Be gentle: After a few days a clot will form and it is important to maintain it. Keep the area clean, stay away from hard food and trauma until you can see the area closing up. 1-2 weeks, depending on the individual, the degree of trauma and the conservative nature o the os.. Have your dentist check before if you are concerned, but keep clean and be gentle if not sure.
