Things To Avoid After Tooth Extraction

After a tooth extraction, it’s crucial to follow proper steps to ensure proper healing and avoid complications. Here are some things to avoid:

  • Avoid eating hard and crunchy foods for the first few days to prevent damage to the extraction site. Stick to soft foods like rice, pasta, eggs, yogurt, and applesauce (Cleveland Clinic).
  • Do not smoke or use tobacco products, as they can impede the healing process and increase the risk of infection.
  • Avoid using a straw when drinking, as the suction can dislodge the blood clot that forms in the extraction site, leading to a painful condition known as a dry socket.
  • Refrain from rigorous exercise for at least 24 hours after the extraction, as increased blood pressure can cause bleeding at the site.
  • Avoid poking or touching the extraction site with your tongue, fingers, or any objects to prevent irritation or infection.

Tooth Extraction Aftercare

  • Rest and take it easy for the first 24 hours.
  • Apply an ice pack to the outside of your cheek intermittently (15 minutes on, 15 minutes off) to reduce swelling.
  • Take prescribed painkillers if necessary to manage discomfort.
  • Avoid rinsing vigorously or spitting forcefully for the first 24 hours to allow the blood clot to form.
  • Eat soft, nutritionally dense foods and avoid hot or spicy items that might irritate the extraction site. 

Remember, these are general guidelines, and your dentist or oral surgeon will provide you with specific aftercare instructions tailored to your situation. Follow their advice closely for the best recovery.

Tooth Extraction FAQ's

Yes, it is generally recommended to take a day off after a tooth extraction to allow your body time to start the healing process. During this time, rest is crucial, and you should avoid any strenuous activity that could lead to increased bleeding or dislodgment of the blood clot at the extraction site. Some people may feel well enough to return to work or school within one to two days, but it’s essential to listen to your body and follow the advice of your dentist.

The easiest teeth to extract are typically the ones that are fully erupted, have simple root anatomy, and do not have any significant decay or fracture. These are often the front teeth, like incisors and canines, which have single roots and are more accessible.

The most difficult teeth to extract are usually the lower molars, especially impacted wisdom teeth. These teeth have multiple roots that can be curved or fused, and their position in the back of the mouth can make them challenging to reach. Additionally, impacted teeth that have not fully erupted through the gumline can require a more complex surgical extraction.

You can generally expect to eat normally after a tooth extraction once you feel comfortable, which is typically after the initial healing period of about one to two weeks. It’s important to start with soft foods that require little chewing and gradually reintroduce harder foods as your extraction site heals. During the first 24 hours, you should avoid any solid foods and stick to liquids and soft foods to avoid disrupting the blood clot that forms in the socket.

Bleeding after a tooth extraction is normal within the first few hours and can be managed with gauze and gentle pressure. However, excessive or prolonged bleeding may require attention from the dentist. While some bleeding is expected after an extraction, it is not typically a sign of infection. Signs of infection to look out for include persistent or worsening pain, swelling, redness, a bad taste in the mouth, fever, or pus coming from the extraction site.
