When Is It Permissible To Chew Food On The Teeth Gums?
Good afternoon doctor, greetings prosperous.12 days ago, precisely on February 26, 2019 I pulled my left upper molars (L6) in oral surgery drg. The pain is felt approximately 5 daily but still can be tolerated. Well, now it is very tasty, although there is still a sense of discomfort in the gum, after I check with the middle glass of the gum like a hole in the middle (legok in the middle) does not hurt at all and there is still a little white. During tooth extraction, the part that is pulled out never makes a meal. Well, roughly when can I make an ideal meal? The thing is, I am afraid I will bleed again gums, hurt, or swell. Thank you for your attention and response.

After the graham tooth extraction, the healing process generally can last for 1 to 2 weeks. The condition of the gums that still look perforated and appear white patches after graham tooth extraction, as long as it is not accompanied by swelling, pain, or other complaints, often not dangerous. Slowly, the gums that are still hollow will come together so that no significant complaints arise again. Although, in some rare conditions, this condition can also occur due to dry socket (alveolar osteitis), which is a condition in which blood clots fail to form or detach after forming, causing the alveolar bone area of tooth extractions exposed and healing to be inhibited. This condition often causes pain that is quite disturbing so that it makes it difficult for sufferers to eat, talk, or even open their mouths.
If you view from your previous tooth extraction history that has lasted for more than 1 week, we recommend that you re-control the dentist or dentist oral surgery specialist. That way, doctors can evaluate what the condition of the gums and the surrounding area after tooth extraction now. If there are still signs of inflammation or even surgery after tooth extraction, your doctor can give you several types of drugs to overcome them while speeding healing. Later, you can go back to using the side of the jaw that has been pulled off after the gums that were previously hollowed together well and no longer cause pain or other symptoms of inflammation.
One more thing you need to consider, you should not let the gums whose teeth are pulled out empty for too long. You can consult your dentist again so that the tooth extracted gap is filled again, for example by installing dentures, crown bridges, or others. This action is needed to maintain the structure of the jaw and the surrounding teeth to remain good (not down).
Hope this helps ...
