Be on liquid diet for a week. Rinse your mouth with warm salt water after every 4 hours and can continue for a week. You can keep the wound clean by using mouthwash too. Avoid touching the wound with tongue or any other material so that the wound is not infected.... Hope this helps...

Hello Ankush, on the day of extraction you should avoid hot food shoulid have soft and cold diet. from next day of extraction you can start with your normal diet.smoking is avoided, drinking with a straw is avoided. The most important thing you have to do is warm saline gargles ( 2 to 3 times for 5 days ) to keep the extraction site clean.
Soft diet. And avoid very spicy food for next 2-3 days. Take the prescribed medicine regularly.
Do not rinse vigorously, suck on straws, smoke, drink alcohol or brush teeth next to the extraction site for 48 hours. If possible chew on the opposite side of your extraction site. Drink lots of liquids and eat soft,nutritious foods. Strictly avoid hard, hot food & drinks for first 24 hours. Avoid spicy food. Eat food like dalia, khichadi.
