Avoid hot liquids and alcoholic beverages. Do not use a straw, as this can disturb the blood clot. Day after procedure: Begin eating solid foods the next day or as soon as you can chew comfortably. For the first few days, try to chew food on the side opposite the extraction site. When it feels comfortable, you should resume chewing on both sides of your mouth. u Other things you should know Avoid alcoholic beverages or mouthwash that has alcohol in it for 24 hours. Limit physical activity like exercise or lifting heavy objects for 24 hours after the extraction. This will reduce bleeding and help the blood clot to form. If you do get a dry socket, report it to your dentist right away. A dressing may be placed in the socket to protect it until the socket heals and to reduce any pain. Do not disturb the blood clot that forms in the tooth socket! The blood clot that forms in the tooth socket is an important part of the normal healing process. You should avoid doing things that might disturb the clot. If the blood clot is disturbed and breaks down, you can get a dry socket. Dry sockets can be extremely painful. To lower your risk of a dry socket, be very careful to not do anything that can disturb the clot. For the first 24 hours, do not suck, spit, slurp, or any other action that creates suction in your mouth and puts pressure on your blood clot. This means: Do not drink through a straw Do not smoke (smoking can also prevent your gums from healing properly) Do not suck on candy, popsicles, lollipops, etc. Do not slurp up soups or other liquids Do not rinse your mouth with too force TALK TO YOUR DENTIST BEST SELLER Tooth Extraction: Post-Operative Instructions Every extraction patient should have this handy brochure.

After Surgery: Be prepared to rest and avoid vigorous activity. Recovery time will vary from person to person, so be sure to follow your dentist’s instructions on when you can return to normal activities. Avoid solid foods that require a lot of chewing. Stick to soft foods and liquids. Do not drink with a straw. The “sucking” action could make the wound site take longer to heal. You may have some swelling and discomfort. This is normal, but your dentist will talk to you about what you can do to help manage these problems. Be sure to know how to reach your dentist during non-office hours in case you have any questions or concerns about the healing process. There will usually be a follow-up appointment to ensure the site is healing. In some cases, there may be complications after treatment. It is possible to get “dry sockets.” Dry sockets can develop when the blood clot that forms over your socket is displaced, leaving bone and nerves exposed. Smoking can increase the risk for complications and delay healing. Follow your dentist’s instructions carefully to reduce the risk for complications. Not everyone’s teeth develop on the same schedule. See your dentist regularly so he or she can monitor the growth of your wisdom teeth. What You Can Expect If you use tobacco in any form, it is important to quit. Smoking and vaping can cause problems with your healing process. Ask your dentist or physician for information about ways to quit. What about pain relief? Some people think that pain after wisdom teeth removal can only be tackled with prescription medicines. But that’s not true. Studies show that a combination of ibuprofen and acetaminophen—both common pain relievers you can buy off the shelf under many brand names—work just as well as prescription medicines without the side effects like the potential for addiction.

He or she may recommend dressing comfortably in loose clothing and arranging for someone to be with you after your dental visit. Extractions are usually performed under local anesthesia. This means you stay “awake” but your mouth is numbed with a pain medication. You can discuss with your dentist the types of anesthesia and pain or antianxiety medication to determine what is right for you. Talk to your dentist about any questions you have about the procedure. He or she will also tell you how you can get advice after office hours if you have any problems after surgery. Tell your dentist about past illnesses and current medications you are taking this should include both prescription and over-the- counter drugs. TALK TO YOUR DENTIST Your Wisdom Teeth This practical brochure explains what wisdom teeth are and details reasons they might need to be removed. With a list of potential problems caused by wisdom teeth—reinforced by x-rays of horizontal and angular impaction, your patient will understand why this is a recommended treatment and help increase case acceptance. It also addresses pain management, suggesting acetaminophen and ibuprofen instead of prescription medication.

Your dentist or hygienist can recommend what changes you should make. Eat a healthy diet o Drink plain water or milk when you can. o Drink acid-containing beverages only once in a while. Drink through a straw to lower your teeth’s exposure to the acids in your drink. Rinse your mouth with plain water after you are finished with your drink. o Eat or drink sugary items with meals instead of on their own. o Chew sugarless gum or suck on sugarless mints/hard candies (that are not sour- flavored) after meals. Look for oral health care products with the American Dental Association Seal of Acceptance. The ADA Seal in this category means that a product is both safe and effective in helping to prevent and reduce enamel erosion from dietary acids. If you suffer from frequent heartburn or acid reflux, talk to your physician about ways you can get it under control. If you suffer from dry mouth, talk to your dentist about options that can help bring you relief. Tips to prevent tooth erosion Wait at least 1 hour before you brush! You may think you are doing the responsible thing by brushing your teeth right away after drinking your favorite beverage, but you actually may be doing more harm than good. Acids can attack your enamel and soften it. Your saliva rinses acids away and helps your enamel to re-harden. If you brush before the enamel has time to re-harden then it can damage the enamel. Waiting an hour before brushing lowers the risk of harming your enamel. Acidic drinks can erode your teeth When you sip on acidic drinks, the acid washes over your teeth and weakens your enamel. If you sip these drinks several times a day, your teeth are under constant threat from the acid and don’t have a chance to stay strong and protect against decay-causing bacteria. Ways to tell if you have tooth erosion The chewing surfaces of your teeth may become sensitive to hot and cold and even touch. This is because the enamel is no longer providing complete protection of the dentin. This can mean that you will be more sensitive to hot or cold and even to outside air. Tooth erosion harms your teeth and overall health These are some of the common problems that are linked with tooth erosion: Sensitive teeth Decay and cavities Infection Abscess (puss-filled sac) can form. Tooth loss Loss of confidence in the look of your smile. Get help for your eating disorder You aren’t alone. Talk to your dentist or physician about how you can get healthy again. Or, call the National Eating Disorders Association Helpline and talk to someone confidentially. 1.800.931-2237. Tooth erosion can cause many problems and may even affect how you feel about your smile. Eroded teeth can become yellow or discolored and they are more at risk to decay and sensitivity. Managing tooth erosion Once your teeth are eroded, there is no way to treat it. But, there are ways to manage it that can also help to prevent future erosion. What to do about your tooth erosion will depend on what is causing it to happen as well as your own personal health history. Some of the most common ways to manage tooth erosion are: Veneers a thin but strong covering that’s placed over the front part of your tooth. It’s made to look like your natural tooth and can restore the look of your smile. Tooth Restoration If you have a cavity then you may need a filling. You may also need a crown if the cavity is larger than what a filling can restore. Root Canal If the nerves of your tooth are infected then you may need root canal therapy. Tooth Removal If the erosion is severe and your tooth can’t be restored, then it may need to be removed. Is your favorite drink harmful to your teeth? A wide variety of popular beverages are highly acidic. Beverage types that are highly erosive start on the left on this graph. These are just a few of the types of drinks you may be enjoying every once in a while: Level of Acidity Your teeth may look shiny, transparent or yellow/stained. Your teeth may change in size and shape as the enamel erodes. There may be dimples or “pits” on the chewing surfaces of your teeth.
