On the day of your surgery, it’s crucial to rest and limit your activities. It generally takes several days or longer for your gums to heal completely. Your doctor will provide you with specific instructions to assist you with the recovery process.
Follow your doctor’s advice on when and how to brush your teeth while still recovering from the surgery. Also, you may ease pain by taking pain medications as directed by your doctor. During the first few days following the procedure, it’s best to stick to soft foods, such as yogurt, eggs, and pasta. Steer clear of spicy foods and avoid anything with seeds until your gums have finally healed.
If you notice excessive bleeding or swelling, or any concerns after your surgery, contact your doctor immediately.
