Wisdom Teeth Extraction

Proactively removing the wisdom teeth can keep risk of infection, pain, and overcrowding at bay.

Post-Extraction Care

  • Allocate a day of rest post-extraction to aid recovery.
  • Use ice packs on the cheek near the extraction site to minimize swelling.
  • Follow your dentist's instructions regarding pain management and infection prevention medication.
  • For the initial 24 hours, refrain from any actions that could disturb the blood clot, such as swishing liquid in your mouth, spitting forcefully, or using a straw.
  • Starting after the first day, clean your mouth with a warm, salty water solution multiple times daily to promote healing.
  • Begin with soft, easy-to-eat foods, slowly incorporating harder foods as you heal.
  • Maintain oral hygiene by brushing and flossing, carefully avoiding the extraction area to protect the healing clot.
