It's natural to experience some pain, discomfort, and possibly swelling after a tooth extraction. Some minor bleeding may also occur for a few hours after the procedure.

Please note the following:

  • Avoid using mouthwash for twenty-four hours after tooth extraction.
  • If bleeding persists or becomes heavy, place a clean, folded tissue over the extraction site and bite down firmly for thirty minutes, ensuring not to remove the tissue during this time.
  • Make sure to take any prescribed medications regularly and adhere to the importance of scheduled follow-up appointments for treatment monitoring.
  • Ensure that food and drink are cool and kept away from the extraction site.
  • After twenty-four hours have passed since the tooth extraction, use a warm saltwater solution to rinse your mouth to maintain wound cleanliness, especially after eating.

Note: The saltwater solution consists of half a teaspoon of table salt in a cup of slightly warm water.
