Pineapple Juice Before My Wisdom Teeth Extraction?

Zulay from New Stuyahok Alaska sent us the following question. Should I drink pineapple juice before my wisdom teeth extraction? Raw pineapple juice contains the proteolytic enzyme bromelain, which is often used in medicine to reduce swelling. Supposedly if you drink a large volume of raw pineapple juice in the run up to getting your wisdom teeth pulled, it will dramatically reduce the swelling caused by the extraction. I know many people who have tried this, and they will all stand by the fact that it worked. Despite it's apparent success rate, you should always consult with your dentist or a doctor to make sure it will not cause any complications in your own personal case. We appreciate Zulay sending us this question, and hope that our answer is sufficient. Please don't forget to bookmark our website, as we have tons of other recipes and articles to browse through.
