As you heal from your surgery, follow
your dentist's instructions on:
Bleeding.Some oozing of blood may occur the first day
after wisdom tooth removal. Try to avoid excessive spitting so that you don't
dislodge the blood clot from the socket. Replace gauze over the extraction site
as directed by your dentist or oral surgeon.
Pain management.You may be able to manage
pain with an over-the-counter pain reliever, such as acetaminophen (Tylenol,
others), or a prescription pain medication from your dentist or oral surgeon.
Prescription pain medication may be especially helpful if bone has been removed
during the procedure. Holding a cold pack against your jaw also may relieve
Swelling and bruising.Use an ice pack as
directed by your dentist or surgeon. Any swelling of your cheeks usually
improves in two or three days. Bruising may take several more days to resolve.
Activity.After your surgery, plan to rest for the
remainder of the day. Resume normal activities the next day, but for at least a
week, avoid strenuous activity that might result in losing the blood clot from
Beverages.Drink lots of water after
the surgery. Don't drink alcoholic, caffeinated, carbonated or hot beverages in
the first 24 hours. Don't drink with a straw for at least a week because the
sucking action can dislodge the blood clot from the socket.
Food.Eat only soft foods, such as yogurt or
applesauce, for the first 24 hours. Start eating semisoft foods when you can
tolerate them. Avoid hard, chewy, hot or spicy foods that might get stuck in
the socket or irritate the wound.
Cleaning your mouth.Don't brush your teeth,
rinse your mouth, spit or use mouthwash during the first 24 hours after
surgery. Typically you'll be told to resume brushing your teeth after the first
24 hours. Be particularly gentle near the surgical wound when brushing and
gently rinse your mouth with warm salt water every two hours and after meals
for a week.
Tobacco use.If you smoke, don't do so
for at least 72 hours after surgery — and wait longer than that if possible. If
you chew tobacco, don't use it for at least a week. Using tobacco products
after oral surgery can delay healing and increase the risk of complications.
Stitches.You may have stitches that dissolve within a
few weeks or no stitches at all. If your stitches need to be removed, schedule
an appointment to have them taken out.
