Wound Care Information
- Keep the wound moist and/or greasy with Vaseline.
- If the wound gets pus filled, then use an AAA ointment.
- Use soap and water to clean the wound and its surrounding area.
- Lubricate the wound at mealtimes and bedtimes and if possible keep covered at all times. Keep out of direct sunlight.
- Diet is very important during wound recovery. Eat high in protein and lots of fruits and vegetables. Also take a multivitamin.
- If you have or develop fever and swelling, call your pediatric dentist for an appointment. You might need an antibiotic prescription.
