Providing the best in family dentistry is our number one mission here at 7 Day Dental. Beyond making it extremely easy for you to get an appointment using our online portal, we accept many different insurance plans. We’ve even put all our patient forms online so it’s easy for you to get ready for that all-important first appointment.

Those are just some of the ways that we make dental care a convenient and easy experience. Of course we also offer a variety of professional dental services including Laguna Woods oral surgery. Whether it’s decided you need a frenectomy, a hemisection or one of the other surgical procedures we offer, we want to help you get through the surgery with all the information that you’ll need to make a complete and thorough recovery.


 Here’s just some of the postoperative advice that we can give you

  • Laguna Woods Oral SurgeryKeep the gauze in place for at least a half hour after the procedure. You might be tempted because of the sensation of something foreign in your mouth, but don’t chew on the gauze or suck on it. Both are natural reactions you’ll need to resist so the healing process can start.
  • In fact, there’s no need to touch the area that’s been worked on at all. Try not to rinse too much and leave the area alone to heal.
  • You might want to have a nap after you get home when your surgery is done. While that’s only normal and should be expected, we’d like to suggest that you sleep with your head elevated to reduce swelling.
  • Some mild pain medication might be necessary for a short time. Please only take what’s been prescribed and only in the recommended doses.


Because our oral surgery in Laguna Woods is a procedure that usually involves sutures, we’d also like to suggest you avoid hot liquids like coffee or tea right after the operation and it’s best if you don’t strain yourself physically right after any oral surgery.

Our highly skilled oral surgery team and clinic is equipped with all of the state-of-the-art technology.
