Postoperative care instructions

Do not chew any hard foods for 24 hours. The amalgam continues to harden for this period of time.

Do not chew gum for 24 hours.

Wait to chew anything until the anesthectic is gone. If the patient chews before the numbness from the anesthetic is gone, he may bite his cheek and tongue, creating sore soft tissue.

If amalgam is a two surface restoration with a contact to another tooth, the patient should not floss that area for 24 hours.

If restoration feels high or the other teeth are not occluding, the patient should call the office for a check and adjustment of the occlusion.
