Tips for a Speedy Recovery after a tooth extraction…

1.Make sure your appointment is booked on a day you will have some time to rest following the procedure for example- scheduling the surgery for a Friday is a good idea as you will then be able to rest over the weekend.

2.Do some shopping the day before your appointment so that you have some soft foods to eat like soup, yoghurt and or cottage cheese. Also remember to eat foods at room temperature.

3.Ask someone to come with you to the surgery so that they can assist you home afterwards.

4.Once you are back home follow the post-surgical instructions you have been given,carefully.Leave the gauze in place for the correct amount of time your dentist instructed.

5.Rinse your mouth out with salt water which will promote healing and reduce any irritation. Rinse your mouth out gently with the solution and let it drizzle out of your mouth slowly.

6.Don’t use straws to drink with as the suction might interfere with the clotting process and DON’T SMOKE.

7.Take pain medication as prescribed and don’t operate any heavy machinery or drive for at least 24 hours after surgery.

8.Be ready to ask for help from your friends or family while you are recovering. They can help you by answering the phone and keeping you comfortable.

9.If you experience extreme pain or nausea or if the bleeding persists after the first day, get in touch with your dentist for advise
