After Gum Graft Surgery

If you are scheduled for a gum graft, you should know that there are certain do’s and dont’s that can help with the recovery process.

Key takeaways:

– Do keep the area clean and prevent plaque build-up by using a mouthwash.

– Don’t eat anything hard, as this can interfere with healing.

– Don’t brush your teeth or floss the treated area until your dentist says it’s safe to do so.

Your dentist or periodontist will discuss the best aftercare routine with you prior to the actual procedure.
