If you have undergone a tooth extraction procedure, the following aftercare should help you. If pain and side effects persist, see a dentist.

Main takeaways:

– Always keep your dentist in the know about your post-extraction progress.

– Avoid smoking, using straws and rinsing your mouth after extraction.

– Lightly bite on the gauzing pad at intervals until bleeding stops.

– Take medication effectively, preferably after eating soft foods.

Proper aftercare reduces the risk of infection. Also, consult your dentist on how to clean your teeth without causing harm.
