If a Tooth Gets Extracted, Consider Drinking Lots of Coconut Water After


Posted on 8/10/2017 by Brandon Cooley

Having a tooth extracted is traumatic to your mouth, no doubt about it. Part of the recovery process is going to be making sure that the area is protected and moisturized. You have the option of drinking water, but that is only going to provide a small amount of the benefits of coconut water.

If you have recently had an extraction, or are about to, then you need to stock up on coconut water as soon as you can. It will help you heal more quickly, and more thoroughly.

Benefits of Drinking Coconut Water Following an Extraction

Coconut water is full of electrolytes. It will help keep your mouth from getting dehydrated following an extraction, which is incredibly important. However, that is not all that coconut water is able to do. The biggest boost that you can get from drinking coconut water is that your body is able to regulate its glucose levels more thoroughly when you drink it.

Since following an extraction, your diet is going to be limited, your blood sugar is going to fluctuate a lot. This can even go up and down to the extremes, which can significantly slow down your healing progress.

If you drink something that can keep your blood sugar more stable, it can make it to where your body is more able to keep itself regulated, which allows it to send the right healing cells directly to the area of the extraction. Plus, you won't have the extra glucose ending up in your mouth, which can also slow healing.

Drinking coconut water ice cold allows you to have beneficial liquids in your mouth that can also keep swelling down. This gives your mouth the chance to heal without the damage caused by extra bleeding or swelling. Talk to your dentist about their thoughts on coconut water today!
