Wisdom teeth removal can be scary, especially if it is your first time having this type of procedure done. Many people have seen videos on the internet of people after their wisdom teeth removal. They typically always have gauze in their mouth and are making funny jokes. This is something that you should expect to happen after the procedure you are put to sleep. There are some cases where they might not even have to put you to sleep and instead free your mouth and do the procedure while you are awake. Everyone feels pain after their wisdom teeth have been taken out, it is normal for swelling and continuous bleeding. Others will heal faster than some people spending on the number of wisdom teeth that have been extracted.
The first thing you will have to expect after your procedure is continuous bleeding for at least a day, if you eat to prevent yourself from bleeding more avoid spitting. That may come as a surprise to you, but it has been shown that swallowing the saliva and blood instead of spitting it out prevents dry socket. This is a painful thing that can happen to you after your procedure if you are spitting often. We recommend that after the day of the first procedure, you avoid brushing your teeth. You don’t want to put unneeded pressure on the area where your teeth have been extracted; this will only cause more swelling and pain.
You will receive over-the-counter medications to prevent some of that pain after surgery; there will also be a medication you have to take to prevent your mouth from becoming infected. It is normal to see your face begin to swell or bruise after you have taken your wisdom teeth out. This is something that will heal a week after having the procedure done. Avoid participating in activities for at least a few days; you should take time to rest and heal so you are in good health to get back to doing the things you love. Your food diet will consist of only soft foods for the first 24 hours after your procedure; you will also want to avoid smoking, drinking alcohol or coke during that time.
