    After wisdom teeth removal, our dentists in Richmond, NSW will give you care instructions pertaining to your particular situation. Be aware that you may experience slight bleeding and swelling, although not always. You’ll be asked to bite down on a piece of gauze for around 45 minutes after your wisdom teeth removal to allow a blood clot to form. This aids the healing process and protects the site. Painkillers or antibiotics may also be prescribed. In any case needing after hours care, we recommend you seek emergency advice from Hawkesbury or Nepean Hospital.
