The number of answers this doctor has agreed with.
A 21-year-old male asked:
No: Try a moist tea bag - dip in cool water. (Must use Black or Orange pekoe tea like Lipton or English Breakfast) NOT herbal or green tea. Put it DIRECTLY on extraction site and place cotton gauze on top for thickness and have her bite down with pressure for at least 20 minutes, repeat. If it does not stop then call dentist ASAP.
A 34-year-old male asked:
Not a problem: You are concerned so use a Neti pot and "flush" your nose and sinus with saline (salt) rinse or get Ocean saline spray to use in your nostrils.
A 42-year-old female asked:
Root canal ok: Only necessary treatment such as root canal if you are in pain. If not in pain, then wait until the meds have treated the thrush (about 14 days).
