We hope that your experience in our care has been a pleasant one.
Following root-end surgery it’s important that you do not disturb the affected area with manipulation and touching the sutures (stitches) with your tongue. Sudden, aggressive movements and stretching of the lip (laughter) can loosen the sutures and promote some bleeding. Please favor the area for the following 48 hours. Follow the instructions on the medicine bottles and take your antibiotics on time and for the full course of the therapy. Applying ice compress for 24 hours following the surgery is essential to reduce post-operative swelling and expedite healing. Apply the ice pack gently to the cheek for ten minute periods (10 min. on, 10 min. off) for the day of the surgery until going to bed that night.
If surgery was performed in upper jaw and the sinus was involved, over the counter nasal sprays for a week is recommended.
Thank you for trusting us with your care and we look forward to serve you and your referrals in the future with their endodontic needs.
