  • You might be hungry after the procedure, but it’s a good idea to wait until the anesthesia wears off. We are fully sympathetic about you wanting to fill your tummy, but we just don’t want to see you bite your tongue or cheek along the way.
  • A little bit of discomfort after any procedure is normal. However, if the symptoms you had originally return or there’s pain last longer than a few days, come in and see our experts.
  • Once you get the okay from our dental professionals, you can resume your normal brushing and flossing habits. Before that, our Aliso Viejo laser dentistry experts will tell you how to keep your mouth clean. More often than not, we’ll give you instructions on how to rinse your mouth up to four times daily with salt water. This is especially important after you eat so that any loose particles of food will be removed.
