Based on my experience from my multiple wisdom teeth extractions and my complete recovery from it, I am sharing some important tips and instructions provided by my dentist and how these tips helped my faster and complete recovery post wisdom teeth extraction.

These tips and instructions answers important questions like; what to eat after wisdom teeth extraction? How to prevent complications like dry sockets after wisdom teeth extraction? How long should I not smoke, spit, suck or drink with straw after wisdom tooth extraction? how to recover faster after extraction etc?

So, below are the important insructions:

1. Hold the Gauge between the teeth for atleast 45 minutes. This Gauge was placed just after the procedure to minimize bleeding.
2. For 24 hours, consume mostly liquid and semi solids and consume as much cold food items as I can but nothing hot not even lukewarm for 24 hours.
3. He also instructed me on what to eat after wisdom teeth removal, for 24 hours only cold and soft stuff as mentioned above and post 24 hours, some warm food items would do but should be semi solids and should b chewed from other side.
4. Keep pressing Ice pack for 24 hours to tackle face swelling after wisdom tooth removal
5. He prescribed to take Ketorol DT as a pain killer for wisdom teeth pain relief during my first extraction and during my surgical removal he didn't prescribe any pain reliever but he prescribed Dexona, which is a steroid, to minimize swelling.
6. Do not smoke, drink alcohol, suck or spit anything, drinking with straw for atleast 3-4 days to avoid a condition called Dry socket, which may happen after wisdom tooth extraction and Dry socket is very painful condition and might extend the healing period and also there is a risk of infection
7. He instructed to not do much of a physical activity for atleast 24 hours
8. He also told me the importance of oral hygiene and asked me to keep brushing my teeth daily
9. After 24 hours, I can start a gargle with salt and lukewarm water to keep the mouth clean. These gentle saline water gargles were to be repeated every couple of hours
10. I should keep messaging the face with hot and cold water alternatively to minimize the swelling on the face.
