What to Expect
When the freezing wears off, you may feel some tenderness around the area for 24-48 hours. The feeling is very similar to when you first get braces or Invisalign®.
Post Op Instructions
- Rinse the area with salt water. Mix one teaspoon of salt in a small glass of lukewarm water and rinse for 1 minute.
- Take Tylenol® for discomfort but NOT Advil®, Ibuprofen® or Aleve®. Anti-inflammatories suppress the process of speeding up tooth movement.
- When brushing and flossing, be gentle around the area where you had the Propel procedure.
