How can I make my mouth heal faster after oral surgery?

Oral surgery can be a very “heavy” procedure so post operative care is very important in making sure you recover well and fast. Here are some of our tips on postoperative recovery:

1. Rest
We know it sounds simple but it really is one of the most keys to success for oral surgery. Keep your head propped upwards to reduce inflammation.

2. Liquid Diet
The same diet we hear of, the liquid cleanse, may actually be the best diet for post Maxillofacial surgery care.

3. Ice
Keep that face iced on and off to increase the speed of your recovery, usually in 15 minute increments.

4. Antibiotics
As prescribed by your surgeon, take the dosage to ease the swelling and pain. Keep Clean- Use warm, clean and salty water to keep your face clean.
