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.

How severe?


I have first hand experienced getting a numbness in my tongue when My wisdom tooth was extracted at age 17. Half of my tongue was numb for few years and now after 23 years it is much better still not back to normal. It all depends on how severely the nerve is damaged. Sometimes it is very transient lasting from days to months and sometimes for many years. I hope no one ever experiences it!

Little over a week


It takes 2 weeks for healing of tissue and so after wisdom teeth extraction any discomfort and swelling should get less and less and mostly gone in 2 weeks post op if there is no secondary infection. If swelling stays the same or gets larger please see your dentist ASAP

complexity of removal and degree of infection or impaction influence healing, but most patients are functional within a week while healing continues. Get it behind you while you are young and healthy

Using ice 20 min on and 20 min off for the first three days after removal and sleeping at 45 degrees (four firm pillows) for the first three days helps prevent any swelling. Swelling should last about a week or less if it occurs.

Premedication


Premedication starting a day before wisdom teeth extractions with a mild steroid (decadron) and an anti-inflammatory (Motrin) will do wonders at keeping swelling and pain under control after the procedure. Review this with your treating dentist.

How long to smoke after wisdom teeth extraction?

Well, the best answer is that you should never smoke again! However, for a simple wisdom tooth extraction, about 5 days is usually ideal. If the extraction was surgical and complicated, a little longer would be helpful. Most people, however, start smoking the same day, regardless of what their doctor said, & they often have problems healing. Do your best to stop for as long as you can! Good luck.
