Second down... One more to go.

So, the second tooth from my lower jaw that was required to be extracted for my orthodontics under progression has been completed. This tooth was positioned symmetrically opposite to the first extraction from the lower jaw that happened about a week earlier.

Now, this blog post won't be complete without some "cute" photo shoots after the extraction of my second tooth. So here goes:

This extraction was also very easy and comfortable Alhamdulillah. My dentist has been really caring and very attentive to the whole case MashAllah. In the first extraction, the numbness of the anesthesia went off pretty easily. But in this extraction, the numbness of the anesthesia (a slight numbness) persisted for nearly 2 days.

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
