After your procedure, there will be a recovery period. You can promote healing by avoiding hard foods. Opt for soft foods such as eggs, pasta, ice cream, cheese and yogurt. Do not smoke or engage in strenuous exercise. If your dentist prescribed antibiotics, be sure to take them as instructed to avoid infection. Avoid brushing and flossing around the affected gums, but do use mouthwash to keep plaque under control.
After your procedure, we will schedule your follow-up appointment. At this visit, you will see Dr. Alan Jureidini, who will ensure that everything is healing properly, and that your body has accepted the graft. If there are any complications, we can discuss additional treatments and establish a personalized treatment plan that will bring maximum results.
