But being constantly immersed in the chaos of urgent matters, we sometimes forget about our dental health. We don’t even observe the fundamentals of oral hygiene, which leads to the accumulation of plaque, caries, and tooth decay. It often happens that we don’t feel the need to rush to eliminate even these problems. Such carelessness can result in tooth removal.
The Affordable Dentistry of South Florida uses the latest generation equipment, modern technologies, the best materials and tools, including archiving of all CT scans of our patients.
In Affordable Dentistry of South Florida, modern tooth-saving treatments are widely used. But, it is not always possible to save the tooth since the disease is neglected. The main doctor’s task in the course of tooth extraction is to make this procedure as much comfortable and safe as possible.
Recommendations after tooth extraction:
During the first 3 days after removal, the patient may not thoroughly rinse his mouth, and even spit out if possible, since a vacuum is formed in the mouth, which can displace the clot.
The cotton wool tampon left in the oral cavity by the doctor, shall be spit out after 20 minutes after removal. Do not eat before termination of anesthesia. If it has been difficult to remove the tooth, the patient needs to have liquid and soft foods in the next 24 hours, and chew food on the opposite side.
You need to refrain from smoking and drinking alcohol within 2 days after the removal of the tooth. If the doctor prescribes antibiotics, alcohol is prohibited during all days of antibiotic therapy.
Be sure to brush your teeth with a soft brush, including at the removal areas trying not to traumatize the hole. The more carefully you keep the place of removal clean, the faster it will heal. Gently rinse your mouth from food remnants after each meal with chilled boiled water. Don’t try to clean the hole with toothpicks or matches!
