Dr. Patrick Morrissey will provide you with surgical instructions to help you recover following your treatment for impacted teeth in Lake Oswego, Oregon. If you have any questions or would like to make a follow-up appointment with our experienced dentist, please contact Boones Ferry Dental at 503-699-6699.
You may experience some mild discomfort and swelling following your treatment. We recommend using cold compresses to alleviate this discomfort and swelling. Dr. Morrissey may also prescribe medication to manage pain. Please take this medication or any over-the-counter medications you elect to use as directed.
We also advise you to favor the extraction area for several days following treatment — do not touch it or brush and floss in the area. Instead, rinse with warm saltwater mixes. Maintain a “soft” diet for several days to give yourself time to recover. You may resume normal brushing, flossing and dietary habits after a few days.
If you experience severe bleeding or pain, please contact our office immediately.
