Post-Op Instructions

It is important to follow instructions after oral surgery to ensure proper healing and avoid complications. As a rule of thumb, you should always wait two hours after surgery before eating to let the anesthesia wear off. Trying to eat before could result in soft tissue damage because you are not able to feel all of your mouth. The instructions found below are the guidelines to follow. After your surgery, the doctor or dental assistant will give you full instructions on how to properly recover from surgery.
