Post-Surgery Oral Care: Whitening Procedures

In the 2014-2015 winter season Sani Dental Group performed thousands of  dental procedures; our patients came the United States and Canada and many other places. The dental procedures included Surgeries, Dental Implants, Dental Cosmetics, Dental Cleaning and Whitening Procedures. For this post our team of professionals would like offer you a few post-surgery oral care tips that will help you after a whitening procedure has been performed.

Whitening Procedures

In Office Whitening

In-Office whitening is the fastest option to whiten teeth. When you visit your dentist he/will applied the whitening product directly into your teeth. With a combination of heat, special light and/or lasers you can see results in only 30 ~60 min. To achieve the best results several appoints may be require.

Home-Kit Whitening

Whitening Gel

This is a jelly-like product with hydrogen-peroxide, a chemical agent that bleaches and whitens teeth. The substance is applied in the surface of your teeth, either through strips, toothpastes, trays, or in rinses.

Whitening Strips

Over-the-counter whitening strips are slim and contain hydrogen peroxide. The strips are easy to apply; in most brands one treatment is composed of two strips. One strip is placed on the top while the other strip is placed on the bottom of your mouth.

In the kit, a common instruction states to use the product twice a day for two weeks. A minor problem with this product is that results are not seen immediately, they are usually seen after a few days and the result can last for months.

Post-Surgery Oral Care

After receiving whitening treatment, it is necessary to take care that this is consolidated so the final result is not diminished.

  • It is recommended that the next five days after you receive any whitening procedures; the patient should avoid eating:
    • Wine
    • Coffee
    • Tea
    • Chocolate
    • Red Sauces
    • Green Sauces
    • Olives
    • Cigar
  • Likewise we recommended the use of mouth rinses with whitening properties to help maintain the achieved color, make rinses for a minute every morning and night before brushing. The use of this product is only 5 days after having received the procedure.
  • Use toothpaste that combats the sensitivity during 5 days. You can extend its use until you finish the acquired tube, then returns to the toothpaste of your choice.
  • If there is great sensitivity and not enough with the use of gel to combat the sensitivity it is suggested the use of analgesics in the indicated doses.
