We all have gone through those terrible days after a tooth extraction and tried several things to heal our gums. Edmonton dentists suggests that eating ice cream and taking plenty of rest aren’t the only things you must do to heal your gums. Below are a few other tips that you must consider to ensure speedy healing of your gums after a tooth extraction.
Bite a Gauze Tightly
Your Edmonton dentist will place a gauze over the extraction site to stop bleeding and promote gum healing. Bite down tightly on this gauze and apply pressure to the area to stop the bleeding. Biting down tightly will ensure that the gauze stays in place and encourages clot formation. Don’t change the gauze for first 1-2 hours unless there is heavy bleeding.
