After oral surgery, Dr. Jarvis suggests you protect the surgical area
 

 

A blood clot should form in the wisdom tooth extraction site; this needs to be protected for proper healing. Healing is a delicate process and requires the restriction of certain activities; otherwise the blood clot can be dislodged.


Oral Surgery Care And Things You Must Avoid:

  • Sucking or blowing motions
     
  • Smoking
     
  • Drinking through a straw for 24 hours
     
  • Rinsing your mouth vigorously
     
  • Mouthwash (until your oral surgeon approves its use)
     
  • Cleaning teeth next to the extracted site for the rest of the day
     
  • Strenuous exercise for 24 hours
     
  • Hot liquids or alcoholic beverages
