What are some side effects I should expect after wisdom teeth removal?


Answer by  Pinto (166)

Pain is the most common side effect you could expect. However you may also have some pus formation due to food particles getting stuck there. Simple gargling will not help. You will have to gargle with salt water to avoid infection.

You should expect some cheek swelling and your gums will be sore. The doctor should give you some painkillers after the removal and expect to sleep off the anesthesia.

The most common side effect is infection. This is because we avoid brushing that area due to the pain.Thus , food particles accumulate in the empty space and cause infections.

After wisdom teeth removal a patient will experience bleeding for approximately 24 hours following the procedure. Gauze should be placed on the gum and changed every two hours. If bleding is heavy, placing a tea bag on the area may help. Expect to chew foods on the opposite side of the mouth.
