Usually, the next day. However, Rinse your mouth out with a little warm water and salt (a few dashes) in a glass. Just swish it around gently. Rinse your mouth out with a salt and water mixture aprx. Three times a day. Your dentist should have given you an antibiotic to fight any type of potential infection that could arise as well. Wait 24 hours before rincing. The reason for that is not to dislodge the blood cloth that forms during the few hours after the surgery. After 24 hours, it is recommended to rince with a disinfecting solution, preferably water and salt.

Is it possible to make your teeth crooked by your wisdom teeth if they are already straight mine are growing towards my teeth?

Your wisdom teeth will most likely make your other teeth crooked if they are impacted and growing sideways in your mouth..they also make it harder to clean the teeth that they are impacted into (your molars) Get them pulled out before this becomes a bigger problem An impacted wisdom tooth is very painful and often only continues with brief periods of relief from the pain by a couple months. You do not want to end up in the emergency room over this which will charge you a pretty penny and be starving at the same time because its impossble to eat your in so much pain. If your wisdom teeth are pulled what will happen is that the front teeth will be able to space out in the front by filling up the space that was once the crowded wisdom teeth in the back. This should always be done by a professional or at the very least a dental school because clinics that just pull teeth can often make mistakes like breaking teeth which lead to infections.

Will people be able to see the holes in your mouth after getting teeth pulled?

Depending the area where you are having your teeth pulled people may only see a space but the actual "hole" where the tooth was pulled from heals over and is just like a regular gum area. Depending on WHERE they are pulled, no. The holes will close and your teeth will move up to fill those holes. If it is teeth in the back, they will eventually close. Usually they stitch the hols with dissolvable stitches.
