Posted on 11/22/2021 by Life Long Dental
What To Expect From Periodontist Surgery?Some bleeding is to be expected, however it will be adequately managed during the surgery.

Swelling: Swelling can be minimized by applying a cold pack to your face on the region of your mouth closest to the surgical area immediately after your operation and for the next 2-3 days.

Discomfort: Any oral surgical operation is likely to cause some discomfort.

Drugs: Antibiotics are frequently given by doctors to prevent infection, therefore it is important that you take the medications exactly as prescribed.
Numbness: During your operation, your doctor will most likely administer long-acting anesthesia.

Who would be an excellent candidate?

Periodontal surgery is typically recommended for those who have severe or persistent illnesses around the gums and the structures that sustain the teeth. Gum symptoms usually include swollen, red, or bleeding gums, deep pockets that form between your gums and teeth, loose teeth, discomfort while biting, poor breath, and gums that recede or peel away from your teeth's a good candidate.

What is the Periodontal Surgery Preparation?

Certain drugs, such as aspirin, pain relievers, and blood thinners, may need to be stopped a few weeks before your surgery. Most dentists recommend that you refrain from smoking or consuming alcohol for at least 1 day before the treatment. To reduce your chances of acquiring an infection, our doctor may prescribe a medication to take before your surgery. You should also make arrangements for someone to drive you home when the operation is completed. Your reaction times may be affected by the anesthetic, drowsiness, or other drugs you will take during the operation. That implies you might not be able to drive afterwards. Adhere to our clininician directions. If you are undergoing problems on surgery preparations, call us immediately.
