Follow surgeons instructions
If only one , maybe
If entire mouth definition not recommended
Yes and that’s recommended but only gentle rinsing will do. Too aggressively and you could lose the blood clot leading to a dry socket that can be very painful. This tends to happen more often on the lower than the upper due to less blood flow in the lower jaw.
Yes.
