Arnica is also known as Arnica Montana is a plant commonly found in the Northwestern parts of the United States and Central Europe.  Arnica is made from a whole fresh flowering plant.

Arnica is given to our patients at the pre-operative visit.  The directions are easy to follow: Take five pellets of Arnica three times a day starting two days prior to surgery.  Place the pellets under the tongue and let them dissolve.  Please remember that your mouth should be clean before taking the pellets.
