Do You Have an Infection After Oral Surgery?

 Tooth Infection Surprise Smiles AZ 85374-2451
Infections are a common problem with so many that have had oral surgery. It is important to consider many factors after the procedure is done.

Usually, the professionals here provide you with information on how to spot infections, so that if you notice one, you can seek out the professional help needed to reduce the chances of having anything further happen.

Make sure to keep an eye out for these symptoms, as an oral infection can cause a great deal of pain and should be taken care of as soon as possible through a professional dentist.

Signs of an Infection After Oral Surgery

Our dental professionals provide the patients with information regarding infections of the mouth after surgery. Watch for these infection signs:

•  Fever and pain
•  Bad breath or bitter taste in the mouth
•  Tooth sensitivity
•  Swollen glands in the neck, jaw or gum line
•  Extreme fatigue
•  General sick-like feeling

Usually after oral surgery, our surgeons will prescribe an antibiotic for most patients. This will reduce the chances of an infection actually happening. This also safeguards the person against problems that might come about for various reasons when oral hygiene is not kept up during the time.

Stick with the instructions given by our oral surgeons and keep the area clean and you should not have a problem with infections once the procedure has been completed. Our surgeons take all precautions to minimize these risks.

Call Our Professionals
If you have these symptoms, whether one or many, it is important to speak with our dentists. We provide you with more information to treat the infection or any other issues you might be having. An infection can become a larger problem if it is not treated effectively the first time. This is why calling our office to speak with someone, even after hours are important.

If you have any questions or would like to schedule an appointment, please call us at (602) 842-4864 today.
