Pre-Operative Instructions

Extraction Post-Operative Instructions

When you have a tooth/teeth removed, you are leaving an open socket. In order for proper healing to occur, we recommend that you follow the post-operative instructions listed…

Post Operative Instructions for Immediate Denture(s)

If you have had one or more teeth removed to accommodate the placement of an immediate denture(s), you must leave the denture(s) in your mouth for 24 hours after they are inserted. The dentures will act as a bandage; they help limit bleeding and prevent breakdown of blood clots that form in the extraction sockets. Normally bleeding is minimal, however a few drops of blood may redden the saliva for a day or longer.

Post Operative Instructions for Dental Implants

To maximize healing, it is required that the following instructions be adhered to during the first two weeks following the placement of your dental implants.

Apply ice packs (cold) on and off (alternated) every 20 minutes for the first 24 hours following surgery to reduce swelling.
