Peroxide should not be used after tooth extraction as it can destroy the blood clot which can further lead to dry socket. In case of dry socket, blood clot is dislodged or destroyed and can cause bone exposure to take place. For faster healing of socket to take place, you can do warm saline rinses 3-4 times a day. After 5-7 days, you can use rinse with peroxide. Keep tooth extraction socket area clean to avoid any secondary infections and follow the instructions of your dentist for faster healing to take place. If it was a simple tooth extraction, then extraction socket will heal in 10-14 days and if it was a surgical tooth extraction, then it may take weeks to months for healing to take place.

Barbara, A patient can get flexible dentures. They are healthy. Flexible dentures are light and thin and stability of these dentures are better as compared to normal acrylic dentures. There is a flexible resin coating present on outer layer of denture base. They are durable and are unbreakable unlike conventional acrylic dentures.
