Among the possible procedures you may have done at PMDC Dental is having a wisdom tooth removed. This is a fairly common procedure, and as is the case with all surgeries, it there are some things you can do to help with your recovery. Doing so will help promote healing and keep your discomfort level to a minimum.
One thing to keep in mind in the immediate aftermath of having the wisdom tooth removed is to not disturb the area where the surgery was performed. This means not probing it with your tongue, and trying to keep any food you eat away from the area as much as possible. You can still brush your teeth, but do so gently so as not to disturb the area where the tooth was. This is a very sensitive time for that area, and disturbing it may cause it to open and begin bleeding, which can increase the risk of infection and draw out the time it takes to heal.
Avoid things like smoking and eating hard, crunchy foods for the first week after the surgery. Smoking can make the area around where the tooth was uncomfortable, and can slow down the healing process. Meanwhile, hard or crunchy foods could cause significant pain or bleeding if they touch thee area where the surgery was performed. Stick to soft foods to lower the chances of any bleeding occurring.
It is possible that bleeding will occur anyways in the first couple of days after the surgery, even if you take the necessary precautions to prevent it. Should that occur, place a gauze pack over the area and bite down. If the bleeding is persistent, replace the gauze pack with a new one every 30 to 45 minutes.
Another likely occurrence is swelling. If you do experience swelling, it is best to place an ice pack on your face around the area where the surgery was performed. Keep the ice pack on the area for about 20 minutes, then take it off for about 20 minutes, then place it back on for another 20 minutes. Do this three or four times daily for the first few days after the surgery.
