WHAT YOU MUST KNOW AND WHAT YOU SHOULD DO AFTER TOOTH IMPLANTATION

BLEEDING
After implantation, bleeding is possible for a short period of time. Saliva may turn pinkish. Most often the bleeding stops within a couple of hours.
If the bleeding continues at home, roll a piece of gauze into a swab, apply it to the wound, close your teeth and keep it intact for 30 minutes. Apply a cold compress from the outside.

SWELLING
Facial swelling may occur for 2-3 days after the surgery. It may be almost unnoticeable but it may also be very pronounced.

FIRST DAYS AFTER THE SURGERY

PHYSICAL ACTIVITY
Physical work is not recommended, it is advisable to mostly stay in a sitting position. When lying down, keep the head as high as possible. It is advisable to use two pillows.

MEDICINE
All medicine and/or nasal drops prescribed by the doctor should be used from the first day of surgery.

SWELLING
To reduce swelling, put a bag with ice folded in a towel on the cheek and hold for 20 minutes. Repeat this procedure every 20 minutes, several times.

ANTIBIOTICS.
Use exactly as prescribed.

PAINKILLERS AND ANTI INFLAMMATORY DRUGS
Any painkiller prescribed by your doctor can be used to relieve pain. Take the painkiller 2 – 3 times a day for 2 – 5 days. All other prescribed drugs should be taken as usual.

DIET
On the first day after surgery, do not rinse your mouth and eat hot food or consume hot drinks. It is also not advisable to drink with a straw. It is recommended to have a warm, soft consistency meal, chewing on the opposite side of where the surgery was performed.

FIRST WEEK AFTER THE SURGERY

ORAL HYGENE
The next day after the surgery, start brushing your teeth 3 times a day with toothpaste, then rinse your mouth with 0.2% chlorhexidine solution. If the implants are uncovered and the screw heads are visible in the mouth, they should be cleaned with a toothbrush and toothpaste from the 3rd day after the surgery, despite possible minor bleeding of the gums.

SPORT
In the first week after the implantation it is not recommended to attend sports classes and you should not take a hot shower or bath.

DIET
In the first week, in order not to traumatise the postoperative wound, it is advisable to consume easily chewable, warm food.

SUTURES
Sutures are removed 7 – 14 days after the surgery.

SMOKING AND ALCOHOL
Smoking can adversely affect healing of the postoperative wound and successful implantation. We recommend avoiding smoking for two weeks after the surgery.
Do not drink alcohol for 7 days after the surgery.

FIRST MONTH AFTER THE SURGERY

DIET
From the second week, when the sutures are removed, you can eat any consistency of food. However, for a while, it is advisable to chew on the opposite side of the implantation.

MEDICINE
From the second week, there is no longer any need to use any medicine.

ORAL HYGENE
Oral hygiene must be performed as usual, replacing chlorhexidine with water or any mouthwash.
