Home Care Instructions
After any dental treatment it is important you follow all post operative instructions given to you by our dental team. Following these instructions will ensure proper healing and longevity of your dental treatment.
When an anesthetic has been used, your lips and tongue may be numb for several hours after the appointment. Avoid any chewing and hot beverages until the numbness has completely worn off. It is very easy to bite or burn your tongue or lip while you are numb.
Injection sites may also be sore. Ibuprofen (Motrin), Tylenol or aspirin (one tablet every 3-4 hours as needed for pain) work well to alleviate the tenderness.
If pain or discomfort linger beyond a few days contact our office at Satula Family Dental Phone Number (414) 425-1510
