They call it oral surgery for a good reason and that’s because it involves cutting into and possibly even removing tissue from your mouth. We have oral and maxillofacial surgeons on staff that work diligently to make sure your oral health is preserved and your smile recovers to be better than it was before.

Our dentists might prescribe pain medication to get you over a short recovery and it’s important you take the medication exactly as prescribed. Here’s a few things that we want you to make sure you don’t do:

  • Take more than prescribed. Your dental health is important to us and that’s why we also like to advise you don’t drink alcohol when taking any kind of pain medication.
  • It’s also a good idea not to drive or use any heavy machinery if you feel drowsy after taking what we prescribed for your postoperative oral surgery in Anaheim recovery.

Keep in mind there will be some bleeding right after your procedure and that’s to be expected. There is no need to panic if you notice some blood in the first 24 hours because blood and saliva mix together and quite often make the situation look more severe than it actually is.

However, if you can’t control the bleeding several hours after your surgery by firmly pressing gauze on the area, we’d be only too happy to have a look here at 7 Day Dental.

Our procedures here are thorough and complete and begin with a consultation so you’ll stay informed right from the beginning about this process that can correct bite problems and shifting caused by missing teeth.

This kind of surgery, like everything else we do here at 7 Day Dental, is geared towards helping you keep your teeth for a lifetime.
