This will take about 24-48 hours. If you are on a certain medication, this may take longer. Once you see the clotted blood, you may rinse, but please be careful not to spit much, and just let the water drain out. ...Read more

Right away: As long as you can open your mouth in comfort, i would not delay getting the root canal. Waiting only creates a greater potential for a dental emergency. A root canal is actually a much easier procedure than the extraction of a full boney impacted wisdom tooth. So don't delay and good luck! and don't forget to get a crown after the root canal is completed! to delay, risks your tooth breaking! ...Read more

What can I expect after a wisdom tooth extraction for a tooth that’s a bony impaction? My oral surgeon says that means the tooth is surrounded by bone, so he’ll need to cut into my jaw bone. That sounds really painful. Will I have a long recovery? How wil

If : If you are young it will be simple. Your surgeon only needs to remove enough bone to get the tooth out. That's what i call a window. The bone will heal back uneventfully. You will not be in the pain you are imagining. But the first week after surgery you will be sore and eating will take more effort. After the second week you can get back to eating that beef jerky. So don't fret it will go well. ...Read more
