After Wisdom Tooth Removal

Having your wisdom teeth removed is a surgical procedure that requires some post-operative care to reduce the chance of infection or other complications. Immediately after, a gauze pad will be placed over the extraction site, which should not be removed for at least 45 minutes, and then discarded. Refrain from drinking from a straw or rinsing your mouth to ensure that you do not dislodge the blood clot that has formed or disrupt the sutures. You can resume your regular activities the following day, but rest when you get home. Take the pain medication as prescribed to reduce the amount of discomfort after the local anesthetic wears off.
