Rest assured that you will receive ample advice from us on how to take care of your mouth and gum after a tooth extraction so that you achieve trouble-free healing. Here are some useful general tips:
- For the first 24 hours after a tooth extraction avoid eating hot food and do not smoke or drink alcohol.
- During the first 24 hours, refrain from rinsing your mouth. Thereafter, gently rinse your mouth with lukewarm saltwater by putting half a teaspoon of salt into a cup of water.
- You can brush and floss the rest of your teeth normally.
- Should you feel soreness, you can take regular over-the-counter pain tablets.
In case you feel pain after the passage of few days after the extraction, we recommend that you come back to us as early as possible so we can help you remove the soreness.
If you have a tooth that is causing you pain, then you should seek a consultation with us. We can help you through a treatment that helps you keep the tooth without the pain. But if a tooth extraction is the best option, then we will ensure that we keep you comfortable throughout the procedure.
