My question is whether there is no problem if when eating there is food that goes into the gums and how long the gums will close like normal gum .. ??
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
First of all, I want to make sure in advance, do you mean that you remove the tooth yourself or you pull out at the dentist? When is the tooth extraction done? Permanent tooth extraction should not be done alone or done at a dental artisan, especially on teeth with deep cavities and infected because it can be dangerous for the health of your teeth and gums.
When a tooth is extracted, a tooth extraction hole will form in the gum. Normally this hole will be filled with blood clots (blood clot). This blood clot has a function to protect the holes in the gums from being exposed to food in the oral cavity during the gum healing process. If the blood clot is dislodged (for example due to improper post-tooth extraction treatment) or because one thing or another has not formed a blood clot, then you will be able to see the hole in your gums where the tooth is removed. You can also see bones in the area. If you experience this, chances are you experience what is called a dry socket.
If you experience this, you should immediately see your dentist. The existence of a dry socket after tooth extraction can cause slowing healing of the gums, infection of the gums, and infection of the bones around the hole, therefore do not delay to check yourself to the dentist.
Meanwhile, you should be more careful when you chew food. Avoid chewing in areas that have just been pulled out, or if you need to eat food that doesn't need to be chewed first. Don't rinse your mouth too hard, brush your teeth more carefully in the area that has just been pulled out.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
