Frequently Asked Questions
Do I need to schedule an appointment with the dentist even after I manage the gum injury at home?
Managing gum injuries at home is crucial, and it is the first step towards professional management in the dental clinic. Sometimes the home management is not sufficient and may lead to some serious issues. No matter if your gum injury is minor or major, or you have managed it at home, you should definitely visit the dentist for a proper professional evaluation and assessment. Dentists are certified in managing various dental injuries, professionally and safely.
Do I need to take antibiotics after any gum injury?
Taking antibiotics can only be done if recommended by your certified dental health care professional. Do not take antibiotics as over the counter medications.
Can I use home remedies to heal the gum injury?
It is recommended not to because the home remedies may worsen the scenario. Sometimes we do not know the side effects of the home remedies. It is best to let the injury heal on its own and take precautionary measures as directed by your dentist.
For how long do I need to quit brushing and flossing in case of gum injury?
It is recommended not to quit brushing and flossing. However, if the injury is inside the mouth and it is sutured, try not to brush for the first 48 hours (depends on the intensity of injury). Meanwhile, you can use a mouth rinse. Begin gentle brushing after 48 hours or as prescribed by your dentist. If the injury is small either outside or inside the oral cavity, and it is not sutured then you can do brushing and flossing gently without any delay.
How fast my gum injury is going to heal?
The healing process takes time depending on the degree of damage, how well you are taking care of it, and the immunity of the individual. For example, in children, the healing process usually takes less time than younger and older adults. Make sure to use prescribed medications and guidelines.
Will the dental health care professional always choose, suturing for my gum injury?
No. The ultimate treatment for gum injuries is not always suturing. Your dental professional will plan and decide the treatment specifically based on your need. If the injury is small and superficial, more likely you are not going to get sutures as compared to the deep and large injuries, where the wound needs to be closed medically with the help of sutures.
How often do I need to visit my dentist for a follow-up?
Follow-ups should be made as recommended by your dentist.
