Sinus Exposure

Sinus Exposure

A sinus exposure is an uncommon, but potential complication that can occur during the removal of top teeth. As long as all special post-care instructions are carefully followed, recovery can occur predictably and with ideal results.

In addition to the routine post-operative instructions you received, it is very important that you follow the directions outlined below.

  • Make sure to rest and relax for the next 3 days
  • Lay with your head slightly elevated for the next 3 days
  • Take all the medications as prescribed
