How Soon After Dental Extraction Will I Be Able To Use Dentures
Brush all your teeth: I advise my patients to brush all of their teeth like they normally do, or are supposed to following surgery. They are advised to avoid brushing over the surgical sites the day of surgery, begin brushing lightly over the surgical sites the next day (after 24 hours) and then brush as usual on the second postoperative day (after 48 hours). They are also advised to avoid spitting the first 24 hrs. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
As soon as you can: After wisdom tooth surgery,you have pain, restricted opening of the mouth & a swelling.This does not allow you to open the mouth wide enough to place a tooth brush in the mouth to do proper brushing.Once you can open the mouth wide enough,which is usually 2nd or 3rd day, you may use to clean with tooth brush & a paste.You also need to be gentle while brushing.Do not damage surgical site. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Depends: There are times where an implant is placed at the same time as the extraction. This is called an immediate placement. The more traditional way is to allow the socket to heal in with bone then place the implants. That takes anywhere from 3-4 months after extraction. Which method used depends on the tooth, anatomy, and surgeon's experiences with implants there are pros and cons to both. ...Read moreSee 6 more doctor answers
Everyone is differen: Most people take a day or two off from work. If they were particularly difficult extractions it may take up to a week. If you have severe pain after a few days you may have a dry socket and need to see the surgeon asap. Make sure you take your meds as prescribed. You should not need pain meds after a few days but you should always finish any antibiotic prescription. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
No reason you cannot: Return to work the next day, unless there were some unforeseen complications encountered and the dentist advised you to be off for a certain period of time. If your job entails physical labor (heavy lifting, chain saws ...) and you are on medications that make your drowsy, etc, then those activities cannot be performed. These things should be discussed with your dentist prior to treatment. ...Read moreSee 4 more doctor answers
One week: It is safe to wait for a week after extraction to go bac to using a mouth wash.The tooth socket after extraction gets filled with a blood clot, which is very important for a proper healing.If that blood clot gets lost due to aggressive rinsing of the mouth, you may end up with dry socket, which is a very painful condition, &it would not allow the socket to heal, &you may need additional procedure. ...Read more
Clearance: The Dentist or specialist Periodontist who did your deep cleaning should reevaluate you and clear you for Orthodontic care. Depending on pre-treatment findings, 2 weeks-3 months. As you have extant periodontal disease (otherwise a deep cleaning would not have been necessary) I would recommend Ortho Rx by a specialist Orthodontist, and alternating 3 month cleanings between GP & Periodontist. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
A day or two.: I agree with dr. Goodrick. As an oral surgeon i tell my patients to wait at least 2 days before working out and then if the increased cardiac output causes discomfort to make your workout lighter until the discomfort is no longer there. For some runners and people who do heavy workouts that may be as long a 7 to 10 days. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Depends: Totally depends on the type of extraction involved. Some wisdom teeth extractions are straight forward and you will talk normally the next day. The more involved types of impactions will require a longer healing period and it may take 5-10 days before you're feeling "normal" again. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Immediately: Slowly at first, more rapidly as time goes by. And with tooth loss comes bone loss, making replacement more difficult as time goes by. Please do the most conservative and cost effective treatment by not waiting and watching as your occlusion detiorates. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Immediatelyl: Generally, if everything went well with the root canal therapy it would be a good idea to start immediately with the fabrication of a crown. Only when the prognosis might be guarded due to a number of reasons, would it be wise to make sure the rct is successful prior to making a crown for the tooth (just in case the rct fails). Discuss this with your own dentist. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers

Soon!: Hopefully, your dentist grafted the extraction site after your tooth was removed. If not, you might need to have a bone graft placed. It typically takes 3 months for a bone graft to "take", after which you can have a dental implant placed. Implants are the ideal option, and you won't regret the decision to have a dental implant placed. Seek the advice of a prosthodontist for specific info. ...Read moreSee 9 more doctor answers
