Implant Surgery


How to care for your new implant

After implants have been placed, it’s important to follow these recommendations during the healing period, Please read before section on Post Extraction and Minor Surgery section before contiuing as they are applicable following implant almost as much

General care
To control minor bleeding after surgery, apply moderate pressure with gauze pads or a clean, moist tea bag wrapped in a gauze pad.
If you usually wear removable appliances, such as dentures or partial dentures, we may advise you not to wear them while the implant sites heal.

Medication and discomfort
Take antibiotics or other medications only as directed. 


To reduce discomfort or swelling for several days after surgery, use ice packs. It’s normal for your gums to be sore and swollen for several days. Beginning 24 hours after surgery, rinse your mouth three times a day for two weeks with warm salt water. Use about 1 teaspoon of salt per glass of warm water. Swish very gently so you don’t disturb the implant sites.

Chewing and eating
Avoid chewing until the numbness from the anesthetic has completely worn off. If we placed any temporary restorations, avoid chewing for at least one half-hour to allow the temporary cement to set. Limit your diet to soft foods like yogurt, cottage cheese, soups, softcooked eggs, and ground meat for the first several months after surgery. Do not chew hard, crusty foods. Also avoid very hot or spicy foods until your gums are healed.

Brush and floss around the implants thoroughly but gently. We may also recommend special floss, brushes, mouth rinses, or other cleaning aids to keep the area free of bacteria.

 

Medication and discomfort
Take antibiotics or other medications only as directed. To reduce any discomfort or swelling, rinse your mouth three times a day with warm salt water. Use about 1 teaspoon of salt per glass of warm water. It’s normal for your gums to be sore and swollen for a few days.

 

About tobacco
