The Process Of Tooth Growth After Wisdom Tooth Surgery?
I am Harun aged 23 .. I had surgery for my wisdom tooth but the traces of my tooth extraction still have holes and are very deep .. this is only the 7th day after surgery … is it normal or abnormal?
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Wisdom tooth eruptions often cause various problems related to improper position, impact, or also experiencing infection, causing the sufferer to feel pain, swelling, bad breath, and have significant difficulty chewing food, speaking, even opening the jaw. This condition needs to get the right treatment, including one with wisdom tooth extraction surgery, also known as odontectomy.
After surgery, usually wisdom tooth gums will close within 1 to 2 weeks. Therefore, your condition does not always indicate an abnormality. At this time, you can experience a variety of complaints, such as swelling, bruising, jaw stiffness, pain, taste problems, bad breath, to tingling or numbness around the mouth. As long as you don't experience the complaints above very badly, then chances are your condition is still relatively reasonable.
Try the following steps to make the recovery run faster:
Consumption of drugs given by the doctor after surgery regularly Reduce activities that are too tiring, including strenuous exercise. Elevate your head using a higher pillow while sleeping In the first 1 to 2 days after surgery, avoid brushing, gargling, or excessive spitting Avoid smoking or consume alcohol First eat foods that are easy to digest, such as juices, porridge, or foods with gravy. Chew the food with the other side of your teeth (which is not completely pulled out) for a while Drink plenty of warm water However, if within 2 weeks your gums still seem not closed , or other complaints arise (as mentioned above) with very great intensity, you should go back to the dental specialist who operated on you before. It is feared that if your gums have not closed it is due to dry socket (alveolar osteitis), which is a disorder in which a blood clot fails to form or comes apart from the gums where the teeth have been extracted, preventing the healing process.
Hope it helps ..
