After Care

Our work is not done until our patients are fully healed and confident in their smile.

It’s important to us that we provide you the most information possible to make your post-operative experience a positive one.

Below, please download and review post-op instructions to use as your personal guide to a healthy mouth. If you think you are having an emergency, please call 911 immediately.

Temporomandibular Joint (TMJ)

The temporomandibular joint (TMJ) and surrounding muscles of mastication can develop pain and discomfort, classified as temporomandibular disorder.

Extraction & Oral Surgery

After extraction and oral surgery, it’s necessary to follow post-op instructions to ensure smooth recovery.


Once you receive your denture or partial denture, it requires some effort and time to be able to speak and chew as normal. Let Draver Dental guide you in the process.

Deep Cleaning

Most patients experience little or no postoperative discomfort, other than gum sensitivity for the first day or two after a deep cleaning. Keeping your mouth healthy until your next appointment is critical for long-term oral health.


Fillings are used in dentistry to repair a tooth after a cavity or defect is removed. Although you may be sore for a few days post-op, following Draver Dental’s care plan will help manage the healing process.

Crowns and Bridges

Crowns are a “cap” that protects a single tooth. A bridge is made from two or more crowns attached together to support and fill the space created from missing teeth. Print and save this guide the best post-op experience.
