To limit bleeding after oral surgery, Dr. Shoker may place a gauze pack on the wisdom tooth extraction site. This should be left in place for 30 to 45 minutes after leaving the office. Bite down on the gauze, but don't "chew" on it. Bleeding might continue after the pack is removed. If it does, we recommend you follow these instructions:

After oral surgery, Dr. Shoker suggests you protect the surgical area. A blood clot should form in the wisdom tooth extraction site; this needs to be protected for proper healing. Healing is a delicate process and requires the restriction of certain activities; otherwise the blood clot can be dislodged.
Oral Surgery Care And Things You Must Avoid:
For more information on care for clots and post-surgical care, contact Shoker Dental Inc. in Milpitas at (510) 713-7333 today.
Your mouth should be gently rinsed (not vigorously) with warm salt water the day after oral surgery. Add ½ teaspoon salt to one-cup warm water. Be sure to rinse after eating to keep food particles out of the extraction site.
Brush your teeth twice daily with a soft-bristled toothbrush. Brushing your tongue is also advised to eliminate bad breath and the unpleasant taste that often accompanies oral surgery. Floss at least once a day, too.
Be sure to follow the post-operative instruction you're given at Shoker Dental Inc. and call our Milpitas office immediately at (510) 713-7333 if:
We may give you a plastic ice pack to apply to your face on the way home. A cold compress helps reduce swelling. Apply either a cold compress or a cold, moist cloth periodically. Switch to moist heat (a warm wash cloth) 24 hours after oral surgery. Check with me regarding how often and how long to use a compress.
I may prescribe medication to prevent infection and control pain. Carefully follow the instructions. If you experience severe pain, swelling, bleeding, fever, nausea or vomiting, contact Shoker Dental Inc. at (510) 713-7333 for advice and assistance.
