Allograft Gum Surgery Recovery

Allograft Gum Surgery RecoveryAfter the completion of allograft gum surgery, patients may be able to return home immediately following the procedure. However, if sedative was used to help the patient relax during the surgery, arrangements for ride should be made prior to surgery.

Specific instructions will be provided by our periodontist regarding post-operative care. Patients are recommended to adhere to a soft foods diet by consuming eggs, pasta, vegetables, and other foods that are soft in texture. Physical activity should be kept to a bare minimum since strenuous exercise may dislodge the blood clot. Flossing and brushing the surgical site must be avoided until the area has completely healed. Patients will be asked to rinse with a special formulated mouth wash in order to help control the formation of plaque during the process of healing. Antibiotics may be prescribed in order to help prevent the onset of infection.

In order to control any possible discomfort, our dentist will prescribe pain medication for patients. It may take approximately a week or two to completely heal, however, most patients are able to return to their normal routine immediately following allograft gum surgery. Be sure to follow these simple steps to ensure that you are well on your way to allograft gum surgery recovery.
