Had top molar extraction and guided bone regeneration a week ago. I was incredibly anxious beforehand but private implant dentist was brilliant. Tooth was fractured and got infected during covid So it had to come out. Quite a story to share there and will another day. I have had a week of recovery that has gone well, it’s day 9 after procedure and tonight went to brush rest of my mouth and do my rinse as I normally do and I don’t know how this happened but I totally forgot I’m not supposed to brush the extraction site. It was all sutured up with dissolvable stitches and a membrane, I realised almost immediately and stopped so it was only a tiny brush but now I’m panicking I’ve ruined everything and full of anxiety. Seeing consultant in 2 days to check on it and just so worried about it. I’ve had no bleeding infection or issues and until tonight I haven’t even touched it with my tongue. I’ve had a quick look and looks ok there is one suture hanging down but it was like that 2 days ok. Have I ruined it or will it be ok? Help can’t sleep fir worrying.
