Home Care Instructions

It is strongly recommended to avoid eating or drinking hot beverages while you are still numb. This may cause inadvertent damage to the gums, tongue, and/or lips.

There may be soreness in the affected area for 2 to 3 days after the procedure. Take Ibuprofen, 400 mg (or as directed), every six hours, until the discomfort subsides. If you are allergic to or cannot take Ibuprofen, you may take Extra Strength Tylenol, 500 mg, one tab every four hours. If you have any concerns, consult with our office.

You may brush your teeth, floss, and use mouth wash anytime after the procedure, unless informed otherwise during your visit.

If you experience any swelling, you can apply ice on and off, to the outside of the treated area, for up to 48 hours or until the swelling is under control. Also contact our office for further instructions as needed.

If there is significant pain on biting, that persists after a couple of days, contact our office as a bite adjustment may be needed in your treated tooth.

To allow for adequate recovery, avoid heavy use of the treated tooth for up to a week following your treatment.

Remember to make an appointment with your general dentist for placement of a final restoration on the tooth (no later than one month from the completion date).

You may experience increased swelling up to 72 hours after your procedure. In order to minimize the extent of swelling, it is highly recommended that you apply ice on and off, to the outside of the surgical area, for up to 48 hours after your surgery.

Brushing and flossing of the surgical quadrant should be avoided until after suture removal.

Rinse with lukewarm saltwater after each meal and avoid the use of mouthwash until after suture removal.

To prevent your sutures from coming out ahead of their intended time, avoid any unnecessary contact with the surgical area.

Take caution while biting or chewing around the surgical area until your sutures are removed.

Remember to make an appointment with us for your suture removal.
