it easy for the rest of the day. Take as little exercise as you can, and rest
as much as you can. Keep your head up to avoid any bleeding.
Avoid hot food or drinks until the anesthetic
wears off. This is important as you cannot feel pain properly and may burn or
scald your mouth. Also be careful not to chew your cheek. This is quite a
common problem, which can happen when there is no feeling. If you do rest, try
to keep your head higher for the first night using an extra pillow if possible.
It is also a good idea to use an old pillowcase, or put a towel on the pillow,
in case you bleed a little.
