Teeth Update

About eating: Eating solid food is strange. My jaw doesn’t open very wide and my teeth feel numb (like after novacaine…except it has been 24 hours now). Maybe it’s back to less solid food and some jaw stretching exercises.

About brushing: I can’t say I brushed for long and I have no idea how thorough I was, but there was no bleeding afterward, so I must have stayed away from the extraction site!

About rinsing: The 1/3 hydrogen peroxide, 2/3 water mix didn’t taste as bad as I thought it would. Also, 1/3 cup is quite a bit to rinse with. At least I don’t have to feel bad about doing this after every meal.

About medication: 1 antibiotic (prevent infection) every 6 hours, 5 prednisone (swelling), vicoden as needed every 4-6 hours.
