Aftercare for Wisdom Tooth Extraction
After your wisdom teeth are extracted, you can expect some bleeding, some swelling, and a lot of pain.
You should eat soft foods and drink lots of water. Avoid hot foods or drinks, alcohol, and hard, crunchy foods. Ask your dentist for a recommendation for pain medication. Rinse your mouth with salt water regularly. And use an ice pack intermittently to relieve any pain, swelling, and bleeding.
Take steps to maintain good oral health. Brush your teeth at least twice a day and floss daily. See your dentist regularly for checkups and cleanings. Schedule an appointment right away if you experience any complications like pain or bleeding.
