Post-surgical instructions

Carefully read the post-surgical instructions for better results and avvoid unexpected problems.

Wound care

  • We do not advise to eat with the part of the mouth which was operated.
  • After the operation it is necessary to rinse the mouth with water and salt,at least 4 days, then continue with the chlorhexidine mouthwash (Corsodyl, Curasept or Dentosan) 3 times a day holding it for 2 minutes in the area of the wound , for about 2 weeks. Mouthwash should not be swallowed. The rest of the areas of the oral cavity can be brushed regularly.
  • It is not recommended to use the straw for a few days after surgery.
  • The treated part of the mouth must always be cleaned with a soft brush (starting from the second day after surgery). It is important that the gingiva and the threads around the wound are clean. The points disappear in one or two weeks after (time depends on wound healing).
  • Smoking is forbidden.

Pain

  • The presence of slight pain after surgery is normal. It is important to use only the prescribed painkillers.
  • The use of drugs that enhance bleeding such as aspirin should be avoided.

Swelling

  • After surgery, the swelling looks like the bruises under the eyes. The application of ice bags on the external parts of the face treated surgically for the first 5 hours after surgery is highly recommended.
  • The swelling can last for a few weeks.

Bleeding

  • A slight bleeding is normal after surgery.
  • If the patient bleeds too much, a slight pressure with a compress (or tea bag) on treated area for 10 min should help.
  • Healing will be better and faster if the patient drinks a lot of fluid and has a mainly protein diet.

Food
