What to Expect

The area worked on has been traumatized during apical microsurgery. For the next 48 hours it is NORMAL to feel discomfort in the area, as your body naturally creates inflammation in healing itself. Some soreness may last for up to one week or more. You may also feel some tenderness in your jaw from being open for an extended period of time. On occasion, slight bruising or swelling may occur. The anti-inflammatory medication that has been recommended (ibuprofen) will help with most of these symptoms. In addition, please refer to the following instructions.

Thank you for your visit, and we wish you continued health.
