Post-operative instructions

Post Operative Instructions – After an operation, a blood clot will form in the socket where the tooth used to be. This is NOT to be disturbed by vigorous rinsing, or by disturbing the site with your tongue or finger, as it is a very important part of the healing process.

If the socket begins to bleed after you have left the our Berwick Dental Clinic, place the clean gauze you had been provided with over the extraction site and apply pressure by biting down. The bleeding will usually stop within a few minutes. Again, refrain from disturbing the blood clot. If the bleeding does persist, please contact us for further advice.

Your mouth will still be numb for some time after the local anaesthetic, so please take care not to bite your cheek or tongue, or burn your mouth when drinking hot liquids.

Avoid smoking and alcohol for 24 hours, as these can negatively effect on the healing process.

You may be in a little discomfort after the anaesthetic has worn off. Taking a painkiller will help, but always follow the manufacturer’s instructions. Do NOT take aspirin as this may cause the socket to bleed.
