If you must undergo an extraction, in this blog we will give you some tips so that your recovery is successful and does not present any type of contraindication.
The first thing you need to know is that this is a simple process, one where the dentist uses tools to loosen the tooth and then with force and precision removes it. While surgical extraction requires more care and involves a small cut or incision to extract the tooth.
Whatever the type of extraction to be carried out, the most important thing is to have your teeth in professional hands and be very disciplined in post-extraction care.
Care after extraction:
After a tooth extraction, you must not have hot food or drinks for the first 24 hours. Drinking everything cold will always help.
The advice to have some ice cream often works and makes your life sweeter.
On many occasions the external application of cold is recommended on the face. This prevents excessive bleeding and inflammation.
Use a mouthwash, do so very carefully, without exerting too much force with your mouth as this could cause inflammation and possible bleeding.
Maintain good and normal oral hygiene, You must maintain normal oral hygiene habits but more gently than usual.
