If I need gum surgery, will I need to take time off from work?

It's common to experience some soreness and swelling the day after gum surgery, but it is not necessary to stay home from work. Over-the-counter pain medications like Advil or ibuprofen are often all that's needed to minimize any discomfort you might experience. Many of our patients are comfortable enough to go back to work the day following their gum surgery.
