|umm, those steel things at the ends are the molar bands which were setup on my last visit to the dentist|
However, bleeding was quite a lot. I could not feel my mouth from the bottom left side because of the anesthetics used. Several cotton rolls were kept in that side to help the blood clot quickly.
To quicken up the healing process, like the previous time, I was suggested to:
- eat soft food for the first few days to go easy on the wound
- eat cold ice cream to heal the wound quickly
- rinse my mouth with lukewarm salt water regularly from the following day to prevent any infection from developing around the wound
