Irrigation Syringe Instructions
This syringe is to aid you in cleaning the lower extraction sites, thereby assisting nature’s healing process. You may start this care on the fifth day after surgery. To begin, place the curved tip in a glass of plain, warm water and draw back on the plunger until it is full. Insert into the wound and empty the warm water from the syringe.
Irrigate at least twice a day or after every meal. This will help with pain and odor control. You will begin to notice when food and debris no longer collect in the wound. This typically means it’s okay to stop.
