What to Expect after Your Tooth Extraction
Avoid disturbing the area where the wound exists to prevent unnecessary bleeding or reopening of the wound. It will heal faster if you leave it alone.
Avoid using any type of swishing with liquids for a minimum of twenty-four hours as this may cause the blood clot to dissipate and lead to renewed bleeding. You may use a salt-water rinse after a full day has passed if recommended by your dentist. Do not use straws to drink your beverages as this could also destroy the blood clot.
Control of the Bleeding
If you accidentally cause the opening to begin bleeding, you can take a fresh piece of gauze, cover the opening, bite down on the gauze, and keep it there for twenty minutes. If the bleeding does not stop after that, continue the process for the next hour or so, switching out the used gauze for fresh pads every twenty minutes. If the bleeding does not stop after an hour, please contact us.
