What to Do Following Wisdom Tooth Removal

After a patient undergoes wisdom teeth extraction, they will need to closely follow post-op guidelines to heal well. After the wisdom teeth are removed, the dentist will place gauze over the surgical area to help staunch blood flow. This needs to stay in place for a minimum of 45 minutes before removal. Patients should avoid drinking from a straw, as this can put strain on the sutures and may prevent the blood from clotting. Patients should rest the day of the wisdom teeth extraction but can go back to their usual routine the day afterwards if they feel ready. Pain medicine should be used as prescribed once the anesthesia wears off.
