Sometimes the after effects of oral surgery are quite minimal and not all of the following instructions may apply in your case. Common sense will often dictate what you should do. If there is ever a question you should call our office at 568-755-9340.
Because of the close relationship between upper back teeth and the sinus, a communication between the sinus and mouth sometimes results from surgery. If this complication has occurred in your case, the area often heals slowly and with difficulty. Certain precautions will assist healing and we ask that you faithfully follow these instructions:
Slight bleeding from the nose is not uncommon for several days after surgery. Please keep our office advised of any changes in your condition, especially if drainage or pain increases. It is important that you keep all future appointments until this complication has resolved.
It is our desire that your recovery be as smooth and pleasant as possible. Following these instructions will assist you, but if you have questions about your progress, please call the office where you had surgery. A 24-hour emergency answering service is available to contact the doctor on call after hours at 568-755-9340. Calling during office hours will afford a faster response to your questions or concerns.
