Care Instructions after an Extraction

 

1. To help the gums heal quickly, rest at home for 24 hours

2. Do not smoke or drink alcohol for one week, because smoking will delay healing

3. Do not rinse or spit for 24 hours

4. Avoid sucking on a straw or blowing your nose for one week, if you had an upper tooth extracted 

5. Avoid heavy exercise for 24 hours

6. Wait until the anaesthetic has worn off before you drink anything hot, takes about 4 hours

7. Take care not to bite your lip or cheek whilst numb

8. If the gum bleeds a lot bite down firmly on gauze for 30mins

9. Do not take Aspirin(Disprin) for pain relief, as it may promote bleeding. Best pain relief is achieved with Ibuprofen (Nurofen) or Paracetamol (Panadol), taken before the anaesthetic wears off.

10.Avoid cleaning the surgical area , it is a self healing wound
