I only got one pulled, simple extraction. Done about two hours ago.

I feel fine, didn't go under so I'm not loopy.

Food is going to be the only issue.

Any tips on what to eat on the first day? They said no rinsing, so should I just drink some fluid after before re applying gauze?

Dont use a straw and dont smoke.
You dont want dry socket...ouch.

Other than that it's not a big deal.

I'm going to start aggressively hitting that guy with bourbon tomorrow.

For hygenics sake, kill all that naughty bacteria. No dry socket for this guy.

Thanks for the advice

Instead of gauze, use a wet tea bag. I use earl grey, it helps with clotting faster.

I thought you were being serious for a second.

Too funny.

Yeah, you want it to clot. Nothing more miserable than getting sick to your stomach because you've been swallowing your own blood all night and having to wrench open a severely bruised jaw to do it.

Avoid rice. My mom got her sockets packed with rice grains after tearing out her stitches cheering at a basketball game and had to spend a fun time getting every grain picked back out again.

Just take it easy with things that aren't going to tax your jaws too much. Mine got really bruised after I had mine out.

Top or bottom tooth? When I got my tops removed I was eating same day with zero pain. The dentist removed both in about 45seconds after My freezing was in.

Bottoms different story, painkillers and mashed potatoes.

Dry socket is the pits. Takes forever to clear up if you don't go back to the dentist. Been there and done that and it's prolonged misery.


a reply to: Muninn No, no, no, no sucking....

Agree with using a teabag. Just pick a flavor you like.

Totally disagree with the no smoking tho, have had mine pulled an was smoking before I got out of the parking lot. As long as you remember it's an open wound that has to heal from the inside out an keep it clean an damp you'll be fine.

Oh ... don't talk to me about dry socket. I had to call in the dentist on his off hours and he asked me if I could take the packing without painkiller so we didn't have to wait for the nurse to come in a monitor the NO2 ... WORST DECISION EVER.

It was like having a red-hot poker jammed down my jaw.

I had wisdom teeth pulled on 2 different occasions, here's what worked for me:

1. Don't use any straws/beer bottles/etc for a while, nothing that could create a "vacuum" in your mouth.
2. Soup for a day or 2, then I moved on to relatively soft foods: potatoes, pb&j, etc.

I was back to normal in less than a week, fwiw.

Yeah, like a Wendy's Frosty right out of the machine!

Damn near sucked one of my eyeballs outta' the socket once tryin' to get some of that Frosty through the dang straw. Thought my head was gonna' implode. One leg was shorter than the other for about a week (walked around in big circles).
