POST-OP INSTRUCTIONS

POST-OPERATIVE INSTRUCTIONS

EXTRACTIONS

INSTRUCTIONS AFTER TOOTH EXTRACTION

Change the cotton roll with a new one every 30 minutes and until the bleeding stops completely. It will allow the formation of a blood clot that is essential to the healing process.

* If after 3 hours the bleeding hasn’t stopped, bite on a humid green tea bag instead of a cotton roll for 45 minutes. This will speed up the formation of a blood clot.

First 24 hours

Precautions must be taken in order to preserve the formation of the blood clot.

  • It is very important not to smoke.
  • Do not drink with a straw.
  • Do not spit or rinse rigorously.
  • Do not brush your teeth or floss on the first day.

Applying ice every few minutes can prevent swelling and pain. If you feel that the medication prescribed by your dentist or the medication you get at the pharmacy like Advil, Motrin or Tylenol (avoid Aspirin) does not help with your pain, give us a call.

It is strongly recommended to keep a diet of soft food, ideally warm. Something too hot may dissolve the blood clot.

After 24 hours

  • Continue eating soft food until you feel comfortable enough to add something more consistent with your meals.
  • Start rinsing after every meal with warm salt water (1 teaspoon in a cup of warm water) or the prescribed mouthwash for 7 days.
  • Start brushing your teeth gently with a very soft toothbrush and floss. Good hygiene is essential to the healing process.

If you were prescribed antibiotics after a tooth extraction or a surgery, it is very important to start taking them on the same day and finish the treatment until the very end.

TOOTH BLEACHING

INSTRUCTIONS FOR TOOTH BLEACHING

Follow the instructions below for the complete duration of the treatment, approximately 2 weeks.

Daily procedure

  1. Brush your teeth without toothpaste, only water, and floss.
  1. Delicately place whitening gel inside the tray along every tooth you wish to whiten. The size of a rice grain is plenty enough.
  1. Dry your teeth with a tissue and place the tray with the gel on your upper or lower teeth.
  1. Once the tray is in place, make sure that the gel covers the complete surface of the teeth. Be careful not to push all of the whitening gel outside of the tray and on your gums. You can remove the excess gel with a tissue or a dry toothbrush.
  1. Keep the trays on for 1 or 2 hours.
  1. After 2 hours, you can remove the trays and rinse your mouth thoroughly with water. Do not brush your teeth right away, it might be sensitive. Rinse the trays with warm water. You can use a toothbrush to remove the excess gel in the tray. Place them in their box in a dry environment and keep them away from pets, for they might be attracted by the smell.

 

Precautions

Avoid food that can stain your teeth for the complete duration of the treatment and 2 additional weeks (1 month in total). Ex: coffee, red wine, curry, tomato sauce, tea.

Do not eat or drink while wearing your trays.

Do not smoke for the complete duration of the treatment (2 weeks).

 

General Information

Keep the unused whitening gel syringes in the refrigerator for subsequent use.

Keep a good oral hygiene for the complete duration of the treatment.

The treatment must be continuous. If you miss 1 or 2 days, the treatment will have to be prolonged in order to obtain the desired results.

It is normal to see dark spots in the trays in the areas where you have grey fillings.

It is normal to notice white stains on your teeth when you remove your whitening trays. They will fade away within minutes.

Some patients will experience uncomfortable teeth sensitivity to hot or cold during and after the treatment. Some can have a non-specific reaction to teeth, gums, lips or throat. If one of these symptoms appears and is unbearable, please stop the treatment and contact us.

Keep your trays after the treatment; you might want to do a touch up later on. If you do feel the need for a touch up a few months/years after your first treatment, whitening syringes are available at our clinic.

ORTHODONTICS

ORAL HYGIENE DURING AN ORTHODONTIC TREATMENT

 

It is essential to have an excellent oral hygiene during an orthodontic treatment. The technique for brushing and flossing is not the same as usual since there is a whole orthodontic appliance to clean in addition to your teeth! Here are a few instructions for an adapted technique that will ensure a healthy smile.

Brushing and Flossing technique

Place the toothbrush on top of the brackets and move it horizontally. To remove dental plaque successfully, you must do it on every bracket in your mouth. Notice how the brush is angled in order to clean the top of the square-shaped bracket.

Place the toothbrush under the brackets and move it horizontally. To remove dental plaque successfully, you must do it on every bracket in your mouth. Notice how the brush is angled in order to clean under the square-shaped bracket.

Place the toothbrush in front of the brackets and move it in a circular motion. To remove dental plaque successfully, you must do it on every bracket in your mouth. Notice how the brush is angled in order to clean the front of the square shaped bracket.

With an interdental brush, you must brush in between each bracket since the normal toothbrush cannot clean this area properly. This allows you to clean both sides of the square shaped brackets, thus completing a perfect brushing.

The usual flossing technique will not work with an orthodontic appliance since the metallic arc stops the floss from going all the way in between the teeth.

Use a floss threader in order to place the floss under the metallic arc, allowing it to remove dental plaque under the gum.

Notice how the floss can clean a few millimeters under the gum when placed under the metallic arc.

In the first few days after getting your braces, your cheeks may be sensitive to the friction they cause in your mouth and eventually develop ulcers. You can place some orthodontic wax on the brackets during the day or night to protect your cheeks and lips, who will soon get used to your braces.

Excellent oral hygiene is essential for the success of an orthodontic treatment. Healthy gums will react faster to the movements generated by the brackets. Prolonged accumulation of dental plaque and food around the brackets will cause permanent white and brown staining on your teeth after the treatment. Staining can be avoided with a daily healthy routine, brushing twice and flossing once, as demonstrated above.

Avoid eating:

  • Anything very sticky (caramel, taffy, candy);
  • Chewing gum;
  • Apples (an apple cut in pieces will not damage the brackets);
  • Carrots (carrots cut in pieces will not damage the brackets);
  • Excessive consumption of sweets.
