WHAT TO EXPECT AFTERWARDS
Discomfort can vary after root planing, but one can expect mild soreness, since it’s usually in a deeper region under the gums.
After 24 hours, rinse with warm salt water two to three times a day (1/2 teaspoon salt to 1/2 cup warm water) for one week to improve circulation and soothe the tissues. Resume normal brushing and flossing after 24 hours.
Use of over the counter mouth wash is not encouraged during the healing process.
Avoid spicy or crispy/crunchy foods, alcohol and tobacco products, as well as straws, during the first 24 hours for the best results in healing.
Your Teeth can become more sensitive to temperature and bleeding might occur for about 1 day afterwards. Use caution if taking aspirin containing products as they may interfere with normal blood clotting.
