It is highly essential that you follow the dentist’s instructions after tooth extraction. Also, you should take any medication that they will prescribe; usually over the counter ibuprofen for reducing swelling, speeding recovery, and minimizing discomfort.
While brushing or flossing, a dentist would advise that it should be the normal way. However, you should avoid rinsing the area or spitting forcefully within the first 24 hours. Additionally, you can consult you, dentists, if anything happens before the area can recover fully.
