After Care

Following your dental procedure:

·         Focus on a soft food diet immediately following your procedure.  Thereafter, solid foods can be reintroduced to your diet as you find it comfortable to do so. (Some procedures may require you to stay on a soft diet for a specific length of time.)

·         Do not drink through a straw for 72 hours after your procedure.

·         Facial swelling can occur up to 72 hours after your procedure and it will peak on the third day. Cold packs on the outside of the face or ice chips dissolved in the mouth will help control any swelling. After the first day, any swelling is best treated by the application of hot compresses on the outside of the face.

·         A small amount of bleeding may occur for several days after your procedure. You may use moist gauze (tap water is ok) to control any small amounts of bleeding. Apply direct pressure to the area with moist gauze. 

·         If you were given mouth rinse, use it as directed. Rinsing twice a day (morning and night) after you brush your teeth. The rinse may leave a slight stain on your teeth. This is temporary and can be polished off at your next routine cleaning.
