Do not worry though, we will provide everything you need to heal properly. Complete healing could take up to a few weeks. At any time, please call us if you have any questions or are feeling discomfort.
Remember, when you are numb, do not bite your lip, cheek or tongue! Also please make sure you stick to water, juice, ice chips or popsicles, soft foods such as applesauce, pudding, yogurt.
