Periodontal: Scaling and Root Planning

Please read and follow these post-operative instructions. They will keep you more comfortable, and prevent possible complications following scaling and root planning procedures.

As part of your treatment today, your hygienists may have prescribed a rinse for you to use 2 to 3 times a day. Be sure to start the rinse, brushing and flossing right away. You may need to be gentle at first. The ultimate success of this treatment is dependent on your home care regime and follow-up treatment in our office.

Your anesthesia will last up to a few hours after your visit. As the anesthesia is wearing off, if you feel tenderness or discomfort take up to four (800mg) ibuprofen tablets. If you cannot take Ibuprofen, then take what you would for relief for a headache. Most patients do not need any additional pain medication. If needed, you may continue to take ibuprofen every 4 to 6 hours as directed.

It is recommended that you wait until the anesthesia wears off completely before eating. Do most of your chewing on the untreated side of your mouth. Meals for your first day should be soft. Avoid hard, crunchy foods like chips, pretzels, nuts and popcorn for the next 3 to 4 days.

Should you experience any swelling, seldom does this occur, place cold compresses to the face the area of stiffness for intervals of 15 minutes. (A cold compress is crushed /cubed ice covered with washcloth or towel).

Smoking should be avoided following scaling and root planning procedures. Tobacco smoke is an irritant to healing. Please refrain for 24 hours or longer. If you have any questions please call our office.

We've got your smile in Stevens Point, Wisconsin!
