Depends. Rinsing too soon after an extraction can result in removing the blood clot that promotes healing in the site. Mouth rinses can be strong and may make this worse. I recommend waiting at least 24 hours before rinsing and then very gently with a mild salt water (saline) mixture. Always follow the directions your surgeon gives you.
Waite. Mouth wash use or rinsing your mouth the day of or the day after the extraction may cause the blood clot that forms in the socket where the tooth was to be dislodged or removed causing infection or even dry socket, which is very painful, waite at least 24 hours after extraction and use a mild mouth wash or salt water to rinse with to promote healing.
Possibly but... Follow the post-op instructions of the dentist/oral surgeon. If they say it is ok to rinse, then consider. Usually luke warm salt water is good.
Got wisdom teeth removed. Took penicillin&medical mouthwash in full (done). Now yellow on back of tongue when wake up in AM. What should I do?
Is it normal to have white patches in my wisdom teeth extraction area after using colgate peroxyl mouthwash? My tongue looks white too. Normal?
Maybe. It should go away in a short period of time... If it does not go away, stop using the mouth rinse... If it still does not go away, i would suggest seeing a dentist. Read more...
Does the mouth wash they give you after having your wisdom teeth removed burn/cause pain. It's 0.12% of medicine I can't remember the name as of now?
Chlorhexidine. The mouthwash you were likely given is 0.12% Chlorhexidine and goes by the names of perioguard or perished. It can cause a little burning due to its alcohol content especially is you rinse too aggressively or for too long of time. Think of how listerine burns your gums when you rinse with it. The keys are to rinse gently for about 30 seconds two times per day (unless your doctor said differently) Read more...
