3 Crucial Instructions to Follow for Recovery from Tooth Extraction
Tooth extraction is the simplest surgery procedure that one can receive. However, that doesn’t reduce the fear and anxiety regarding the procedure. If you are feeling nervous, it is only normal. Also, recovering after the procedure is not difficult either.
When you are at Rolle Oral and Facial Surgery, you will be handed with a set of instructions after the surgery that you will need to follow. This will surely help you in faster recovery from the pain. Apart from the basic instructions, you will also need to follow some crucial instructions so that you can recover faster. Take a look at the following points to know more.
Forming the Blood ClotOnce the extraction is done, you will be asked to bite on a gauze pad for 30-45 minutes which will result in stopping the bleeding. If needed, you will need to repeat the process again. During this time, a blood clot will form in the place that will stop the bleeding effectively. You need to be careful not to hamper the blood clot from its place as it will again cause bleeding. Don’t brush for 72 hours or rinse your mouth vigorously.
Complete the Whole Course of MedicineYou need to complete the course of medicine. You will be prescribed with antibiotics and pain killers. Antibiotics will be prescribed to keep the infection at bay. Hence, even if you are not seeing any signs of infection, you need to complete the course of antibiotics.
If you exercise regularly, now it is time to take a break. Why? Regular exercise can cause a rise in your blood pressure which can result in more bleeding from the surgical site. Also, you need to avoid exercise as you will be on a liquid or semi-liquid diet after the surgery which won’t offer complete nutrition and you might feel sick.Follow the instruction from Dr. Richard Rolle Jr. and recover faster after your tooth extraction.
