Wisdom Tooth Removal? Elevated Head Helps Healing

Has your dentist recently removed one or more wisdom teeth? While this is a very common procedure, you might experience a certain amount of swelling as your mouth heals. Why should your head remain elevated and how can this help to increase your comfort?

– An elevated head will aid in drainage after the surgery.
– It also helps to increase the blood flow to aid healing.
– As the swelling recedes, any levels of perceived pain will likewise lessen.

“Getting your wisdom teeth removed is a very common procedure that the majority of people have done.”
