Healing time

Healing time

The healing time after gum surgery varies from one patient to another and depends on the general health of the patient, the extent of the tissue graft or the number of teeth affected by gingivectomy or gingivoplasty, and the motivation to follow the surgeon’s post-op instructions.

Remember that rest is essential to healing. During the first three days after your surgery, especially after a tissue graft, only plan on doing non-strenuous activities (such as reading or watching television). Your surgeon will tell you when you can resume your normal routine.
