Después de la extracción del diente

After tooth extraction, it’s important for a blood clot to form to stop the bleeding and begin the healing process. Muerda una gasa durante 30-45 minutos inmediatamente después de la cita. If the bleeding or oozing still persists, Coloque otra almohadilla de Gasa y bocado firmemente por otros 30 minutos. You may have to do this several times to staunch the flow of blood.

After the blood clot forms it is important to not disturb or dislodge the clot. Do not rinse vigorously, suck on straws, smoke, beber alcohol o cepillo de dientes al lado del sitio de extracción por 72 horas. These activities may dislodge or dissolve the clot and hinder the healing process. Limitar el ejercicio vigoroso para las próximas 24 horas, as this increases blood pressure and may cause more bleeding from the extraction site.

After the tooth is extracted you may feel some pain and experience some swelling. An ice pack or an unopened bag of frozen peas or corn applied to the area will keep swelling to a minimum. Take pain medications as prescribed. La hinchazón generalmente desaparece después de 48 horas..

Use pain medication as directed. Call our office if the medication doesn’t seem to be working. If antibiotics are prescribed, continue to take them for the indicated length of time even if signs and symptoms of infection are gone. Drink lots of fluids and eat nutritious, soft food on the day of the extraction. You can eat normally as soon as you are comfortable.

Es importante retomar su rutina dental normal después de 24 horas. This should include brushing and flossing your teeth at least once a day. This will speed healing and help keep your mouth fresh and clean.
