Gingival Graft

Post-operative instructions

The surgical procedure we have just completed does not implicate any severe traumatism. In order to minimize any discomfort during the phase of recovery here are some recommendations to follow;

  • Soft diet.
  • Rinse with water and Listerine half and half after a 24 hour period post-op of the
    surgery. Rinse once at night and once in the morning.
  • Please rinse delicately, do not rinse excessively.
  • No cardio exercise for the week.
  • Take two Advil 200mg if needed.
  • Do not brush or floss around the graft during the week.
  • You must see your dentist in 10 days for the suture removal.

Most common complications :

  • Possibility of a hematoma (a localized swelling filled with blood resulting from a break in a blood vessel).
  • If ever your palate starts bleeding, apply a damp tea bag with pressure for about ten minutes.

If you have any questions or any unusual problem, please do not hesitate to call us, it will be our pleasure to help you.
