Hi,

I have had four front teeth extracted this morning but I am confusing when to start a saltwater gargle. The paperwork I was given says the following day but my dentist told me today. I had top teeth removed a couple of years ago now and I can't remember what I done then - any advice would be fab, thank you !

Hi @MelJJ, our page on healing after extractions also says after 24 hours:


However, if your dentist reckons that you should start today, then I suppose they reckon it would be safe for you to do so? Can you try emailing them (if they gave you their email address)?
