Post Extraction Care

Post Extraction Care

It is extremely important to maintain sound oral hygiene after having an extraction. The mouth is the “dirtiest” environment in the body, teeming with microbes.

An extraction site is a wound. We are asking the body to heal a wound in a sea of microbes! Therefore, make sure you are cleaning the entire mouth at least twice a day, carefully brushing the teeth in the region of the extraction. You can also use a saltwater mouth bath several times a day to assist hygiene, making sure you do not swish vigorously (we need to preserve the friable blood clot!).

Don’t forget sound nutrition – the body needs a balanced array of vitamins and minerals to aid the process of healing.

Simple steps will make all the difference!

If you have any other questions regarding your dental care, you can call our Morwell dental practice on (03) 5134 1311.

We wish you all an enjoyable and safe long weekend!

Eat before an extraction!

Eat before an extraction!

Some patients choose not to eat anything before having a dental extraction. This can sometimes result in patients feeling lightheaded in the surgery, and occasionally fainting. Its always best to eat something which is nutrient dense before an extraction. If a patient is unable to eat, at least ingest a drink that contains sugar such as a sweetened cordial. This will ensure blood sugar levels will not fall too low during a procedure so we can avoid this sort of complication.

If you have any other questions regarding your next procedure you can call our Morwell dental practice on (03) 5134 1311.

Do you need Dental Work before the years end?

As the year comes to an end, closure dates for dental laboratory work is now near.

This is an important deadline for those patients who require dentures, crowns, veneers, etc prior to Christmas.

If you require offsite dental work to be completed prior to Christmas, then please call our surgery on (03) 5134 1311 to make an appointment as soon as possible.

Our surgery will be closed for the holiday season from Tuesday 24th December.

Wedding Season is here!

Wedding Season is here!

With wedding season in full swing, optimising your smile for the big day should be an obvious consideration.

Bleaching is a popular, non-invasive procedure that will enhance the colour of your teeth. There are a number of alternatives to bleaching. We would advise making an appointment at our surgery in Morwell at least several weeks before your wedding day to discuss these options at the chairside and allow sufficient time for treatment.

You can call our surgery on (03) 5134 1311 to make an appointment and speak to our friendly staff.
