If the tooth extraction has finished, have to bite the dental floss for 1 hour. Why can’t we rinse? And how long are we allowed to rinse?

1 Answer:

Hello Naty,


Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.

Need to be clarified, whether your teeth dislodged by itself? Or is the tooth extraction meant?


Tooth extraction (or what you call tooth decay) can be done as a treatment of various conditions, for example cavities or rotten teeth that are no longer possible to be maintained, too many teeth (overcrowded), impacted teeth (buried deep in the gum structure or jaw), or a severe tooth infection, which is feared to be susceptible to spread to other organs.


After extracting the tooth, normally the hole in the gums where the tooth extracted will be filled with a blood clot. This important blood clot functions to bridge the gums and surrounding tissue to regenerate and close the hole. This process can take place optimally after up to 1-2 weeks after the revocation.


Gargling, spitting, or sucking in the first 1 to 2 x 24 hours after tooth extraction risks causing blood clots in the holes in the gums where the extracted teeth failed to form or come back. As a result, the gums can continue to perforate, becoming a field of infection and inflammation, and make your tooth extractions last longer to heal. Not only that, if this condition occurs, you can experience extreme pain and bad breath. In the medical realm, this condition is called dry socket.


Usually, you can start rinsing, spitting, or sucking after passing from 2 days after tooth extraction. However, this recommendation may vary depending on the type of tooth that has been pulled out, the condition of your teeth and mouth in general, as well as your health condition. Therefore, it is more appropriate if you ask your question directly to the dentist who treats you ...


I hope this helps.
