Hi Bambang,


Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.

Graham teeth, because of their structure that is firmly attached to the gum and jaw area, and has many roots containing blood vessels, often bleed for a long time after extraction. However, under normal conditions, this bleeding will stop in less than 1 to 2 times 24 hours after extraction. Therefore, if you have just had a Graham tooth extraction for less than 2 days, actually bleeding still does not always indicate an abnormality. In fact, it is not a dangerous thing to swallow the remaining blood from a tooth extraction. However, it is possible that this blood contains many microorganisms that can potentially cause you to develop an infection if large amounts are ingested. Ingesting excessive blood can also trigger nausea and vomiting in some sensitive people. Therefore, you should dispose of the blood by spitting (but avoid spitting too hard) and not swallowed excessively.


After Graham's tooth extraction, it is not advisable to rinse or brush your teeth too much. This is intended to allow time for the blood clot to fill the space in the gums after the tooth extraction is carried out. This blood clot is important for its function to limit the healing process of the gums and other surrounding tissues that have been injured after tooth extraction. Gargling or brushing your teeth too hard after removing a Graham tooth has the potential to cause dry socket, also known as alveolar osteitis, which is a condition in which a blood clot that has formed at the site of the tooth extraction comes off, causing the jawbone to be exposed and causing pain, making it prone to infection which is characterized by an unpleasant-smelling discharge from the area where the tooth was extracted. This condition can certainly further hinder the revocation process.


Our advice, to optimize the recovery and healing process after tooth extraction of Graham, you should do the following tips:

To minimize bleeding, press the area where the tooth was extracted with the cotton roll the dentist gave the dentist beforehand, do not dig into the tooth extraction mark.
Take medication that is often prescribed by the doctor after removing the tooth as recommended (usually the doctor will prescribe anti-pain, anti-inflammatory, and antibiotic drugs)
First avoid activities and sports that are too strenuous in the first 1 to 7 days after tooth extraction
Support your head with the pillow higher while sleeping to minimize swelling and bleeding in the teeth
For the first 1 to 2 days after tooth extraction, avoid gargling, spitting, vacuuming, and brushing your teeth too hard.
For 1 to 2 days, also avoid consuming drinks or foods that are too hot
Avoid smoking and alcohol
First, eat foods that are soft and easy to digest

If within 2 days the blood still hasn't stopped from the location of your tooth extraction, or if you experience other complaints, such as severe pain, unpleasant-smelling secretions from the tooth extraction site, fever, jaw stiffness, swelling, and so on, don't hesitate to check back with the dentist for further treatment huh ..


I hope this helps.
