Here are some tips to follow to make recovery easier:
• Avoid food and other irritants that might prevent normal healing.
• Do not smoke or rinse your mouth for 24 hours.
• Avoid drinking through a straw for 24 hours.
• Follow all instructions from dental staff.
If swelling occurs, apply a cold cloth or an ice bag and call us right away. Pain medication may be prescribed if necessary. You should brush and floss your other teeth as usual; just use extreme caution when cleaning the teeth next to the recently removed tooth while the area heals.
