Be gentle


immediately after, avoid hard "swishing"/rinsing of mouth as you may dislodge clot. brush xtra gently or you may want to avoid the area for a day. eat softer foods (i recommend pts keep foods/liquids at room temperature -at least the first 1-2 days). you may have other/addl instructions depending on the severity of the extraction(s)/whether sutures (stitches) are used or not. check with your doc

Granulation tissue


Granulation tissue is the pink, fleshy type tissue that replaces a blood clot in extraction sockets. It grows from the base of a socket and fills the hole where the tooth was to protect the underlying new bone growth. Do not play or remove this tissue - it is a good thing and helps to keep you painfree while the healing is taking place.

3 days after wisdom teeth extraction, bottom left of my mouth still very swollen. Normal?

Answered by:
Dr. Daniel Quon
Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery

It can be


Postoperative swelling following the removal of teeth may actually increase in size for the first two to three days, and will usually reach its maximum by the third postoperative day. It is not uncommon for patients to have more swelling with the removal of wisdom teeth in the lower jaw than the upper jaw.

No, not normal!


The mandibular nerve runs in close proximity to many wisdom teeth. It can be just temporarily traumatized or severed and possibly permanently damaged. Both issues can express themselves with "numbness" . While not a typical surgical outcome, it can happen. Advise your dentist of the issue. They may have more information about what occurred during your extraction.
