Important Tips For Recovery From Gum Grafting Surgery

Posted on 2/6/2023 by Evan
Important Tips For Recovery From Gum Grafting SurgeryIt is necessary for your entire dental and oral health that your gums be in good and healthy shape. Gum grafting surgery may be required to heal your gums if you have a receding gumline due to periodontal disease, heredity, getting older, or cleaning your teeth incorrectly. Suppose you decide to have this treatment done. In that case, it is essential to know some helpful suggestions for healing following the operation.

After gum grafting surgery, you must remain silent for the first two to three days after the procedure. Talking generates movement and stretching in your mouth, which may cause the gauze to dislodge or even reposition. You should only talk when absolutely required.

The discomfort and swelling linked with your operation may be made more manageable with ice packs and over-the-counter pain medicines. It is in your best interest to consult with your oral surgeon on the drugs that, considering your general health, are the most suitable for you to consume or use. Keep cold packs in your mouth for twenty minutes in the first twenty-four hours following your operation.

Plenty Of Rest Is Essential

Following oral surgery, it is strongly suggested that you take it easy for the first three days after the procedure. To help with your recuperation, you should refrain from making any arrangements, take some time off, and just relax. Even if you decide to engage in any mild activities during this time, you should wait at least 24 hours before doing so.
