    Your Dentist does not want you to be rude because you are not a hockey player.


    Seriously...It most likely is. so that you don't put strain on the exposed area.

    jhharlan is quietly brilliant!

    Because when a tooth is pulled  the root is pulled out of the bone in your jaw and so there is a hole there now exposing the bone, nerves and blood vessels, so your body creates a blood clot there to protect it while healing. Spitting causes suction on the socket and blood clot and can dislodge it then causing an extremely painful condition called "dry socket".  The raw bone and nerves are then exposed to air, food and what ever else, causing intense pain and sometimes infection.  That's why!! So don't spit and get  better quickly!!  :-]

    Really, Tommyh?? Guess it's good that I didn't go into details about the infection itself, then, right? LOL

    spitting causes suction- that's right.And that process causes more blood to come out and you really don't want that. so don't spit as long as u can.

    He wants to keep a tidy office.

    Whatever you do, don't rinse or that will provoke bleeding. You will need to spit out blood in your mouth, but do it gently.

    my dentist told me to put wet tea bags on mine. it supposed to help slow the bleeding. but i do have a bleeding disorder. may be that why he said do that
