Health Tip: After You Have a Tooth Pulled

(HealthDay News) -- You've just had a tooth pulled and are wondering what to do next.
Your dentist should provide a post-treatment regimen, but here are some pointers from the American Dental Association:
Some bleeding after the extraction is common. Don't aggravate the condition by smoking, rinsing your mouth vigorously, or drinking through a straw for 24 hours.
Instead, rinse your mouth gently, and if you experience pain or swelling, apply a cold cloth.
Your dentist should recommend whether and how often to take pain medication.
You can brush and floss your teeth, but be sure to avoid aggravating the area near the socket where the tooth was pulled.
