Had tooth extracted on the 22nd of october. Have had area packed twice now and currently not packed and on antibotics since all teeth and gums were hurting. Had packing taken out yesterday. Question is, what are my restrictions now?

  • Your restricts are:

    1. Donot eat from that side.

    2. Keep the area clean so that secondary infection does not set in.

    3. Do warm saline rinses 2-3 times day.

    4. Take your meds on time.

    It will take around 3 week for the tooth extraction socket to heal and till then you have to maintain very good oral hygiene. for more info on complications after tooth extraction, you can check the article in our website... http://www.identalhub.com/dental-complications-after-tooth-extraction-881.aspx
