It is important to follow all post-surgical instructions for a smooth recovery. While every procedure will have similar instructions, there are differences, including what is normal for that procedure.

You will receive paperwork with post-surgery instructions for the procedure you have had. If necessary, you may also review the recovery instructions for wisdom teeth, dental implants, single tooth extractions, exposure of an impacted tooth, and multiple extractions on this website.

When you return home please review your surgical instructions thoroughly. You may also ask a caregiver to review the instructions with you as you recover from the effects of the anesthesia. Instructions will include what type of pain medication to take and how often, foods and drink suggestions and what is not allowed, instructions on cleaning your mouth, etc. 

Please contact our office if you are a recent patient and have questions after you have reviewed the surgical instructions for your dental surgery. If you have any questions or issues not addressed, please contact us. We strive to make your surgery recovery as smooth as possible.
