What should I do after having a tooth extracted?

Here are some tips to follow after having a tooth extracted:

  • Take painkillers as prescribed by Dr. Bundalo. An ice pack can also help with any swelling.
  • Make sure to not engage in any strenuous physical activity, which can cause bleeding.
  • Do not smoke.
  • When you sleep, prop your head up with a pillow.
  • Avoid touching the area with your tongue.
  • Do not use a straw to drink.
  • Eat soft foods at first, and gradually add solid foods.
