No hot spicy foods or salty snacks and no smoking
Normal diet now but avoid small particle foods like rice. Again easy on the salt and spices ...Read more

The reason is: sucking pressure can easily dislodge a recent clot, thereby exposing alveolar bone to the oral environment, it is called a dry socket. Clot loss due to suction. ...Read more

My tongue has an orange coating a couple of days after a tooth extraction. I did not eat or drink anything orange. Should I be concerned?

Easy way is to stick your tongue way out and then put the brush on top of tongue near the back and then pull your tongue back in. Better than shoving the brush way back in to the throat area. If it does not clear up , see the surgeon. Good Luck. ...Read more
