Depending on the different treatments and services performed, it is important to adjust your regular hygienic care and eating habits during various periods of healing and repair. It is also of the utmost importance that after your mouth and gums have healed, and all treatments have had time to adjust to your mouth, that you maintain good, consistent hygienic habits for your teeth.

Oral Surgery

After all of the treatments, Dr. Naman B. Patel or our assistant will be able to instruct you on your individual post-operational instructions. To promote healing in your mouth and to minimize the risk of infection, we strongly encourage you to follow Dr. Naman B. Patel’s post operative instructions. Our dentist will carefully explain the precautions you should take.

Some soreness is to be expected following the procedures. Painkillers, such as Ibuprofen, may be taken before the anesthesia fully wears off to help with swelling and soreness. Avoid chewing sticky or hard foods and otherwise disturbing the surgical site.

If you have any questions about any of the procedures or any of the long-term effects of our services, do not hesitate to give us a call. We are willing and eager to answer your every question so we can provide you with the right kind of dental health and the best kind of smile that you can have.

Extractions

In most cases, the extraction of the tooth is the last resort in maintaining dental health. In order to keep your teeth healthy and functional, it is important that you keep a proper oral hygiene routine within the home and you consistently attend scheduled dental appointments.

To avoid post surgical instruction and promote healing, our team at Island Dental encourages you not to rinse your mouth or brush your teeth for 12 hours after surgery. When you do begin brushing your teeth, we advise you to brush gently and steer clear of the extraction site. Following the procedure, it is normal and expected to experience bleeding. Apply gauze to the extraction site for at least a half hour after your appointment to help control the bleeding.

Our dentist will provide you with specific instructions on how to receive the best possible results when healing. The doctor will also tell you that soreness and pain will be expected for the first few days after extraction. This is normal, and the soreness will subside.

For more information on post operation instructions in Gilbert, Arizona, please feel free to give us a call. We are here to help you restore and maintain your oral health.

I highly recommend Island Dental! I’ve been there twice and have received great dental care and advice. Christy was my hygienist today and she was incredible - it was the most thorough cleaning I’ve ever had. It took a little longer than other cleanings, but she let me know beforehand that she’s a perfectionist. She was sensitive to my needs and did a great job. Dr. Patel is nice too. When there was a claim error from a previous visit, the office staff immediately corrected it and saved me $10. They get you seen quickly too. Highly recommend overall :)

I have been coming to island dental for years and am so glad I put my trust in Dr Patel. He is very friendly and a very good dentist. My kids also go to this office and see Dr Patel. His team help accommodate to my younger kids and teenagers. I would highly recommend my friends and family to go to him.

Dr Patel and staff always make the visit comfortable, personable and perform noticeably great work . My teeth look amazing! Through their professional advisement of teeth maintenance between visits I have... no cavities and no more gum bleeding. As well as teeth care I have 4 more months of Invisaline teeth straightening to complete the process. As an adult I recommend this for your discreet teeth straightening needs. Thank you!

Very disappointed. My husband and I have been going to Island Dental for 4-5 years and have always been pleased with the experience. In the past, we’ve gotten in and out quickly and the receptionist has always been chatty and cheery. But mostly, we’ve been thrilled with the hygienists we’ve been seeing for years, Molly and Laura. This visit, we were surprised to have new hygienists (who we were not happy with), sales pitches for electric toothbrushes, water picks, crowns and Invisalign. The receptionist could barely muster words when checking out, let alone a smile. The whole experience was awful. When I asked about the hygienists we’d been seeing for years, I was told “they both don’t work here anymore.” That’s a red flag. Also, the hygienist my husband got told him she was a “fill in” and complained about customer service Indian telemarketers during their chat. Awkward. And the one I had knew I was uncomfortable with the new water pick cleaning system their using now and said “it made the process faster.” And then proceeded to dig at my teeth with regular tools for another ten minutes. Was it faster? Or could you have shown some compassion and listened to the patient. Needless to say, we’re not going back and are now on the hunt for wherever Molly and Laura went. If you’re out their ladies, find me!!! From, the Cat Couple.
