Is there anything else I need to do after the apicectomy?

October 18, 2019

It is important to keep the surgical site as clean as possible for the first few weeks after surgery.

It may be difficult to clean your teeth around sites of the extraction because it is sore. If this is the case is it best to keep the area free from debris by gentle rinsing with a mouthwash or warm salt water (dissolve a flat teaspoon of kitchen salt in a cup of warm water), starting on the day after surgery.

Could you be covered?
