Post Op Surgery Instruction

Follow these instructions for fast and uncomplicated healing following Oral Surgery

Bleeding: Continue to bite on gauze for 1 hour. ONLY if there is active bleeding do you need to replace gauze. Use gauze that was provided to you, dampen prior to placing over extraction area and hold for 30 min. If you are still actively bleeding place a damp tea bag over area and hold for 30 min. If this has not stopped your bleeding please call our office or seek medical attention.

Do Not: Rinse or spit for the rest of today. You could dislodge blood clot and cause bone pain known as Dry Socket.

Do Not: Drink from a straw, drink from squeeze bottles, drink carbonated drink, or smoke for 72 hours. This may also dislodge blood clot and cause dry socket.

Do Not: Brush your teeth tonight. You may brush next morning. Stay away from extraction site and do not rinse or spit vigorously for 1 week to avoid dry socket. Starting tomorrow you will also start rinsing with warm salt water after every meal to keep area clean. 8 oz warm water mixed with 1 tsp salt.

Do Not: Play with area with tongue, food, or other objects as this could cause improper healing. Eating: Stay away from hot foods and drinks, this will cause irritation and may dissolve blood clot, for at least 2 days. Advance your diet gradually. No seeds, hard foods, or spicy food for 1 week.

If you were given any RX please take them as instructed by Dr.
