Instructions Following Extractions
Bite into gauze placed in your mouth for 20 minutes after the extraction(s). Do not open and close your mouth, or take the gauze out to check it, until the 20 minutes have passed.
Do not rinse, smoke, use a straw, spit, or drink hot liquids today. Any of these could disrupt the blood clot, and cause bleeding to resume.
For pain, take Tylenol (Acetaminophen) or Advil (Ibuprofen).
Any soft food desired may be eaten. Avoid hot liquids, crunchy foods, and nuts, berries, or seeds. Do not eat directly over the extraction site.
If any other adverse reactions occur, please contact our office immediately.
