How long can you eat normally after tooth extraction?

Do you pay attention to your oral health? Oral health needs our careful attention, otherwise you may get serious cavities, then you need to extract teeth. Here is the question, how long you can eat normally after extraction?

The diet after extraction needs your attention. Half liquid food should be taken on the day of tooth extraction, soft and digestible food should be taken the next day, two days later you can eat normally, but chewing can not be resumed on the affected side within one week.

Most importantly, we should pay attention to the balance of diet and nutrition, not partial to food. Extraction wounds heal naturally through their own tissue changes. It takes 2-3 months for the extraction wound to heal completely (including the formation of new alveolar bone).

Does tooth extraction always bleed? In many people’s eyes, tooth extraction is a small operation, but many patients find that after tooth extraction, there is always bleeding and pain. Why can appear these situations, what should be paid attention to after tooth extraction?

After tooth extraction, you need to get the wound clot early. After tooth extraction, the doctor will put a piece of cotton roll on the wound and let the patient bite for 30 to 40 minutes. After spitting out the cotton roll, there should be no more active bleeding. If there is a little blood in the saliva, it is not a problem. However, if the blood clot falls off, the bleeding increase and the wound heal slowly, which may not only make the patient feel pain, but also it will cause infection.

Can patients brush teeth? Within one day after tooth extraction, patients should not brush their teeth and wash their mouth to prevent blood clots from falling off. They should avoid eating overheated food or drinking hot water, otherwise it will cause bleeding. In addition, patients can’t lick the wound with their tongue, let alone blow it with their mouth, which will increase the possibility of bleeding after tooth extraction. In addition, some patients with systemic diseases should be truthfully introduced to doctors before tooth extraction, such as patients with hypertension and some blood diseases. In this case, the possibility of postoperative bleeding is greater.

Women should pay more attention to tooth extraction. During menstrual period, the hormone level in women’s body changes. At this time, tooth extraction is easy to cause bleeding. Global Dental Lab reminded that, in addition to the decrease of stress ability of the body, the wound contacts with saliva after tooth extraction, and the wound heals slowly, which is prone to bacterial infection.

It is inevitable that your attention to oral health will lead to different health levels of teeth. If you want to avoid extraction, you must protect your teeth.
