Any surgical procedure will result in a certain amount of discomfort. Swelling and pain are not abnormal disturbances, but only indications of the healing process. To minimize this discomfort, the directions below must be followed.

Some surgical procedures are more involved than others (for example jaw surgery or impacted wisdom teeth removal). The following conditions are not uncommon after these types of surgical procedures:

Lower lip numbness may result following a procedure.  This is almost always a temporary condition.  It may last from a few days to many months.

Sores may develop at the corners of the mouth. These should be covered with a mild ointment, such as Vaseline.
