Here are information after the teeth extraction that may be helpful to you


Sometimes, you need to remove teeth due to decay, disease, or trauma. When you get a tooth removed, we call it an extraction.

It’s natural that changes will occur in your mouth after the procedure. Here are some guidelines to help promote healing, prevent complications, and make you more comfortable while you recover.

Here are some helpful information for you after teeth extractions.





Your dentist may place a gauze pack on the extraction site to limit bleeding. This will also help a blood clot to form, which is necessary for normal healing. You should leave gauze pack in place for 30 to 45 minutes after you leave dentist’s office.

Do not chew on the pack. There may be some bleeding or oozing after you remove the pack. If so, here’s what to do:

  • Fold a piece of clean gauze into a pad thick enough to bite on. Dampen the pad with clean, warm water and place it directly on the extraction site.
  • Do not suck on the extraction site or disturb it with your tongue.
  • A slight amount of blood may leak from the extraction site until a clot forms. However, if heavy bleeding continues, call your Dentist open on Saturday near Philadelphia. (Remember, though, that a little bit of blood mixed with saliva can look like a lot of bleeding.)


How to clean your mouth after your tooth is removed


Day of procedure:

  • Do not clean the teeth next to the healing tooth socket for the rest of the day.
  • You should still brush and floss your other teeth.
  • You can also brush your tongue. This can help get rid of the bad breath and unpleasant taste that are common after the extraction.


Day after procedure:

  • Begin cleaning the teeth next to the healing tooth socket.
  • Gently rinse your mouth with warm salt water after meals to keep  bits of food out of the extraction site.
  • To make  a salt water rinse: mix half a teaspoon of salt in 1 cup of warm water.
  • Try not to rinse your mouth too hard because this could loosen the blood clot. If you have a high blood pressure, discuss with your dentist whether you should rinse with salt water.
  • Avoid using a mouthwash during this early healing period or until your dentist tells you when you are able to.



Take pain medication only as directed by your dentist

  • If your dentist has prescribed medicine to control pain and inflammation, or to prevent infection, use it only as directed.
  • If the pain medication prescribed does not seem to work for you, don’t take more pills or take them more often than directed, call your dentist.



Swelling and pain are normal after a tooth extraction.

To help reduce swelling and pain:

  • Try applying a cold compress to your face, like an ice pack or cold, moist cloth.
  • Your dentist may give you specific instructions on how long and how often to use a cold compress.



Call your dentist right away if you have any of these issues

  • Fever, nausea, vomiting
  • Ongoing or severe pain, swelling, or bleeding.
  • Pain that gets worse with time instead of better

If you cannot reach your Dentist open on Saturday near Philadelphia, go to a hospital emergency room.



Eating and drinking


Day of procedure:

  • Drink lots of liquids and eat soft, nutritious foods.
  • Avoid hot liquids and alcoholic beverages.
  • Do not use a straw, as this can disturb the blood clot.

Day after procedure:

  • Begin eating foods the next day or as soon as you can chew comfortably.
  • For the first few days, try to chew food on the side opposite the extraction site.
  • When it feels comfortable, you should resume chewing on both sides of your mouth.


Other things you should know

  • Avoid alcoholic beverages or mouthwash that has alcohol in it for 24 hours.
  • Limit physical activity like exercise or lifting heavy objects for 24 hours after the extraction. This will reduce bleeding and help the blood clot to form.
  • If you do get a dry socket, report it to your dentist right away. A dressing may be placed in the socket to protect it until the socket heals and to reduce any pain.
