Your Teeth After Surgery



Recommended Posts

My boyfriend had a lot of tartar build up at his last exam. Hygienist said it could be due to 1 week pre-op liquid diet and 4 weeks of post op liquid and pureed food. Since he's not chewing food, it could be the cause. She recommended brushing with a soft brush, esp following drinking Protein Shakes. I plan to do the same when I begin my pre-op diet!

Interesting! Probably not a bad idea after Protein shakes...
