Patients in Marietta ask if they can drink water after tooth extraction procedures

The team at 32 Dental believes in providing education to patients about treatments during every step of the process. From the initial appointments and consultations to recovery, patients in Marietta and beyond can count on the caring and gentle dental professionals at our Kennesaw office. We believe it is important that patients understand how to care for their teeth, mouth, and gums after a procedure. For tooth extraction treatments, many patients will ask if they can drink water after the procedures. We encourage patients to drink plenty of fluids, including water. However, we recommend drinking on the opposite side of the affected area. We also provide various tips for optimal healing and recovery.

For the first 24 hours, we recommend avoiding:
  • Spitting
  • Sucking on candy
  • Sipping through a straw
  • Rinsing the mouth
  • Brushing or flossing next to the socket
  • Sneezing
  • Coughing
  • Hot, carbonated, or alcoholic drinks
  • Spicy foods
If there is any bleeding, we recommend biting down on a gauze pad for 40-60 minutes and repeat with a clean gauze pad after an hour. If there is swelling, apply an ice pack to the cheek for 20 minutes and remove it for 20 minutes. After 24 hours have passed, apply moist heat to reduce swelling and rinse with warm salt water three times a day. Eat and drink on the opposite side of the mouth. After 24 hours, gently brush and floss around the area. We recommend taking any prescribed antibiotics to aid in healing and recovery.

Extractions are recommended when there is no other way to save the teeth. We ensure the utmost comfort during the procedure and answer any questions throughout the treatment process. Severely decayed or damaged teeth may need to be extracted when they cannot be saved with root canal therapy. We often recommend considering dental implants to replace the missing teeth. Dental implants can last a lifetime with excellent care and maintenance. Patients can embrace renewed confidence and restored beauty to their smiles after treatment.

    Dr. Vo and Dr. Breckly are absolutely fantastic! Never worry about another painful trip to the dentist if you are going to see them. They make sure you are never in any pain throughout the entire procedure. I just had my wisdom teeth removed and Dr. Vo did a fabulous job, as always. I had four impacted wisdom teeth and they were out before I knew it. I was up and eating solid food the very same day, and could have been back at work if I needed to. My stitches fell out within a few days and everything healed up much faster than any of my friends who saw other doctors. I stayed awake for the procedure, and I would say that it definitely is much better than being put to sleep. It has a faster heal time and less discomfort. My face honestly didn't even swell. I've gone to Dr. Vo and Breckly for minor things before and they have always been amazing, but after my great experience with something more major, I know they are by far the two of the best dentists, I have ever seen.

    Dr. Vo and Dr. Berkley are the ONLY dentists we see. Dr. Vos taken care of my parents, my husband, our daughter and son, and myself for the past 7 years. We love the care and the personal relationship she establishes with her patients. She takes the time to get to know us, our families, our dental concerns, which is NOT the usual in the business.Thank you for everything. Dr. Berkley is very attentive and gently with my children. We came in for a cleaning yesterday and they did great under his medical care. The staff is extremely professional and willing to help. Amazing team. If you have been afraid of the dentist, check them out and theyll change your mind about dentistry.

    My family and I love Dr. Vo. I would suggest this practice to anyone who wants a dentist and staff that truly care about your health and will go above and beyond the typical dentist. I followed Dr. Vo from a previous office, and although this office is farther away, it is worth it because of how caring the staff is.

    Switched to 32 dental after Dr. Breckley left Dr. Goetees practice. Great staff, and nice space. They use the latest technologies and have K cups in the waiting room!

    Dr. Vo is fantastic. She is patient, knowledgeable, and excellent at her job, and most importantly, she takes time to answer your questions and explain any concerns she has about your teeth, so you really know what\'s going on. It inspires me to take better care of my teeth. By far, she is the best dentist I have been been to, and I highly recommend her. No more of those dime-a-dozen dentists for me!
