Frequently Asked Questions.

- Remember: lips together, lips apart.

- Apply warm compress.

- Bleeding Control: Apply pressure to the extraction site by biting on the gauze that was provided (for about one hour). Changing the gauze is not necessary, however if you do so, then dampen the gauze with water before placing it over the extraction sites. Don’t go home and lie down as the blood rushes to your head and it will take longer for the bleeding to stop. Remain upright for an hour while biting on the gauze.
- Smoking: Smoking delays healing and increases the chance of dry sockets (loss of the blood clot).
- Alcohol: Don’t drink alcohol for the next week as it expands the blood vessels and delays clotting.
- Preserving the blood clot: Do not disturb the socket for the next four days. Don’t drink through straws (you could dislodge the blood clot) and do not stick toothpicks or other objects into the socket.
- Rinsing: one teaspoon of salt in an eight ounce glass of warm water. Rinse your mouth gently six to eight times per day.
- Pain Control: Use the pain medication recommended by the Dentist. An ice pack applied to your face (20 minutes on, 20 minutes off) will help decrease the swelling.
