Swollen cheeks after visiting the dentist?
A visit to the dentist is not always a relaxing affair. Especially large surgical interventions such as the removal of wisdom teeth or a root canal treatment can cause uncomfortable pain and swelling within the mouth. To avoid a lengthy recovery period, Olivia Grace Therapies offers a special treatment to support the regeneration and fast recovery after intense dental surgeries.
How to effectively reduce swelling
The lymphatic system is our body’s “drainage system”. Lymphatic capillaries collect excess liquids, cell residue and toxins and filter them into the lymphatic nodes. From there on they are lead back through the blood circulation and out of the body through the kidneys and bladder.
A large number of lymphatic nodes are located along the throat and are responsible for the drainage of the head, face and jaw. A manual lymphatic drainage after the removal of wisdom teeth or other surgeries can effectively reduce swelling and pain and facilitate faster healing.
To achieve the best results, this therapy should begin on the same day as the surgery or the following day.
