Guidance and Instructions after Dental Surgery

After a surgery operation in the oral cavity the patient has to observe certain rules so as to speed up the healing process and avoid possible complications.

  • On the day of the operation do not rinse your mouth with anything. Saliva and blood should be spit out only.
  • After the operation start to cool your face externally as soon as possible. Ice should be applied onto your face covered in a piece of tissue only, never directly on the skin. Intervals of cooling: 10-15 min cooling, 10-15 min relaxation. Keep on cooling for 3 days.
  • Observe dental hygiene rules (brush your teeth at least twice a day)
  • Use pain killers if necessary (brands in the Czech Republic: Ibalgin, Paralen, Baletil, Ketonal)
  • If the doctor prescribes antibiotics, you should use up the whole pack. Follow the dosage prescribed by the doctor.
  • The swelling may increase during the first three days.
  • Eat soupy, mushy food, non-irritating food.
  • The next day after the operation start to rinse your mouth with chamomile or sage infusion to speed up the healing process.
  • If you feel unwell, go to see the doctor even before the appointment stipulated by the doctor.
