Following your visit to Ethos Dental, here are some actions you may want to do.

Avoid intense excersize for about 24 hours.

Keep your head elevated. This decreases the risk of bleeding.

Don’t place fingers, pencils or any other object in the mouth (to avoid injury or infection). (DUH!)

Dont bite on or chew your numb tongue or lips!

Avoid smoking or drinking alcohol as it delays healing. When eating, follow these tips:

Eat soft Foods such as softboiled eggs, finely chopped meat or cheese, custards, milk, soup or fruit juice.

Chew on the opposite side of your mouth to where the work was done.

Rinse your mouth gently after meals. Half a teaspoon of table salt in a glass of lukewarm water is an effective mouth rinse. What should I do if complications occur? The most common complications are pain, swelling, infection and bleeding.

Pain: Control moderate pain by taking paracetamol. Take this in the usual way and do not apply the drug to the wound itself. If the pain persists or worsens, return to the surgery where you were treated. In most cases, pain can be controlled quickly.
