The next day. You should have had some instructions from the dentist explaining this to you. You can start brushing the next day, but be careful around the extraction sites as they are tender, sore and easily abraded and can bleed readily.
Afew days. Usually oral surgeons like the operated area to be minimally stimulated after surgery. The toothpaste can be an irritant, so it would be wise to not use toothpaste at first but after primary healing has taken place, no problem. Light brushing with a soft brush is encouraged!
Same day. It's important to brush your teeth, because the cleaner your mouth is, the less likely you'll get an infection. However, avoid brushing the socket (holes where the teeth used to be) or area of surgery. You don't want to disrupt the blood clot (scab) or loosen the sutures (stitches). Also, avoid aggressive swishing and gargling, if you need to spit lean over the sink and let it gently drip out.
Keep the mouth clean. Sutures are placed in the area of surgery to minimize post-operative bleeding and to help healing. You can brush your teeth the night of surgery but rinse gently. Take care.
At least 24 hours. Wait a minimum of 24 hours. It is best to be careful, as spitting out excess toothpaste can lead to disruption of the blood clot. Avoid spitting, and gently allow the move the fluid and allow the excess "drool" out of your mouth.
Depends. It depends on what the surgery was like. If you don't have stitches, just a day or two. If the teeth were impacted, i'd wait until the stitches were removed before brushing back there, but you should use chlohexidine gluconate mouthwash twice daily to keep bacterial levels down. Your dental surgeon can prescribe this.
Next day. 1) use a soft manual toothbrush. 2) place the brush where the teeth and the gum join together. 3) move the brush in circles. 4) do all teeth this way on the face side and the tongue side.
The same day. Maintaining good oral hygiene is important. You can brush all of your teeth except where your teeth were removed the day of surgery. I advise my patients to brush lightly over the extraction sites the first day after surgery and resume normal brushing on the second postoperative day.
Wisdom teeth extraction a week ago. Feeling is back. My tongue did get bruised but now theres a big lump and also stings badly when using toothpaste?
Bruised. Everything should continue to heal in time. Avoid spicy, acidic foods and in this case toothpaste (if necessary) until your tongue feels better. If need be, have your dentist take a look at the extraction sites and the tongue if not completely healed soon.
24-48 hours. At least 24-48 hours after the wisdom teeth extraction, you should avoid very hot or cold drinks, including sodas and solid foods. Take care.
Depends. Ask your surgeon – the actually surgery time (after the preoperative procedures) could be anywhere from 15 minutes to a couple of hours.
Depends. The procedure may depend on the position of the teeth, how many are removed, type of anesthesia or sedation provided, where your surgery is performed, as well as the technique and experience of the dentist or surgeon performing your surgery.
Varies. 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.
Varies. Recovery from wisdom teeth surgery varies from patient to patient. Your perception and response to pain/soreness, the level of difficulty encountered by the dentist/surgeon, and any complications that you may have, are things that may impact your recovery.
It varies, call DDS. The dentist who removed your wisdom is responsible for supplying you with oral and\or written instructions and your aftercare. You should call and ask them any questions that you have. Specific instructions may vary from office to office and is case specific.
2-3 days. The removal of impacted teeth is a surgical procedure and post-operative pain is a common complaint. For moderate pain take NSAID or Tylenol (acetaminophen) OTC. For severe pain, take the prescribed medication as directed. The pain should subside considerably over the next 2-3 days.
7-10 days. However, if you are experiencing throbbing pain you may have a dry socket. Contact your dentist if the pain is keeping you up at night.
