Extracting a tooth is always a last resort . Your teeth are precious and nothing is as good as the real thing . However, if you do have to have a tooth removed , immediately after the extraction, the wound should be left to settle so that a blood clot can form in the socket . In order to ensure this you should:

the same day

  • Avoid exercise , alcohol and cigarettes
  • Avoid rinsing your mouth with mouthwashes as a blood clot needs to form
  • Avoid food and drink that is very hot or cold. If you experience any bleeding, bite hard on tightly packed cotton gauze for 10 minutes whilst sitting upright and still

the following day

Gently rinse the area using a warm salt water mouthwash for 30 seconds, three times a day. (Avoid vigorous rinsing, this may cause the blood clot in the socket to disperse and it will take longer to heal).
