Keep your healing socket clean by properly gargeling after every meal. Food lodgement may cause bad breath n if you smoke then smoking as it may lead to delay healing and dry socket.

Some people feel feverish after wisdom tooth removal till the socket heals. Take care to keep that area clean from food particles so as to avoid bad breath n infection. Gargle well after each meal. Use bethadine mouthwash thrice daily.
