Tips To Manage The Holidays After Oral Surgery

Posted on 11/7/2022 by Elmwood Dental Group
Tips To Manage The Holidays After Oral SurgeryDue to most people being off around the holidays, this is a common period for oral surgeries. Even if it fits your vacation itinerary, it may disrupt other arrangements. With a few tweaks, you may still travel, enjoy family activities, and eat a variety of foods. This applies whether you have a tooth pulled, implant surgery, or another procedure.

Most people may fly a few days following dental surgery, although a surgeon may restrict travel for longer. You should be able to drive or ride the train soon. Even if the swelling and bruising aren't fully gone, try a cold compress.

In addition, it may take a few days for any soreness to disappear, so it may be challenging to chew for the first few days. Your dental surgeon probably advises you to consume mushy meals, don't take a lot of chewing, and are simple to digest. You should also avoid eating anything hot or sour since they both have the potential to make your symptoms worse.

Physical Activities Can Impair The Healing Process

Various people recover at different speeds. Therefore, the restrictions placed on each individual's activities will be additional. Even if you are forced to watch the game from the stands, you can still do many fun things with your family, including playing board games or doing puzzles. So do not be concerned; you will not be out of commission for long.

The holidays do not have to be ruined because you need oral surgery. While you are spending time with your loved ones, you may take advantage of the opportunity to work on improving the appearance of your smile.
