In brief: 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.

In brief: 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.
