Tooth Extraction Care

The reason you may get a tooth pulled is because either: there is not enough room for it and tooth will become impacted, it must be removed to assure that the rest of your teeth grow properly, or tooth so severely decayed that it is beyond repair. But as beneficial as tooth extraction can be, it is also a very painful and tedious recovery process.

The tooth extraction cost varies with the difficulty of the procedure and fortunately, there are usually very few tooth extraction complications. A tooth extraction complication is rare but when it does occur it includes tooth extraction dry socket, tooth extraction pain, tooth extraction infection and tooth extraction bleeding.

Many problems can be avoided with good tooth extraction care so it is very important to know what to do after a tooth extraction. Pain after tooth extraction is the most common tooth extraction problem and is most common after a surgical tooth extraction. Good care after tooth extraction greatly assists tooth extraction healing and often helps avoid an infected tooth extraction socket.

Tooth Extraction Care, What Is It?

Good tooth extraction care helps reduce the follow up complications related to oral surgery. The most important thing is to take excellent care of yourself after your surgery. Part of excellent tooth extraction care is to rest and keep comfortable.

It is almost always best to stay home and not work for a few days after tooth extraction procedure. Eating well is an important part of tooth extraction care. The body will use the food you eat to heal the area that you had tooth extraction in. Taking medications to prevent problems is another important step in tooth extraction care. Antibiotics are absolutely necessary to avoid an infection after tooth extraction.

What To Do After Tooth Extraction

Control Bleeding

First and foremost, you must prevent excessive bleeding by promoting the formation of a blood clot. What that means is for several hours after your surgery, you should softly bite down on a piece of gauze. And for a whole day do not rinse, drink with a straw, or smoke.

Bite firmly the gauze pack over the surgical area for, at least, 1/2 hour; then discard it gently. Some blood will ooze from the area of surgery for several hours and it is normal. Do not spit, or suck through a straw, since this will promote bleeding. When bleeding persists at home, place a gauze pad or cold wet teabag over the area and bite firmly for 30 minutes. Avoid rubbing the area with your tongue. Keep your head elevated on several pillows or sit in a lounge chair for 12 hours. Do not smoke for 24 hours after surgery because this will cause bleeding, pain and interfere with healing.


Do not rinse your mouth or brush your teeth for the first 12 hours after the surgical appointment. Then use warm salt water (1/2 teaspoon salt in 1/2 cup [4 ounces] of warm water) after tooth-brushing and every 2 hours.


Exercise is a no-no for at least a week. Proper tooth extraction care requires that you rest. But don't worry, you won't need to burn any calories as you will only be able to drink liquids (not from a straw though) and eat soft foods for a couple of days after your surgery.

Get plenty of rest; at least 8 to 10 hours of sleep each night. Avoid strenuous exercise during the first 24 hours, and keep the mouth from excessive movement. Physical activity may increase bleeding.


Use a liquid or soft diet high in protein. Drink a large volume of water and fruit juices. Do not drink through a straw because this may promote bleeding. Avoid hot food for the first 24 hours after surgery because this may promote bleeding. Eat a soft diet for the first 24 hours after tooth extraction. Avoid foods that require excessive chewing. You can resume a normal diet the day after tooth removal.

Don't chew foods on the side of your mouth where your tooth was pulled! Leave that area alone, even when brushing your teeth.

Pain and Discomfort after Tooth Extraction

Some discomfort is normal after surgery. It can be controlled by taking the pain medication your dentist has prescribed or recommended. Start taking your pain pills before the numbing medication has worn off. Take your pain pill with an 8 oz. glass of water and/or a small amount of food to prevent nausea. Over-the-counter pain medications or Painkillers may be used for temporary pain relief. Do not overdosing on these generic drugs: Aspirin, or Ibuprofen, or Ketoprofen, or Naproxen Sodium, or Acataminophen.

Tooth extraction care may not seem like very fun and you might be rethinking all the benefits of getting a tooth pulled now, but your dentist will prescribe medications to relieve the pain and swelling so just take it easy and use tooth extraction care as an excuse to eat some ice cream.

Handling Dental Emergencies: What to Do

Any injury to the teeth or gums can be potentially serious and should not be ignored. Ignoring a dental problem can increase the risk of permanent damage as well as the need for more extensive and expensive treatment down the road.

Here's a quick summary of what to do for some common dental problems.

  • Toothachest. First, thoroughly rinse your mouth with warm water. Use dental floss to remove any lodged food. If your mouth is swollen, apply a cold compress to the outside of your mouth or cheek. Never put aspirin or any other painkiller against the gums near the aching tooth because it may burn the gum tissue. See your dentist as soon as possible.

  • Chipped or broken teeth. Save any pieces. Rinse the mouth using warm water; rinse any broken pieces. If there's bleeding, apply a piece of gauze to the area for about 10 minutes or until the bleeding stops. Apply a cold compress to the outside of the mouth, cheek, or lip near the broken/chipped tooth to keep any swelling down and relieve pain. See your dentist as soon as possible.

  • Knocked-out tooth. Retrieve the tooth, hold it by the crown (the part that is usually exposed in the mouth), and rinse off the tooth root with water if it's dirty. Do not scrub it or remove any attached tissue fragments. If possible, try to put the tooth back in place. Make sure it's facing the right way. Never force it into the socket. If it's not possible to reinsert the tooth in the socket, put the tooth in a small container of milk (or cup of water that contains a pinch of table salt, if milk is not available) or a product containing cell growth medium, such as Save-a-Tooth. In all cases, see your dentist as quickly as possible. Knocked out teeth with the highest chances of being saved are those seen by the dentist and returned to their socket within 1 hour of being knocked out.

  • Extruded (partially dislodged) tooth. See your dentist right away. Until you reach your dentist's office, to relieve pain, apply a cold compress to the outside of the mouth or cheek in the affected area. Take an over-the-counter pain reliever (such as Tylenol or Advil) if needed.

  • Objects caught between teeth. First, try using dental floss to very gently and carefully remove the object. If you can't get the object out, see your dentist. Never use a pin or other sharp object to poke at the stuck object. These instruments can cut your gums or scratch your tooth surface.

  • Lost filling. As a temporary measure, stick a piece of sugarless gum into the cavity (sugar-filled gum will cause pain) or use an over-the-counter dental cement. See your dentist as soon as possible.

  • Lost crown. If the crown falls off, make an appointment to see your dentist as soon as possible and bring the crown with you. If you can't get to the dentist right away and the tooth is causing pain, use a cotton swab to apply a little clove oil to the sensitive area (clove oil can be purchased at your local drug store or in the spice aisle of your grocery store). If possible, slip the crown back over the tooth. Before doing so, coat the inner surface with an over-the-counter dental cement, toothpaste, or denture adhesive, to help hold the crown in place. Do not use super glue!

  • Broken braces wires. If a wire breaks or sticks out of a bracket or band and is poking your cheek, tongue or gum, try using the eraser end of a pencil to push the wire into a more comfortable position. If you can't reposition the wire, cover the end with orthodontic wax, a small cotton ball, or piece of gauze until you can get to your orthodontist's office. Never cut the wire, as you could end up swallowing it or breathing it into your lungs.

  • Loose brackets and bands. Temporarily reattach loose braces with a small piece of orthodontic wax. Alternatively, place the wax over the braces to provide a cushion. See your orthodontist as soon as possible. If the problem is a loose band, save it and call your orthodontist for an appointment to have it recemented or replaced (and to have missing spacers replaced).

  • Abscess . Abscesses are infections that occur around the root of a tooth or in the space between the teeth and gums. Abscesses are a serious condition that can damage tissue and surrounding teeth, with the infection possibly spreading to other parts of the body if left untreated.

  • Because of the serious oral health and general health problems that can result from an abscess, see your dentist as soon as possible if you discover a pimple-like swelling on your gum that usually is painful. In the meantime, to ease the pain and draw the pus toward the surface, try rinsing your mouth with a mild salt water solution (1/2 teaspoon of table salt in 8 ounces of water) several times a day.

  • Soft-tissue injuries . Injuries to the soft tissues, which include the tongue, cheeks, gums and lips, can result in bleeding. To control the bleeding, here's what to do:

    1. Rinse your mouth with a mild salt-water solution.
    2. Use a moistened piece of gauze or tea bag to apply pressure to the bleeding site. Hold in place for 15 to 20 minutes.
    3. To both control bleeding and relieve pain, hold a cold compress to the outside of the mouth or cheek in the affected area for 5 to 10 minutes.
    4. If the bleeding doesn't stop, see your dentist right away or go to a hospital emergency room. Continue to apply pressure on the bleeding site with the gauze until you can be seen and treated.

10 Benefits of Dental Implants

Most people are familiar with dentures as replacements for missing teeth, but may not know much about the advantages that dental implants offer over dentures. For centuries man has endeavored to find a more natural replacement for missing teeth.

Modern, space age materials have allowed that quest to become a reality. Today’s dental implant is possible because of these materials combined with years of research and clinical trials. The dental implant is truly the most natural solution for missing teeth.

Dental implants are an effective, safe and predictable solution to the problems resulting from missing teeth. Many patients report exciting benefits from dental implants, such as:

• Dental implants are the closest possible replacement to natural teeth.

• They make replacement teeth stable for eating and smiling with confidence.

• Dental implants remove the need to cut down healthy teeth for a bridge.

• They can eliminate the pain caused by ill-fitting dentures.

• Dental implants help preserve the bone in the jaws.

• In some cases, they help maintain the shape of the face.
Implants are a safe, highly effective and comfortable way to replace your missing teeth. Lets talk about them more concrete:

1. Dental Implant Improve Appearance:

When teeth are lost, ongoing shrinkage of the jawbone occurs making the face look older. Dental implants can slow or stop this process. Dental implants look and feel like your own natural teeth.

2. Benefit of Dental Implant: Improved Comfort

Dental implants eliminate the pain and discomfort of removable full or partial dentures. Since dentures sit on top of the jawbone and gums, continuous shrinkage of the jaw bone alters the fit of the denture resulting in slipping or rocking of the dentures. Exposed nerves and irritation of the gum tissue may add to the discomfort.

Implant supported replacement teeth are like natural teeth because they are anchored securely to your jawbone. Gum irritation and the pain of exposed nerves associated with conventional full or partial dentures are eliminated.

3. Benefit of Dental Implant: Improved Speech

With ill fitting dentures, the teeth slip and slide around the mouth. The facial muscles become tense in an attempt to hold the teeth in place. This often results in mumbling, slurred speech or clicking noises. Replacement teeth allow you to speak with confidence in a relaxed and natural tone.

4. With Dental Implant You Will Eat Better

The average denture patient with an excellent fitting denture eats at 15-20% efficiency when compared to a person with natural teeth. As the jawbone shrinks, your chewing efficiency is reduced even more, making it difficult to eat certain foods. Dental implants can restore chewing efficiency comparable to that of natural teeth.

This allows you to eat your favorite foods with confidence and without pain, enjoy what everyone is eating and not think twice about it. A full upper denture covers the palate of the mouth and reduces the ability to taste foods. With dental implants, you can have the palate removed from your upper denture so you can taste and enjoy your food.

5. Benefit of Dental Implant: Convenience

Dental implants can eliminate the numerous embarrassing inconveniences of removable partial and full dentures. You will eliminate the use of gooey denture adhesives that must be re-applied throughout the day. You will no longer need to cover your mouth when you laugh or smile, for fear that your teeth will pop out or fall down.

6. Protect Your Remaining Natural Teeth with Dental Implant

Dental implants are often more appropriate than a bridge for the replacement of one or more adjacent teeth. With conventional bridgework, the teeth surrounding missing teeth must be ground down. Dental implants often eliminate the need to modify these teeth, resulting in a conservative, yet esthetic restoration.

Normally, the bone in the area of a tooth is maintained by your body. But if a tooth is absent anywhere in the jaw, the bone will slowly atrophy. By placing an implant in your mouth, the implant stimulates the bone so that your body will continue to maintain the bone in the area, much like a natural tooth. Bone loss can be a problem for people with dentures - and can also make the face look older as the area around the mouth can sag as bone is lost

7. Benefit of Dental Implant: Improved Self Esteem

Considering all other benefits, dental implants can improve your self-esteem. You may feel better about yourself. You can regain nearly all the capabilities that most people have with natural teeth, giving you renewed confidence, and allowing you to enjoy life, do what everyone else is doing and not think twice about it.

8. Benefit of Dental Implant: No decay

Implants and implant supported teeth do not decay, so you don’t need to worry about changes or a loss of function to your implants, or cavities.

9. Benefit of Dental Implant: Periodontal Disease

Implants can be less prone to gum problems than natural teeth. In cases where people have lost some or all of their teeth due to gum (periodontal) disease, implants can be used to replace the missing teeth. Because the offending tooth or teeth are removed, the environment in the area improves and you have a second chance at healthy gums. Proper home and professional cleaning is still very important for long term health. However, since implant surfaces exposed in the mouth are very smooth, there is typically less plaque and tartar buildup with implants.

10. Benefit of Dental Implant: Reliability

Success rates for dental implants are very high and the longevity of a implant restoration can be a lifetime. Of course good oral health, healthy gum tissue and good bone structure help increase the effectiveness.

All these improvements make people with dentures feel better about themselves, increasing their self confidence while improving their social and business lives.

Dental implants are truly a revolution, solving an age old problem safely and predictably. Implant dentistry can change the smiles and lives of millions for years to come.

Is Teeth Whitening Safe or Not?

Although teeth are not naturally meant to be completely white, many people want a brighter smile. Tooth bleaching has become the most popular way for dentists to help their patients obtain whiter smiles.

Professional Teeth Bleaching

Prior to the 1990’s essentially the only teeth bleaching option that was available to people was “in-office” teeth bleaching treatments performed by the person’s dentist. The term “in-office” used here simply means that the actual bleaching process was performed by the dentist while the patient was in their dental chair.

When an in-office teeth bleaching your dentist will put a rubber seal around your teeth to protect your gums. Then, the bleaching gel is painted onto your teeth and a special, bright light is pointed at them. This light speeds up the bleaching process. The procedure takes one to two hours. The effects of in-office tooth bleaching are immediate.

Teeth Bleaching at Home

“At-home” teeth bleaching, is a more recent phenomenon. It became popular in the 1990’s and is now the most common dentist dispensed method by which teeth are whitened.

Firstly, your dentist makes the rubber mouthguards so that they fit your teeth precisely, and secondly, the bleaching gel is stronger so it tends to be more effective. Your dentist will give you tubes of bleaching gel and instructions on how to put the gel in the mouthguards.

You will need to wear the mouthguards for a few hours each day. It may take a few weeks to achieve the color that you want.

“At-home” tooth bleaching has some advantages over in-office bleaching. The whitener that is used typically contains a much lower concentration of peroxide, thus making the potential for problems associated with side effects less of an issue.

Side Effect of Tooth Bleaching

In some studies, patients have experienced uncomfortable short-term side effects when having teeth bleached. Hydrogen peroxide can increase temperature sensitivity in the teeth, particularly at higher concentrations, and nightguards often cause gum irritation.

There is also a possibility of over-bleaching. The result will be a translucency that may appear gray from the shadows of the mouth. There is a very low percentage of this occurring, and only if the bleaching process is over-extended you should consult your dentist.

Since 1989 a number of dental researchers have investigated various safety considerations that might be associated with tooth bleaching. This research has led to the general consensus that while this technique is not without side effects, dentist-dispensed at-home tray-based teeth whitening systems utilizing a 10% carbamide peroxide whitener are safe to use.

In fact this type of whitening system has gained wide acceptance by the dental community as a whole. The overwhelming majority of dentists do offer tray teeth whitening systems to their patients.On the whole, dentists regard the procedure of tooth bleaching to be a safe one. Thus, Dr Mervyn Druian, of the BDA, says: “It is a safe, effective procedure that we have used with great success for a long time.”Dentist Dr Jonathan Levy thinks that tooth bleaching: “… is very effective, very efficient and very comfortable for the patient. It is nice to give patients instant results. They come in with a dull smile, and they go out with a bright smile.”

Contra-Indications For Tooth Whitening

Tooth bleaching is not recommended for smokers or alcohol users. Smokers should stop smoking before having their teeth bleached. The smoking not only defeats the effect of tooth bleaching but there is concern about the mixture of hydrogen peroxide with smoking having a potentiating effect on tissue damage already known to be caused by smoking.

If you have pre-existing cosmetic restoration (bonding, porcelain crowns or veneers) you may need to replace them after tooth bleaching in order to match your new, whiter smile.

Stains in the gray family (such as from tetracycline) can be harder to remove, if not impossible. These stains can take up to six months or longer to whiten. The best candidates for tooth bleaching are those with stains caused by coffee, tobacco or aging.

It is important for you to understand that every individual’s teeth respond in a unique way to tooth bleaching. Overall, tooth bleaching under professional supervision is an effective method for whitening the teeth.

Healthy Eating, Healthy Mouth

Losing extra pounds, revving up physical activity, and eating nutritious foods may give you a new reason to smile.

Healthy teeth and gums are more common in active people who eat nutritiously and aren’t overweight.

The study appears in the Journal of Periodontology. It was conducted by researchers including Nabil Bissada, DDS, chairman of the periodontics department at Case Western Reserve University School of Dental Medicine.

Healthy Body, Healthy Mouth

Data came from a national health survey of more than 12,000 people. The findings:

• Having all three traits - normal weight, good diet, active lifestyle - cut gum disease risk by 40%.

• Having two of those habits cut gum disease risk by 29%.

• Having one of those healthy habits cut gum disease risk by 16%.

Gum disease was rarest among people with all three traits. Only 7% of them had gum disease, compared with 18% of those with none of those traits.

Benefits for the Mouth

Why did the mouth mirror overall health? The researchers note these possibilities:

• Healthy foods such as fruits and vegetables may help clear plaque off teeth.

Obesity may promote inflammatory chemicals linked to gum disease.

• Physical activity may cut inflammation, helping the entire body (including the mouth).

Researchers from the Case Western Reserve University in the US who examined data from 12,110 individuals reported that those who exercised, had healthy eating habits and maintained a normal weight were 40 per cent less likely to develop periodontitis.

More than 30 per cent of the population is thought to suffer from periodontitis, an infection of the gums that can result in tooth loss, but also leads to heart disease, diabetes and pre-term labor.

Advances in dental medicine have permitted more people to keep their teeth as they grow older. Understanding the underlying ways to prevent gum diseases have become increasingly important, according to the researchers.

Curious whether the same factors that can prevent heart disease and lower the risks for diabetes might also impact oral health, the researchers examined the cumulative relationship between weight, exercise and a high-quality diet and dental disease in the United States population.

Researchers concluded that the healthy behaviors such as exercise and diet that lower the risks of diabetes also can lower the risk factors for periodontitis.

Exercise is known to reduce the C-reactive protein in the blood associated with inflammation in the heart and periodontal disease, while healthy eating habits, which builds the body’s defenses against disease, also reduce the production of plaque biofilm, which is the primary epidemiological factor associated with periodontal disease, explained the researchers.

Conquering periodontal disease, according to the researchers, may mean more than just targeting the disease but addressing multiple risk behaviors, too.

“Since oral health professionals may see their patients two or four times a year, it gives them several opportunities to promote these healthy behaviors,” report the researchers.

Dental Work Overseas

For most people needing medical care, the last thing on their minds is travel but a growing number of American medical tourists are setting out for Latin America, India, and Thailand for everything from dental work to breast implants to major heart surgery. Rising health care costs in the US push people to seek medical treatments elsewhere, while medical facilities in developing countries have not only caught up to western standards but also in many ways exceeded them. These tourists are usually surprised to find brand new facilities and equipment as hospitals and medical tourism hubs around the world join in the fierce competition for this fast growing market.

The price is the main reason most people initially cite for their decision to go overseas for medical treatment, but the situation is actually even better than the bare numbers suggest. Figures that are normally thrown out range from one quarter to one tenth the price of US care, with dental work firmly occupying the one-tenth corner.

Dental work is the biggest saver with medical tourism , as a rule of thumb, minor work on one tooth will pay for your plane ticket and a second pays for a week on the beach afterwards. Major surgery will pay for your entire family. Imaging and diagnostics are a large part of medical fees, and many US hospitals now contract with foreign laboratories to interpret X-rays and MRI images, where the physician time to analyze the image often costs as much or more than the image itself. Unfortunately, many patients aren’t able to travel if they need an MRI, but if it is a component of a surgery or checkup it is widely available at most high-end hospitals that medical tourists frequent, along with more advanced diagnostic equipment in some of the best facilities.

Beyond having a lower price, however, foreign hospitals are far more willing to provide upfront prices and quotes than US hospitals, which will generally equivocate and, if pressed, give only a rough estimate. More complicated surgeries will still be estimates at foreign clinics, but they are consistently more forthcoming about the cost of past procedures and for minor procedures they will often offer set packages that cap the total cost, barring complications. These caps are excellent for planning purposes and comparing options in various countries. This openness is a product both of intense competition for foreign patients and a confidence that regardless of how high a foreign clinics’ price may be, it will still be much lower than their Western competition. Medical tourism reverses the trend of many businesses and the tourism industry in general in that those looking overseas can expect more honesty up-front and fewer hidden costs than those considering a US hospital.

One common misconception is that while foreign medical procedures are much cheaper, they must be paid out of pocket. It is telling that even with this belief, the deductible for many insured patients is so high that they still travel overseas for treatment. The reality is that most insurers are not only willing to reimburse your medical expenses overseas, they will often be thrilled to solve your problem without paying domestic medical rates. The issue then becomes getting your records and receipts to the appropriate insurance official. Many hospitals boast strong ties with insurance companies and service with regards to clearing claims as their key advantage over competitors. If insurance reimbursement is an important part of your medical tourism deliberations, it is important to learn up front if your prospective hospital offers this service and it will be worthwhile to go to a more expensive center if they do not. This is particularly important when looking at Indian hospitals, which often are very poor in this regard. Tourists from countries with state-run medical systems like Canada and the UK can also often get their treatments reimbursed, though they will need to locate the appropriate offices and forms ahead of time.

Medical tourism it offers strong advantages both in the lower cost and in the superior service of the medical care while the opportunity to travel and vacation should not be underestimated. With few exceptions, medical tourism should be considered for any non-emergency procedure, from a filling to a hip replacement. Once the decision to go abroad has been made, the next step it to choose the destination
