07 Jun What type of post treatment care will I need to follow?
It is essentials to follow your post-operative care instructions to ensure healing and prevent complications. You will be instructed to avoid rinsing and smoking for 24 hours following the extraction. If an antibiotic has been prescribed, it is important to complete the course to avoid infection. Finally, you may be advised to avoid drinking through a straw, certain foods and smoking as this will delay the healing process and cause a condition known as ‘dry socket’ – a painful complication you would want to avoid.
