Quick question about talking after gum graft



Former Member
Question (and yes I'm going to ask my periodontist too but this is just so I can start mentally adjusting to the possible prescribed orders): my periodontist mentioned that I needed to be conscious of how much I spoke after the gum graft to not overstretch my mouth. I mentioned that I'm currently studying two foreign languages and he said that would be fine, just limit talking outside of that.

SO.... for how long? Like 2-3 days? A week? The first two weeks until I go back for follow up?

Getting a synthetic graft on 10 of my bottom teeth (everything except the last one on each side).
