After oral surgery it is important to keep your mouth clean, especially to help the wound heal uneventfully. Your oral surgeon, dentist or dental hygienist will have given you individualized advice about how to look after the surgical wound as it heals. The GUM® Post-Surgical toothbrush has been designed with those instructions in mind so you can keep the healing wound clean.
The main purpose of the GUM® Post-surgical toothbrush is to be very gentle but highly effective in removing dental plaque and food debris from near the healing wound and any sutures keeping the wound closed.
Use the GUM® Post-surgical toothbrush as instructed by your dental professional until your surgical site is fully healed. Do not forget to perform your normal oral hygiene routine of toothbrushing and between-teeth cleaning for all teeth and gums not involved in the surgery. This not only keeps the rest of your mouth clean and healthy but also helps reduce the buildup of potentially infectious bacteria around the surgical site.
Being so soft and gentle, the GUM® Post-Surgical toothbrush can be used around mouth irritations and ulcers and to clean exposed roots that may have sensitivity.
Use the GUM® Post-Surgical toothbrush as directed by you dental professional.
