"Dr. Jarvis, how do I care for my mouth after wisdom tooth removal?"
 

To limit bleeding after oral surgery, Dr. Jarvis may place a gauze pack on the wisdom tooth extraction site. This should be left in place for 30 to 45 minutes after leaving the office. Bite down on the gauze, but don't "chew" on it. Bleeding might continue after the pack is removed. If it does, we recommend you follow these instructions:

 

  • Form a thick pad from clean gauze; dampen it and place the pad directly on the wisdom tooth extraction site.
     
  • Apply some pressure by firmly biting on it for about 30 minutes.
     
  • Replace the pad with a clean one if it becomes soaked with blood.
     
  • If heavy bleeding continues, call your oral surgeon.
     
  • Avoid sucking on the wisdom tooth extraction site.
