ORAL HYGIENE – Use light brushing techniques around affected area for today, and thereafter, brush normally.
PAIN – If necessary, a medication such as Tylenol or Advil or other non-aspirin containing product can be taken. If anything, the affected area may feel like a pizza burn.
DIET – No salty or spicy foods for 48 hours and avoid crunchy and sharp foods (i.e. pretzels, chips, etc) for the same amount of time.
HEALING PROCESS – The affected area will take up to 7-10 days to heal. It may look like the area is bruised and the membrane will change to a slight grey/white color. This may look like an infection, but it is a normal part of the healing process.
