Before you go through with wisdom teeth surgery, it's essential to make sure your oral hygiene is in top-notch condition. This means brushing your teeth, flossing, and taking care of your teeth and gums twice a day. On the morning of the procedure, brush and rinse with mouthwash or water. However, avoid brushing your teeth after the surgery as it can irritate the spaces where your wisdom teeth were. It's important to follow your doctor's instructions for the best results.

When it comes to wisdom tooth extraction, there are a few things you should be aware of before the operation. After the surgery, a blood clot forms at the extraction site. It's important to keep the area clean and dry for at least 24 hours after the procedure. You should also avoid drinking through a straw or smoking for at least 24 hours after the surgery.
This will help reduce the risk of infection. Your doctor may also recommend that you take antibiotics before and after the surgery. This will help reduce the risk of infection and ensure that your recovery is as smooth as possible. It's also important to eat soft foods for a few days after the surgery. This will help reduce swelling and pain. Avoid eating hard or crunchy foods as they can irritate the extraction site. Finally, make sure to get plenty of rest after the surgery.
This will help your body heal faster and reduce any discomfort you may be feeling.
