Oral Health and Wellness in Oral Surgery Patients


Posted on 4/15/2024 by Weo Admin
Healthy food that Beaverton Oral Surgeons in Hillsboro, OR would approve ofUndergoing surgery in the mouth to address various conditions can temporarily impact oral hygiene routines and eating. However, maintaining healthy teeth and tissues expedites healing and improves outcomes. Oral surgeons care for your mouth before and after procedures.

Preparing for Surgery


Before surgery, it is important to thoroughly clean teeth and gums to minimize bacteria and lower the risk of post-operative infection. Additionally, inform your surgeon about any dental issues that require attention before the procedure. Addressing these concerns beforehand ensures that the focus during recovery can be solely on surgical healing.

After Surgery Care


Oral surgeons instruct patients on tooth brushing, eating, medication use, and more based on individual circumstances. On the first days after procedures, gentle saltwater rinses may be recommended over brushing surgery sites. Smoking or tobacco cessation supports faster healing. Consuming vitamin/nutrient-rich soft foods aids the mending processes. Antibiotics or other medications may be prescribed to prevent infections.

Long-term Oral Wellness


Patients play an active role in maintaining oral health after surgery. Regular dental cleanings and exams prevent minor issues from worsening. Consistent at-home care, including brushing, flossing, and rinsing, prevents problems between visits. Balanced nutrition, hydration, and a healthy lifestyle also contribute to overall wellness.

Watching for Complications


Post-operative issues can happen despite precautions. Inform your oral surgeon if you have increasing pain, swelling, or bleeding. Timely treatment adjustments for complications like delayed healing, infection, or nerve problems can improve outcomes. Openly communicate any concerns or questions during recovery.

Supporting Each Phase of Healing


The healing timeline varies widely depending on the specifics of oral surgery. However, it generally includes three phases: Inflammatory, Proliferative, and Remodeling. Each phase requires different support. Close post-operative communication ensures that patients know how to promote their health during each stage.

Partnering on Your Oral Health Journey


The combination of surgical interventions alongside daily self-care forms a foundation for lasting oral wellness. Continually optimizing health safeguards surgical successes into the future. Work together with our oral surgeon to map the path ahead.
