How Do I Care For My Mouth After Wisdom Tooth Removal?
Get as much rest as you can following the removal of wisdom teeth, restricting home and work activities for a day or two, as your schedule allows. Avoid vigorous mouth rinsing, eating hard or crunchy foods, and touching the wound area. Thirty minutes after removal of the teeth, take off the gauze pad provided by your dentist. To relieve discomfort, take over-the-counter pain medicine or one prescribed by your dentist. Observe the following protocol as well:
- Chew only soft foods, and restrict them to areas away from the back of the mouth
- Drink 5-6 tall glasses of water daily
- Don’t allow discomfort to prevent you from taking nourishment
- Avoid drinking from a straw
- Sit up for one full minute before standing from a prone position
- Brush teeth gently twice a day and rinse gently 5-6 times daily for one week
- Take antibiotics if prescribed
- Sip on ginger ale to deal with nausea from sedation and/or narcotics
- Keep lips moisturized for one week following treatment
- Treat a low fever with OTC meds
- Use ice outside of the mouth to treat pain and swelling
