Doctor insights on:
Really Thirsty After Tooth Extraction
"Dry socket": Is a common source of severe pain that begins about the 3rd day after extraction, happens usually just on the lower jaw. Most post-surgical pain is usually gone 1-2 weeks after most extractions. Persistent pain needs to be checked for infection and other possibilities.
Really want a cigarette but I'm trying to hold out for at least 24 hours after tooth extraction. I really don't want dry socket. When can I smoke?
5 days Non-smoker: Dry sockets are most likely to develop in the first 5 days. This is among non-smokers. Smokers have higher chance of dry socket. The longer you wait, the lower the chance. Stay away from smoking for minimum 5 days, and if you can do longer it is highly advisable. Hold out forever is even better!
Call oral surgeon: After two weeks, the area should pretty much be healed. Something seems amiss. Let the surgeon evaluate the soft tissue.See 1 more doctor answer
See dentist: I recommend you go back to the dentist who extracted the tooth and have the extraction site examined. The gingiva (gums) are in an active healing stage at this point and can be readily disturbed and easily bleed just by eating some hard, crusty type foods and even by brushing your teeth and gums.
I have been bleeding for a week already do to a tooth extraction is that normal? I went back to dentist 2 times n he just cleans the clot but the bleeding won't stop. During the day it really doesn't bleed but every morning I wake up bleeding.
Bleeding: You may want to see an oral surgeon to have the area re-evaluated.See 2 more doctor answers
How long will I need to avoid smoking after a tooth extraction? My dentist told me a week, but i’ve never been able to go more than about 8 hours without a smoke. I know I really need this done, but i’m not sure I can survive it without smoking.
Seek help: Dr. Malerman is right, but you can get help. Try a patch since the action of "smoking" an e-cigarette will cause problems too. Also try this breathing exercise frequently. A big, deep nasal inhale. Hold it, then exhale through lips like you are smoking. Combined, the patch will provide nicotine ;a the breathing will deal with the habit and actually be good for you. Good luck!See 4 more doctor answers
Tooth Extraction: If a tooth has too much damage and can't be saved then in this case, the tooth needs to be extracted. Before removing the tooth, your dentist will administrate a local anesthetic for pain control and by surgical procedure tooth will be removed. Most tooth extractions take just a few minutes and the procedure is very safe.See 1 more doctor answer
Varies: Fees vary from office to office, city to city. A specialist will charge more than a generalist. Being put to sleep? That's an additional expense. Any number given over the internet is meaningless, since fess in deltona are not the same as los angeles or albany or el paso.See 1 more doctor answer
Yes: Some insurance companies will not cover dental procedures to correct a tooth that was extracted prior to coverage. That's a primary reason dentist ask when a tooth was extracted or lost. Also, dentist can asses the rate of bone healing by determining how long ago the tooth was lost. So, it matters.See 1 more doctor answer
Work?: You mean how is an extraction done, or why extract a tooth? Extracting a tooth removes the source of a problem (pain, swelling, infection, decay), makes more room for the other teeth, and/or improves the prognosis for the remaining teeth. A tooth is extracted by separating the root from the bone. If the tooth is impacted or stuck, sometimes sectioning the tooth is necessary.See 2 more doctor answers
Softer foods first: The best answer can be obtained from the surgeon. That surgeon knows your particular situation and its associated risks. However, in general, you should eat softer and non-crunchy foods for at least a few days. With wisdom teeth extraction this time period may well exceed five weeks. For teeth extracted more towards the front of the mouth there is less risk of a problem and less restrictions..See 2 more doctor answers

Normal & Varies: Depending on the type of extraction, the surgeons style and expertise and the patient, post surgery pain varies dramatically.

Pain management: Before, during, and after tooth extraction, pain management is an important subject. The appropriate anesthesia for you depends on the expected complexity of the tooth extraction and your own comfort level. Talk to your dentist and explain your concern.

That depends: If this was an over-retained baby tooth for a child it should not be much different then the tooth coming out on its own. If it was an easy experience and the child feels up to it, let them play. If this was an extraction of an adult tooth then I would wait a few days.See 2 more doctor answers
Hummmmm: I would be careful if an upper molar was extracted. The air could cause pressure changes in the sinus and cause an opening between the sinus and mouth thriough the socket. Either take a few days off, or very low pressures. Otherwise, CPAP should not be a problem for the remainder of the mouth.See 1 more doctor answer
