Re: [IP] tooth extraction- HELP



I have been rinsing with warm salt water every hour as well as with amosan.
It says it helps pormotes healing in extracted teeth.  The tooth came out in
one piece, i have the tooth as a souvenir.  She did scrape the hole where
the tooth was pulled to make sure that there was nothing left inside.  I
have a follow up appt. on thursday.
