Extraction


Most wisdomm tooth extractions are sutured and there may be pink in the saliva up to 24 hours. Just bite ona tea bag and it should stop, if it doesn't go to a doctor ASAP. If you are getting red in the saliva from active bleeding go to a doctor or hospital immediate

Softer foods


Even though you do not have pain continue to be a bit cautious, especially if you have stitches. Have a sandwich if you can eat this comfortably. Use your common sense when eating during healing.

Possibly


Have the surgeon who extracted the tooth take a look. In the meantime, bite on a sterile gauze for 15 minutes to help control the bleeding.

Less often


If you are talking about changing the small, 2x2 sterile gauze given after your extraction, it is best to limit switching. I hope you were given a written post-surgery instruction, but if not, follow: 1) Keep your hands clean. 2) Fold 2x2 gauze smaller, or into a roll. 3) Place over extraction site, and gently bite down to apply pressure. 4) If bleeding continues, get a post-op check.

Bone infection


A dry socket is infection that develops in the bone socket.

Depends


It depends on the amount of time that has passed since the teeth were removed and the complexity of the procedure. After a week, in most cases it is ok to resume normal activities if ok with the surgeon who did the procedure. The risk of early increased activity is bleeding, infection and dry socket.

A variety from 3rds


Many symptoms occur after wisdom teeth are removed. Swelling, difficulty swallowing, some pain, difficulty opening are just some. You will heal in two weeks usually. If they were infected then longer. Your DDS/DMD is trained to manage the annoying complications, and are happy to do so. But if you have trouble breathing. or you neck is swelling closed GO TO the ER without delay.

Healing


No. The heat generated will not help with healing of the socket from possible dilation . Another factor is you are introducing a contaminant into a new surgical site that is trying to heal. Please try to lead a more healthy lifestyle and avoid illegal drugs. Accept my apologies if you are under a doctor's care and been prescribed for medical purposes.

No


It is not OK to smoke anything after any extraction. It increases the chances of developing a dry socket and increases the chances of an infection.

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
