Reduce Swelling After Wisdom Tooth Removal
As well as pain after wisdom teeth removal, there will be swelling. Follow the recovery advice given by your dentist, as well as these tips:
- Keep your head up and elevated (propped by a cushion) as this will encourage good blood flow
- Apply a hot or cold compress to the area for 20 minutes
- Soften chamomile tea bags as if you were making tea then chew gently on the tea bags
- Rinse with salted water.
"For many patients, the swelling will begin to decrease after the first few days—in the meantime, try these remedies to decrease swelling and feel better faster!"
