Your recovery period after your procedure is critical to the overall success of your surgery. It’s important that you keep the surgical site undisturbed, especially if a blood clot needs to form. Most discomfort can be alleviated with cold and hot compresses and over-the-counter pain medication. We encourage you to relax for the first few days after surgery, drink the recommended amount of water, and eat nutritionally to help jumpstart your recovery. We’ll review your post-operative instructions during your visit at Golden Oak Dental & Implant Center in Cookeville, TN to make sure you’re comfortable with the healing process before treatment begins.
