After Socket Preservation Graft

Careful, normal brushing is required. Use a soft toothbrush and brush right up to the teeth adjacent to the surgical site.

Rinse the area 3 times per day with warm, slightly salty water.

If we provided you with an antimicrobial rinse, please rinse with it 2 times per day until completed.This is best done right after your salt water rinse.

Do not use over-the-counter rinses such as Listerine or Scope.

If we prescribed you an antibiotic, be sure to finish it completely.

Do not worry if you notice small particles of graft material in your mouth. This is normal.
