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.

    I've been seeing Dr. Breckley and Dr. Vo since they opened this practice, and I'm still a huge fan. I recently had some dental work done with them (like this morning). I've never doubted the doctors' abilities, and this experience was no exception. They are experts and are very good at their craft. I want to also mention the support staff, especially the women on the front desk. They are thorough, helpful, and so very nice. I've never experienced the follow-up and follow through at another practice as I have with them at 32 Dental. I always know what my bill will be. There are never any surprises, and that is so comforting in this day of American healthcare. :) I'll continue to refer my friends to them and patron their practice based on my experiences with them! Thanks!

    My 8 year old son had to have 2 teeth pulled because the babies just didn't want to let go. The whole procedure went amazing! My son was like "Wait we're done already? I didn't feel anything! Wow." I would definitely recommend this practice to anyone who wants both kids and adults to be taken care of at the same location!

    32 Dental was quick and kind. The office staff was efficient and the dentist was very thorough. He referred me to a specialist due to the type of root canal needed. He was able to find one available for the same day. I will definitely use them in the future.
