• It not uncommon to have little or no bleeding or swelling, so you’re healing time is usually less than a week’s time.

• You may notice a dark discoloration immediately after the surgery.

• Avoid physical activity for several hours following surgery.

• Avoid eating spicy or excessively hot food.

• Avoid applying excessive tongue or cheek pressure to surgical area.

• Keep your mouth clean as possible in order to help the healing process. Rinse as direct with Peridex morning and night. Every 3 hour rinse gently with warm salt water (1/2 teaspoon of salt in 8 oz glass of water)

• Soft diet is recommended such as mash potatoes, eggs, yogurt, smoothies, and ice cream; bake fish, etc., until you can comfortably return to a normal diet.

• If you experience any discomfort, Tylenol, Motrin, or aspirin are very adequate in taking care of any pain.
