At Iliff Family Dental our in house plan is a reduced fee dental membership for our patients who currently don’t have dental insurance. This plan not only allows our patients to receive preventive care, but they are able to receive top quality care and treatment at reduced prices.
All plan discounts begin immediately upon sign up. Members must remain in the plan for a minimum of 12 months.
It is normal for minor bleeding to occur during the first 24 hours following surgery. Minor bleeding can be described as if the gauze is pink in color or if you experience a slight taste of blood in your mouth.
Do not spit or rinse the surgical area on the day of the surgery. The day after surgery, you may gently rinse with warm salt water. You may brush your teeth and your tongue after the surgery but be careful of the surgical site.
You should start with liquids and very soft foods for the first 24-48 hours following the surgery. If the area feels a little better, you can then move on to a normal diet. Be careful of chewing on hard foods near the surgical area.
It is normal to experience some degree of swelling. If you do experience swelling, you can place ice over your face for 20-30 minutes at a time during the first 24 hours. This should help to reduce pain and swelling. Do not ice the surgical site after the first 36 hours. If you feel discomfort, it is recommended that you take an Advil or Tylenol to ease the pain. If the pain persists, please contact us here at Iliff Family Dental.
