The Tongue Looks Yellowish White After The Odontectomy Process?
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Odontectomy is an operation performed to extract (remove, remove) a partially or completely implanted (impacted) tooth in the jawbone (upper or lower). This condition often occurs in wisdom teeth (third molars), although it does not rule out other teeth as well.
After odontectomy, the recovery process will usually take about 1 to 2 weeks. During this time, sufferers often experience various complaints, such as pain, swelling, redness, numbness, stiffness, tingling, bad breath, taste disturbances, and so on. This complaint is not only limited to the area of the gums where the teeth have been pulled out, but can also spread to the tongue, the inside of the lips, or to the jaw and throat.
Judging from the time your surgery was performed less than 1 week ago, chances are that your condition is still normal. You try to overcome your complaint first with the following steps:
Underwent treatment as recommended by the doctor after surgery Brush your teeth regularly, then continue by rinsing with salt water to relieve inflammation around the oral cavity (but avoid toothbrushes and gargles that are too hard) In the meantime, consume more foods that are soft, broth in texture, not too cold, and not too hot. Limit chewing food using the side of the gums where the teeth have been pulled out before the surgery is closed properly Avoid drinking using a straw or throwing excessive saliva in the first 1 to 2 weeks after surgery Limit physical activity that is too tiring , including excessive exercise before the surgery scar closes completely Stay away from cigarettes Stay away from alcohol If your complaint does not improve in 1 to 2 weeks, or you experience other complaints, such as repeated bleeding, discharge of pus from the surgery scar, fever, pain or prolonged numbness in mouth area, seba I recommend that you immediately consult the dentist who treated you before in order to get the best treatment.
I hope this helps.
