to heal. IT IS IMPORTANT NOT TO DISTURB THE CLOT!

DO NOT SMOKE, do not rinse vigorously, and do not use a straw for two days.

Rest or reduce activity for a couple of days.

Keep steady pressure on the gauze for about 45 minutes. You may carefully change soggy gauze and then discontinue once bleeding has stopped. (Slight oozing for a couple of days is normal, if heavy bleeding persists for more than one night, contact the dentist.

Don't bother the healing area with your tongue, this will only slow the healing process.

Expect some swelling, this can be reduced by applying a cold pack to the area immediately after arriving home. This will also aid in reducing discomfort.

It is very important to keep your mouth clean and avoid bacteria. Continue to floss and brush the rest of your mouth regularly.

After two days you may rinse gently with a warm salt-water mixture. This will sooth the wound and clean food of the area.

Avoid alcohol, carbonated beverages, and hot or spicy foods/drinks.

Healing time and degree of discomfort will vary from person to person. Pain medication prescribed should be taken according to instructions.

Remember, you have just had surgery-pamper yourself.
