Following instructions post oral surgery is the best way to ensure proper healing and prevent complications. After a procedure the doctor or dental assistant will give you complete instructions on care that are specific to your procedure. Below are some common practices to guide your healing process.

- Always wait 2 hours after surgery before eating to let anesthesia wear off.
- Avoid hot and cold food or drink for the next few days.
- Warm salt water rinses can help alleviate pain and keep the area clean.
- If you can, take Advil or Tylenol for pain, if pain persists for 7 or more days contact our office at 317-789-1000.
