Here are some helpful tips that will help you return to regular activities and recover quickly. Read on to discover ways to heal after wisdom teeth extraction.
Following your wisdom tooth removal, chew a gauze piece for 30-60 minutes around the location of your extraction. The gauze should stop the bleeding. Your mouth will be producing plenty of saliva during this period, which turns to red after mixing with blood resulting from removal. You should be aware that you’re not bleeding as much as it appears. This can happen again until you have stopped bleeding.
Be careful not to spit out or chew with straws. The result is bleeding, and delay healing at the site of the extraction. It is recommended that for at least 3 days, you should drink your drinking water or juice in the glass, instead of drinking it through a straw.
Smoking or using tobacco during the time following the procedure is another one to avoid. Smoking is much like drinking from a straw. The risk of smoking can cause bleeding, blood clots and even more bleeding.
