After Tooth Extraction

In order to halt the bleeding and initiate the healing process following tooth extraction, it is crucial that a blood clot form. Immediately after insertion, bite the gauze pad for 30-45 minutes. If the bleeding or seeping doesn’t stop after 30 minutes, bite down hard on another gauze pad. The blood flow may need to be reduced by repeating this procedure multiple times.

Once the clot has formed, it is important that it does not interfere with the bleeding or leak. Do not brush your teeth vigorously, smoke weed, smoke, drink alcohol or brush your teeth near the extraction site for 72 hours.These activities can cause fractures or damage to the gums, preventing healing. Limit strenuous exercise for the next 24 hours, as this can raise blood pressure and cause more bleeding at the extraction site.

You may feel some discomfort and some swelling after the tooth extraction. Ice packs or uncoated frozen peas or corn will cause severe swelling when applied to the area. Take pain medications as prescribed. The swelling usually subsides after 48 hours.

Use pain medication as directed. If the medicine doesn’t seem to be helping, give our office a call. If antibiotics are prescribed, take them for the entire recommended duration, even after the infection’s symptoms and signs have disappeared. On the day of the extraction, consume plenty of liquids and eat soft, nutrient-rich food. Once you are comfortable, you can resume your regular diet.

It is important to resume such dental procedures after 24 hours. This should include brushing and flossing at least once. This will speed up the healing process and help keep your face fresh and clean.

After a few days you should feel fine and can resume your normal activities. If you have heavy bleeding, severe pain, continued swelling for 2-3 days, or a reaction to the medication, call our office immediately at Brampton Office Phone Number 905-791-1620.
