Post Operative Instructions

  1. Keep biting down firmly on the gauze swab which is in your mouth for the next 30 minutes.
  2. If bleeding continues, replace the gauze with a new one, or with a clean knotted hankerchief and bite down firmly.
  3. DO NOT SPIT OR RINSE! Wipe saliva away with a tissue or swallow.
  4. DO NOT SMOKE OR DRINK ALCOHOL FOR THE NEXT 24 HOURS.
  5. REST! Do not do any heavy lifting, bending or jumping.
  6. Before the injection starts to wear off (approx 3 hours) after you get home, take a mild to strong pain killer eg. Panadeine, Mersyndol or Neurofen. Take any prescribed antibiotics until finished.
  7. Sleep with your head slightly elevated with 2 pillows covered with a towel overnight. This will help avoid bleeding. Do not have anything too hot or cold to eat or drink before bed.
  8. The following day, rinse gently with warm salty water at least 3 times a day after meals. Continue this for a few days after meals.
  9. You will have slight soreness & maybe a little swelling, but if you have constant throbbing pain, ring us immediately.
  10. Apply an ice pack for 5 minutes, every half an hour for half a day.
