Avoid anything hot on the day of the extraction; prefer instead lukewarm or slightly cold food and beverages.
Don’t use antiseptic mouthwash, salt water or anything else to rinse your mouth right after extraction.Resume normal oral hygiene practices the next day in order to avoid infections. A mouthwash can now be used to cleanse the mouth.
Avoid taking aspirin, as it causes bleeding. You may take paracetamol painkillers such as Depon or Panadol.
If severe pain persists, you may take anti-inflammatory medication such as NIFLAMOL or MESULID. Be sure to use pain medication as directed by your Doctor and only if you are not allergic to it.
If bleeding or swelling occurs, contact immediately your doctor.
Do not smoke for the next couple of days and do not engage in strenuous activities.
If light bleeding occurs, place a gauge pad on the extraction site and press it firmly for about half an hour, apply an ice pack on your cheek or just spit the blood out.
In case of profuse bleeding, contact immediately your doctor or visit the nearest hospital
