How to Care for Your Gums After an Extracted Tooth Heals
Posted on 10/30/2019 by Moyer Office
Now that you have had your tooth pulled, the worst part is over. All of that anxiety can go away. Now you just have to concentrate on the healing process. That part, actually, is quite simple. You just have to look at it the way you would look at any wound that is healing. Once your gum stops bleeding a blood clot forms over the extraction site. This is the same as the scab that forms on a wound elsewhere on your body. Just like those wounds, you want to leave it alone until the wound starts healing. On the first day, that means that you should take it easy. Try to rest and keep your head elevated to avoid bleeding more. Very important is to avoid eating or drinking anything that is hot until the anesthetic wears off. If you do eat be very conscious of your cheek as many people will accidentally bite it when they eat because they can't feel it. What Next? After the first day and once the anesthetic wears off, you are ready to start healing. After the first 24 hours, you can use mouthwash but don't swish too vigorously. You don't want to dislodge the clot. You should have already brushed your teeth at least once, but for a couple of days be very careful around the extraction site when you brush. Avoid alcohol, as that may start the bleeding up and cigarettes should be avoided as long as possible because it increases our blood pressure which may start the bleeding up. You may notice some bleeding for a couple of days. If you do, fold a piece of cotton material and place it over the extraction site. Bite down on it (not hard) for about 15 minutes. If it hasn't stopped bleeding after a couple of hours definitely give us a call. If you have any pain you can take over-the-counter painkillers, but don't take aspirin because it slightly thins the blood. You can rinse your mouth with salt water several times a day which will help the healing process. If you have any questions, contact us....
