It is imperative that you follow the post-operative care instructions carefully. Adhere to the antibiotic and oral rinse regimen, while ensuring that the surgical site is kept clean through conscientious home care. It is also important that you chew on the opposite side of the graft and be very careful with brushing to avoid disturbing the membrane protecting the graft. You will be asked to return at 2 weeks and 4 weeks after the procedure for your follow up.
