What can I expect after oral surgery?
This really depends on which procedure you had, but generally, you can expect some discomfort and pain, as well as some swelling. However, this can be mitigated with medication and various therapies, like icing the area. You might also be drowsy if you received a sedative, but this will wear off quickly.
It’s a good idea to take the rest of the day off after oral surgery, and you might need additional time off depending on the type of surgery you received. You should spend this time resting and avoiding strenuous activities. You should also avoid driving during this time.
Right after your surgery, the dentist will give you some instructions for care, so it’s important that you follow these instructions. You’ll want to tend to the treated area to make sure any bleeding and swelling are under control, and to ensure the area is clotting and healing properly. For at least 3 days, you’ll also want to avoid certain beverages and some foods, as well as any smoking. The doctor will specify what these are. Finally, you’ll want to go to your post-surgery follow-up appointments with the doctor.
How long does oral surgery take to heal?
This definitely depends on the type of surgery you had. A simple wisdom tooth removal will heal up in a week or two, whereas more complicated surgeries can take months to heal. You’ll need to have a proper consultation with a professional who can answer all of your questions and help you come up with a post-surgery healing plan!
