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.

Due to local anesthetic, it can be difficult to smile, talk, or even open and close one's mouth following wisdom tooth extraction.

Why are the wisdom teeth not needeed?

Earlier, when people were eating more coarse foods teeth regularly wore out and fell out. Getting an extra pair could then come in real handy.

And if you already have all your teeth, then you don't really need the wisdom teeth, and they can actually cause trouble when they try to crowd into your mouth.

Why do you have to have our wisdom teeth pulled?

Many people simply don't have enough room in their mouth to accomodate the wisdom teeth. If they were to grow in, they would push and cramp the other teeth, causing pain and crooked teeth. There can be a variety of reasons why we have to have them pulled. My wife is actually going to have hers cut out soon is the only reason I know any of this. Some of the most common reasons are: Not enough room in your mouth to support 4 more teeth. They don't come all the way through the gumline and stay "impacted," cause jaw pain because this can throw your "bite" off As is my wife's case, the can come in on an angle, rather and straight up and down. This causes you to not be able to brush them well and you get a cavity in one or more of them. The amazing thing about this is (and I did not know this) cavities are contagious. If you get a cavity in your wisdom tooth, and you don't have it taken care of, it wil pass the cavity along to the molar it is next to. They can come in off center, which is what happened to me, meaning that every time you close your mouth, your teeth don't line up properly and you can't close your mouth all the way. Mine came in a little too far on the outside of my gums and caused me to almost chew a hole through my right cheek. There are some other reasons as well, but these are pretty common ones.

Should you be able to open your jaw very wide after wisdom teeth removal If you can't open your teeth more than an inch 3 days after removal is this normal?

From my experience with wisdom teeth removal, yes, it is very normal. I can't even tell you how long it was before I was able to open my jaw wide like before. Not only do the stitches in your mouth keep the skin very tight, you're also going to have a stiff jaw from having your mouth open through the surgery! It is normal to have decreased function of your mouth for a while after surgery. But definitely talk to your dentist if you think something is really not normal.

Is it normal to not be able to open your mouth wide after wisdom tooth surgery?

How soon can you smoke marijuana after having wisdom teeth removed?

Give it a few days, maybe even a week or two at the least. I smoked the day after my teeth were pulled and it breaks up the clots in the holes, which led to dry socket (which is a lot worse than it sounds, imagine not being able to open your mouth wider than a centimeter for about three weeks) and infection in multiple sockets. Definitely not worth it, just cold water extract your vicodin out of the pain pills they give you and relax.

I have to get my tooth pulled out but not my wisdom teeth it's a perminent tooth stuck in my gum would they put me to sleep?

It is not necessary to be asleep even for your wisdom teeth extractions, but if you're asking if they will because you WANT to be asleep then you simply have to ask your dentist. You should be able to find a dentist around you that is offering sleep dentistry, though it really is unnecessary and will be much more costly. It probably would not take more than 5 minutes if it isn't a molar.
