Sedation After Care Instructions

January 28, 2023

Post-Operative Dental Surgery Instructions

  1. Things to expect following surgery:
  2. >Bleeding: Bleeding or oozing for the first 12-24 hours is common. Mild to moderate bruising/discoloration can also be present.
  3. >Swelling: Swelling may begin within the first 24 hours but should reach its maximum by 48-72hours. Swelling should diminish by the 5th day.
  4. >Discomfort: Discomfort may begin as early as when the anesthetic wears off. Typically discomfort will increase as swelling increases, with peak levels occurring within the first 48hours and gradually tapering thereafter.
  5. Things to do following surgery:
  6. >Refrain from: Smoking, vaping, vigorous swishing, and drinking through a straw for a minimum of the first 72 hours. Ideally to prevent infections and delays in the healing process, this should be avoided until the tissue completely heals up or your dentist advises you otherwise. Please also refrain from disturbing any stitches that were placed.
  7. >Bleeding:
  8. >>Bite on gauze for 30 min - 1 hour with constant, firm pressure over the surgical site. If bleeding continues, replace gauze and continue to apply pressure until bleeding stops.Some oozing and discoloration of saliva is normal, so place an old towel on your pillow before going to sleep the first night. Keep head elevated.
  9. >Swelling:
  10. >>Apply an ice pack to the outside of the face over the surgical area--20 minutes on, 20minutes off. Repeat for the first 24 hours following surgery as needed.
  11. >>After first day use warm, moist heat on face for swelling.
  12. >Discomfort:
  13. >>Take medications as directed for pain. See provided Pain Management sheet.
  14. >Diet:
  15. >>Avoid crunchy, crumbly, hot, or spicy foods for at least the first 72 hours following surgery or as directed by your dentist. Soup (room temperature or cold), oatmeal, milkshakes (without seeds), and mashed potatoes are all examples of acceptable soft foods. Do not skip meals as adequate nutrition is important for the healing process.
  16. >>Diet can be supplemented with high protein or meal replacement shakes such asEnsure or Boost. Protein is an essential nutrient in the recovery process.
  17. >Physical Activity:
  18. >>Avoid heavy lifting, sports, or strenuous exercises for the first 5-7 days or as directed by your dentist. Walking is a great way to maintain physical activity while healing.
  19. >Hygiene:
  20. >>Do not brush teeth in area of surgery for the first 48 hours. Other areas of the mouth may be brushed paying special attention to avoid area of surgery.
  21. >>Use warm salt water rinses (¼ teaspoon of salt to 1 cup of water) 3-5 times daily after meals for the first 2 days following surgery (very gentle swishing).
  22. >>If periodontal surgery was completed, including crown lengthening, do not brush the site for the first week. Use Peridex mouth rinse twice daily, swishing for 30 seconds and spitting.
  23. >Medication:
  24. >>Take all medications as instructed. If antibiotics were prescribed, be sure to take ALLas directed.
  25. Contact the office at (512) 717-5315 or seek emergency care if:

Post - OP Instructions: Root Canal

February 20, 2024

Post – Operative Instructions: Root Canal

By saving your tooth with root canal treatment, you have made a significant step towards better oral health. We have prepared this guide to answer any questions that you may have about the postoperative period and to give you information on how to preserve the health of your tooth following root canal treatment.

The irritated tissue and bacteria that caused you to need root canal treatment have been removed from your tooth following thorough cleaning of the root canal system. It is normal to feel some tenderness in the area over the next few days as your body undergoes the natural healing process. You may also feel some tenderness in your jaw from the local anesthetic and keeping it open for an extended period of time.

These symptoms are all normal, only temporary, and usually respond very well to over-the-counter pain medications. It is important that you follow the exact instructions on how to take these medications.

Your teeth may continue to feel slightly different from your other teeth for some time after your root canal treatment has been completed. However, contact the clinic immediately if you experience any of the following symptoms:

  • Severe pain or pressure lasting more than a few days
  • Visible swelling inside or outside your mouth
  • An allergic reaction to medication (rash, hives or itching)
  • Your bite feels uneven
  • The temporary crown or filling, if one was put in place, comes out (losing a thin layer is normal)


It is important to note that root canal treatment is only one step in returning your tooth to full function. A proper, full-coverage restoration such as a crown is essential in ensuring long-term success of the tooth. The final restoration should be started as soon as possible after completing root canal treatment.

As long as your endodontically treated tooth is restored properly it has the potential to last as long as your natural teeth. It is essential however that you practice good oral hygiene, to include regular brushing and flossing as well as routine checkups and cleanings. We will continue to monitor your tooth at subsequent checkups to monitor its healing. 

At times, the tooth may become painful or diseased months or even years after successful treatment. If this occurs, repeating the endodontic procedure at the specialist may be required to save the tooth.

Please contact your office if you have any questions or concerns

Should I Keep Flossing If My Gums Bleed?

Prevention
December 9, 2022

If your gums start bleeding while you’re flossing, should you keep flossing? Absolutely!

Bleeding while flossing is often a sign that you need to be flossing your gums more thoroughly or frequently—not that they should be left alone. It might sound counterintuitive, but the more you floss, the less your gums will bleed, unless the bleeding is related to physical damage to your gum tissue or a systemic issue. Many patients will stop flossing an area that bleeds, but the best thing to do is to give that area more attention!

Other Reasons Why Your Gums Might Bleed During Flossing

For most patients, simply flossing more often is enough to stop bleeding gums. However, there are several other reasons why your gums could bleed while flossing, including:

  • You could be using poor flossing techniques
  • You may not be brushing your gums properly while brushing your teeth
  • You may have an accumulation of plaque and tartar on your teeth
  • You may have had your teeth cleaned recently and had a lot of build-up removed
  • You may have gingivitis, the early stage of gum disease

If the bleeding hasn’t gone away within 3-10 days, schedule an appointment to have your dentist check it out. We’ll evaluate your flossing technique and determine whether you may need a cleaning or periodontal care. Gingivitis and gum disease are both very common, but the good news is that they can be reversed in the early stages.

How Often Should You Floss Your Teeth?

Flossing is very important because it can get into areas that your toothbrush bristles can’t. No matter how well you brush your teeth, if you’re not flossing, you’re essentially only cleaning about 50% of your mouth. If you only floss occasionally, your gums will probably bleed because the tissue isn’t used to the stimulation; regular flossing helps the gum tissue become more resilient.

Although some patients floss after every meal, simply flossing once a day will do wonders for your oral health! The best time to floss is typically before you brush your teeth at the end of the day. This will allow the fluoride to make the most contact with your teeth. If you have questions about how to floss your teeth properly, we’d be happy to give you a demonstration!

The bottom line: your gums may bleed from time to time, and generally, it’s not serious. Start flossing more often, and it should go away. But if your gums bleed regularly, it’s time to schedule an appointment with your dentist! Contact your closest Enamel location or book an appointment online.
