After receiving your new smile, make sure you take care of it by following these simple directions:

  • At first, your bite might be different and seem akward, however you should adjust to this in a short time.
  • If an anesthetic was used to perform your procedure, try not to chew any food or gum until the numbness has ended.
  • Be careful not to eat foods that are very hard or could chip your new smile (i.e., biting hard candies).
  • Moderate or eliminate items that stain teeth like dark juices, tobacco, wine or coffee.
  • Your brushing and flossing routine should be as usual.
  • Take your medications or antibiotics (if prescribed) as stated.
  • Rinse your mouth with salt water 3 times a day to reduce swelling.

You will most likely have discomfort for a few days after your procedure, however if any items come off or your sensitivity/pain increases, please call our office with your concerns.
