Painless Oral Injection Systems Instructions

Pre-operative Instructions

  • Dress comfortably the day of the surgery.
  • Avoid wearing earrings or any accessories for facial or tongue piercings.
  • Loose hairstyles work best. However, ponytails and hairstyles that place the bulk of hair at the back of the head are not recommended.
  • Avoid tight/binding clothing.

The day of surgery, it is recommended that you leave your cell phone or laptop computer with a loved one or turn your electronic devices off completely. Once you have been seated in the treatment room you will not be able to answer phone calls or respond to text or e-mail messages.

We welcome family and friends to accompany you and stay with you throughout your procedure in the treatment room. However, we ask that all electronic devices by all persons present be powered off. In addition, no food or drinks are allowed.

It is human nature for friends and family to be concerned for your well being during your procedure. However, should you desire total privacy and no visits please do not hesitate to inform the staff prior to being seated.

The temperature of our treatment room tends to be quite chilly. This is necessary in order to ensure low levels of bacteria.

  • During your procedure we will provide you with a warm blanket, however we recommend that you bring a light sweater as well.
  • It is not necessary to fast before your scheduled procedure. In fact, we prefer that you eat a well balanced meal prior to your surgery.
  • Stock up on 2 days worth of soup and soft foods for after the surgery.
  • Prescriptions that are either given to you or called in to the pharmacy prior to your surgery are to be taken after your procedure. PLEASE DO NOT START TAKING ANY MEDICATIONS BEFORE YOUR SCHEDULED SURGERY UNLESS INSTRUCTED BY THE DOCTOR TO DO SO.

In conclusion, should you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact our office.

Post Laser Periodontal (Gum) Disease Therapy Instructions

  • Do not be alarmed with any color changes or appearance of tissues following laser therapy.
  • Tissues can be gray, yellow, red, blue, purple, “stringy” and reflect normal response to laser treatments.
  • Reduce activity for several hours following the surgery.

It is OK to spit, rinse, and wash your mouth today. Rinse as directed with Peridex or Periogard morning and night. In between it is OK to rinse gently every three (3) hours with warm salt water (1/2 teaspoon of salt dissolved in an 8oz. Glass of warm water). Do not chew on the side of your mouth, which has been treated.

  • Do not eat spicy or excessively hot foods.
  • Try to keep your mouth as clean as possible in order to help the healing process. After that, brush, floss, and follow other home-care measures in all the areas of your mouth except for the surgerized area.
  • Do not apply excessive tongue or cheek pressure to the surgerized area.

Do not be alarmed if one of the following occurs:

  • Light bleeding
  • Slight swelling
  • Some soreness, tenderness, or tooth sensitivity
  • Medicinal taste, from Peridex or Periogard

The surgical pack is placed on the area to prevent food, trauma, and/or smoke from irritating the surgerized tissues. If a piece of the pack falls out or if the entire pack loosens or falls out, do not be alarmed.

Swelling may possibly occur. However, to keep this at a minimum, gently place an ice pack on the outside of the face for 20 minutes each hour until you retire for sleep that night. Do not continue using the ice pack beyond the day of the periodontal surgery.

Some oozing of blood may occur and will appear to be greatly exaggerated when it dissolves in saliva. Determine the side of oozing and place pressure on this area. If you cannot locate the origin of the bleeding, rinse your mouth gently with iced water and apply a wet tea bag to the general area. If excessive bleeding continues, please call the office.

It is very important to maintain a good food and fluid intake. Try to eat soft but nutritious food such as eggs, yogurt, cottage cheese, malts, ice cream, etc. until you can comfortably return to a normal diet.

If medication has been prescribed, please take exactly as directed.

Please call the office so that we may render further treatment if any of the following occurs:

  • Prolonged or severe pain
  • Prolonged or excessive bleeding
  • Considerably elevated or persistent temperature

Do not be alarmed that beginning with just two weeks after therapy and extending as long as one year or more, the teeth may become sore, tender, or sensitive as the bone and ligaments around the teeth regenerate and become more firm. This is a sign of healing, but also indicates the presence of a bite imbalance that needs to be adjusted.

  • Anything put through a food blender.
  • Cream of wheat, oatmeal, malt o meal

Common Questions for Parents

How often does my child need to see the pediatric dentist?
A check-up every six months is recommended in order prevent cavities and other dental problems. However, your pediatric dentist can tell you when and how often your child should visit based on their personal oral health.
Are baby teeth really that important to my child?
Primary, or “baby,” teeth are important for many reasons. Not only do they help children speak clearly and chew naturally, they also aid in forming a path that permanent teeth can follow when they are ready to erupt.
When should I take my child to the dentist for the first check-up?
In order to prevent dental problems, your child should see a pediatric dentist when the first tooth appears, or no later than his/her first birthday.
Why is it important to see a pediatric dentist instead of a general dentist?
Every dentist undergoes the same initial educational process, but those looking to become specialists in certain fields (such as orthodontics, periodontics, oral surgery, or, of course, pediatric care) must then enter into additional years of advanced training so that they’re fully prepared to provide their patients with the best care possible. Here in Frisco, parents can rest assured that our doctors know how to handle the unique challenges that come with treating children and ensure healthy, happy results that last for years to come – in fact, all four are certified by the Texas State Board and are Diplomates of the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry.

What diet and nutritional advice can be offered for building strong teeth?

Experts agree that children need food from all the major food groups to grow properly and stay healthy. Too many carbohydrates, sugars (for example, from cake, cookies, candies, milk, fruit juice, and other sugary foods and beverages), and savory foods and starches (for example, pretzels and potato chips) can cause tooth decay. How long carbohydrates remain on the teeth is the main culprit that leads to tooth decay. Read more

The effects of fruit on kids teeth

We all know that fruit is full of vitamins and an important part of kids diets. But did you know that too much fruit (whether it’s fresh fruit, fruit juices, dried fruit or canned fruit) can have a negative effect and contribute to problems such as cavities and erosion, especially if your kids are grazing on fruit all day?

Are sports drinks okay for kids?

Statistics continue to show an alarming increase in the consumption of sports and energy drinks, especially among kids. Along with having the potential to cause various health problems, these beverages can cause irreversible damage to teeth. And sugar is only part of the reason — high acidity levels in these drinks erode enamel, the outer layer of teeth. Read more
