TOOTH REPLANTATION, CARE AFTER

After your procedure, it is common in the first 48 hours to have:

  • Pain.

Medicines

  • If you were prescribed an antibiotic medicine, finish all of it even if you start to feel better.
  • Take medicines only as directed by your health care provider.

Lifestyle

  • Avoid participating in contact sports.
  • Eat soft-textured foods as directed by your health care provider.
  • Do not use any tobacco products including cigarettes, chewing tobacco, or electronic cigarettes. If you need help quitting, ask your health care provider.

General instructions

  • Take care of your teeth as directed by your health care provider. This may involve using a soft toothbrush and using a mouth rinse.
    • Brush your teeth with a soft-bristled toothbrush after meals.
  • If directed, apply ice to the injured area:
    • Put ice in a plastic bag.
    • Place a towel between your skin and the bag.
