What to do when food is stuck in hole left by pulled tooth?
For the first couple of days you should not do anything except
rinse very gently with salty water. Most likely this will not
disloge the food. You can get a special seringe from your dentist
to clean the area, but my dentist advised me to use it only after a
week or so. Yes, do nothing until the clot is formed and solid.
Then you may irrigate gently with something like those ear wax
bulbs, or swishing warm salt water around in your mouth.
