Extraction of a wisdom tooth

I found out about them too late, so about an hour after tooth extraction, I rinsed my mouth and got rid of blood clots. The hole is now only slightly bloody, clearly drier and more open than it should have been. Is this a critical mistake, or will it just slow down the protraction process and nothing to worry about? Tomato seeds also got there, what to do with it?

If you wash off the blood clot from the hole, there is a risk of inflammation - alveolitis. According to statistics, after tooth extraction, alveolitis occurs in 35% of patients. Dry socket syndrome is the first stage of alveolitis. If food bits get into the wound, the chance of infection increases. Do not try to remove particles from the hole on your own, otherwise you can easily damage the “young” tissue and disrupt the regeneration process. Then the inflammation will move to the bone and cause osteitis. The first signs of inflammation of the hole are increased pain and swelling.

In order to avoid complications, with a dry hole, you must definitely contact your dentist. He will rinse the hole, remove pieces of food and apply anti-inflammatory drugs and ointments that accelerate healing.

We recommend that you contact a surgeon to remove food debris from the well and treat it with antiseptics. If necessary, the doctor will put a medicine in the hole, which will speed up its healing.
