Wisdom tooth extraction
The eruption of the G8 often causes pain. Incorrect location often leads to the appearance of an abnormal bite.
If the pain becomes pronounced, the temperature rises, the lymph nodes increase, swelling appears – this is an occasion to visit the dentist.
- Strong pain.
- Impaired jaw mobility.
Extraction of the wisdom tooth is carried out by local anaesthesia; general anaesthesia if the tooth is located under the soft tissues of the gum or if tooth is displaced to the side of the cheek.
Recommendations after tooth extraction surgery:
To stop the blood, the surgeon puts a tampon on the hole. If you remove it immediately after tearing, then you can break the clot. Infections that cause inflammation can get into an open wound. To prevent this, you can remove the tampon only after 15-20 minutes.
After surgery, it is recommended to apply something cold to the cheek (ice, a chilled bottle).
After the manipulation, you can not eat food, drink hot drinks for 2 hours. On the first day, you need to abandon salty and spicy dishes, so as not to cause irritation and inflammation.
It is forbidden to drink alcohol-containing drinks, as they dilate blood vessels, as a result of which the gums can begin to bleed.
Self-absorbable sutures dissolve in 10-12 days. The usual are removed in the clinic in a week. After a week, you can carry out other procedures in the mouth.
