Tooth extraction refers to painless removal of tooth or tooth roots with minimum trauma to the surrounding tissues so that the extraction socket wound heals uneventfully without any post-operative complications.(matériel endodontie)
Try to take some rest after Tooth Extraction. You may feel great but don’t exercise at least for a day after tooth extraction.When taking rest,keep your head lifted on a pillow.
Let the clot be formed on the tooth extraction site , which covers it and allow it to heal. Bite on the gauze piece after tooth extraction, which the dentist has put on the extraction socket, minimum for an hour. Don’t chew on that gauze piece but put a steady pressure.
Ice Packs: Apply ice pack on the side where surgery was performed. All this is done to reduce swelling. Though on simple extractions, swelling isn’t accompanied but in cases requiring severe cheek retractions, swelling can occur after operation. Though the swelling will not occur immediately but will reach maximum at 2nd or 3rd day. So, to minimize this swelling immediately apply ice packs. Various methods of applying ice packs are:
Sealed plastic bags filled with ice or
A bag of frozen peas or
Corn wrapped in a washcloth
Application of ice pack is most effective during the day of extraction as after 24 hours there is no significant beneficial effect. Ice packs should be applied 15 minutes on and 15 minutes off for 1-2 hours.
