  • If you do not have any pain or swelling then there is no need to worry but you have to be careful to maintain very good oral hygeine.If the extraction sockets are not kept clean then there can be infection as then you can have pain and swelling. For keeping them clean do warm saline rinses 2 to 3 times a day along with the brushing twice.
