Hello Bro Muhammad Rifki thank you for consulting us at HealthReplies.com.
Is the operation you are doing wisdom teeth surgery? Generally, surgery on the teeth and mouth is done because there are indications of abnormalities in wisdom teeth which are often problematic in growth or impact (cannot get out of the gums like molars in general). In addition to swelling, it can occur other conditions that can disrupt daily life even though the operation has been completed, the condition is, gum pain, swelling, discomfort around the wisdom tooth is removed, nausea, dry lips and sore throat.
Swelling that occurs is a natural thing, because the operation carried out usually will make the soft tissue in the tooth where it grows damaged and torn, this will cause chemical compounds and white blood cells (serves to prevent infection due to open tissue and blood vessels) initiates and responds by nerves as pain, in addition to causing tissue to become swollen due to white blood cells and blood vessels around the tissue to swell. Dilation of blood vessels aims to provide food supplies, and blood cells (platelets, red blood cells and white blood cells) that are very functioning in repairing damaged tissue.
Generally, swelling will decrease at least 3-4 days after surgery, but this cannot be equated between one person to another, so that there are certain people who will experience swelling up to one week. Here we submit the treatment after tooth extraction so that the swelling subsides quickly, namely:
do not consume solid food, alcoholic beverages, coffee, soda or consume hot food and drinks.
Consumption of soft foods such as sum-sum porridge or fruit juice so you don't have to chew
compress the cheek from the location of the tooth extracted using cold compresses or use ice cubes to reduce swelling and pain that occurs
avoid and not scrape frozen blood clots or clot in the area of the former operation
gargle slowly either when you brush your teeth or gargle in the morning
We suggest to you, if within 1 week, the swelling does not visit less, then you should consult with a doctor who has treated your teeth so far. And get back to the doctor immediately if you experience swelling that increases with time, there is bleeding that does not stop at all, there is fever, or if there is fluid such as pus in the area of the former operation. Thus we can convey, hopefully our information is useful for you. That's all
