How can I prevent the blood clot from coming out too soon after a wisdom tooth extraction?

How can I prevent the blood clot from coming out too soon after a wisdom tooth extraction?

Common Sense, Really: The first thing is to leave it alone. Don't mess with it, don't play with it, don't brush it, don't swish vigorously around it. Also, avoid tobacco, alcohol, & nicotine, as these can cause the clot to dissolve and be lost. Avoid hard, crunchy foods. If you lose the clot, healing will be impaired & delayed, and it might be quite painful. So, just give it time and allow your body to heal properly. ...Read more
