Extraction Aftercare Sydney


After the extraction process, pain decreases after 3-5 days. However, it would take 1-2 weeks to finally heal.

Here are a few tips from Finesse Dental after the first few days of aftercare:
Extraction Aftercare Sydney

  • Get plenty of rest.
  • Use the spare gauze and change it by biting down on it if it still bleeds. If bleeding persists, do not hesitate to contact us back.
  • Rinse your mouth with lukewarm salty water (1 teaspoon of salt with 600ml water).
  • Try to avoid strenuous exercise.
  • If pain is intense, rest with the head raised, and where advised take 2 panadol or nurofen tablets. DO NOT TAKE ASPRIN.
  • Avoid hot or extremely cold foods and liquids.
  • Do not drink alcohol for 24 hours.
  • Do not smoke for 24-48 hours.
  • When numbness has gone, choose lukewarm liquids and soft food, chewing away from the wound.
  • Until the wound heals, gently rinse your mouth with lukewarm salty water.
  • Please note that it is not advisable to fly or travel post-surgery.
