After Scaling & Root Planing
Avoid hard or chewy foods for two to three days after surgery.
Rinse your mouth with warm salt water (1 teaspoon of salt in 8 ounces of water) two to three times a day. This will relieve the soreness and cleanse the area.
You should resume brushing and flossing right after the procedure, but brush gently so you don’t further irritate the area.
If you experience swelling or stiffness in the area, place a cold compress on it and take Advil or Tylenol to alleviate the pain.
If pain or swelling continues beyond a few days, give us a call.
