Surgical Instructions

It is important to us that our patients are informed during every step of their treatment so that they are well prepared and have the chance to ask questions. The following information is a starting point for researching your procedure and should assist in developing a list of questions to ask during your consultation.


* Shop for cold food items for first 24 hours after sugery (ice cream, yogurt, pudding, ensure, jello, etc).

* Shop for soft nuturitious foods.

* Plan on a 6 weeks healing period; you should progressively be able to adjust your diet to more solid foods as time passes.

(Ex: eggs, soups, oatmeal, mashed potatoes & gravy, yogurt ensure, mac & cheese, quiche, sweet potatoes, stewed veggies.)

* Purchase "Nappy" washclothes, Q-tips & Closys II mouth rinse from pharmacy. This is usually found on the lower shelf in the same area as the mouthwashes. These items will be used for at-home care for yourself and your new dentures.
