Having wisdom teeth removed is a common procedure, but there is typically swelling after the procedure. There are ways to reduce the swelling that your dentist can explain:
– Keep your head elevated to promote good blood flow to the area
– Use a hot or cold compress
– A saltwater rinse will help soften the wounded area
– Bite on softened/boiled chamomile tea bags
“When getting your wisdom teeth removed, it’s essential to follow your oral surgeon’s instructions both before and after the procedure.”
