How Should I Take Care of My Teeth and Mouth After Oral Surgery?

Your dentist provides personalized aftercare instructions before releasing you to recover at home. They might prescribe a pain reliever or antibiotics to aid your recovery.

Depending on the type of oral surgery, you might need to consume only liquids and soft foods for a few days after your operation. Additionally, you will need to take care not to dislodge any clots that form following a tooth extraction.

In most cases, you can return to brushing and flossing your teeth after 24 hours. You will need to be gentle, especially around any incision sites.
