Great Job! Now that you’ve had your scaling and root planing,your gums will be sore. Take an over the counter pain reliever before the anesthetic wears off and continue to take it for the next 2-3 days .

for the next few days avoid crunchy and spicy foods as this can further irritate the gums .

Brush and floss a minimum twice per day using a soft tooth brush and gently brushing your teeth and gums in small circular motion use warm salt water rinses as often as you can this will help kill bacterias and speed up the process of healing the gum.Take an 8.oz glass of water and apply 1/2 tsp of salt and 1/2 tsp of baking soda mix it well and rinse thoroughly for at least 40 seconds at a time.
