There may be some pain, tenderness and bruising of the affected area after surgery when the anaesthetic wears off. Painkillers and mouth wash can be prescribed to alleviate these symptoms. Occasionally, antibiotics may be prescribed.
You will need to return in 3 to 5 days after the surgery for a review. The surgery site will be inspected, cleansed and the stitches removed. X-rays may be taken during this visit. The follow-up appointment to review bone healing is usually scheduled 6 months later.
