The first and foremost advise will be to follow the instructions given to you following any extraction or any surgical procedure.
The main instructions include no rinsing, no forcibly spitting or gargling, the reason being this will dislodge the clot from the extraction site.
Another important instruction is to avoid using straw for drinking beverages. Straw usually creates a vacuum in your mouth. So this will forcibly dislodge the clot from the extraction site.
You are usually not advised to smoke for one week or if possible after 10 days after the procedure as nicotine will produce high amount of heat in the oral cavity. This will dry the blood clot.
