Follow orders: Follow the post-op instructions by your oral surgeon to reduce the risk of complication.

Usually i advise patients to be careful using straws for the first 2 days after an extraction as the sucking could make the site bleed, but for most people after 4 days it should be fine. ...Read more

Its been 5 days after all 4 of my wisdom teeth have been removed - when can I drink from a straw?

Probably OK: If you have no outward signs of swelling or pain, it should not be a problem... But then again, since you are under the care of an oral surgeon, ask him/her so that no complications occur, since over the internet we cannot tell how difficult the extractions were or what type of wound you have. ...Read more

My both upper wisdom teeth have started breaking and it hurts a lot while i chew or have something cold to drink. Plz help?

See a dentist: If your wisdom are breaking and causing pain, it is probably best to have them removed. But only an examination by a dentist can determine that for sure. And there is no easy solution to correct broken and painful teeth. To avoid infection, further damage to your teeth, and/or continued and worsening pain, see your dentist as soon as possible! ...Read more
