Keep your mouth as clean as possible by brushing 2x a day and flossing, and/or using any other aids that have been recommended to allow for proper healing. Chlorhexidine mouth rinse is used best for 2 weeks, 2x a day after you have throughly cleaned your mouth. Swish a half capful for 30 secs., expectorate- do not rinse out. For 3 days avoid nuts, seeds, or popcorn- and may need to eat soft foods until tenderness goes away.Avoid Smoking - smoking will significantly reduce healing. Gum tissue may be tender for up to 7 days. Use ibuprofen or acetaminophen as needed. Bleeding and swelling with diminish with proper care of gums.If cold sensitivity is experienced then use a sensitive toothpaste like Sensodyne -without a whitening agent.
