Angel dental care – post operative advice

ANGEL DENTAL CARE – Post operative advice POST OPERATIVE CARE FOR PATIENTS FOLLOWING IMPLANT SURGERY 1. For the first 7 - 10 days after surgery, avoid physical exertion (i.e. sports, heavy lifting) 2. For the next 24 hours avoid hot drinks such as tea or coffee.
3. Salt Water - the day after surgery (no less than 24 hours) commence salt water rinses with 1/4 - 1/2 teaspoon salt in a cup of warm water and rinse after every meal as this will help to keep the wound clean and reduce soreness. Also rinse gently with Corsodyl mouthwash three times a day.
4. It is very important that your oral hygiene and home care is maintained to the highest of standards and that all hygiene appointments are attended.
5. Avoid alcohol for the first few days or longer as this affects the healing of the tissues. Avoid smoking for 2 weeks, as this will slow down the healing process. 6. Try to keep your denture out as much as possible after surgery to help healing of the
soft tissues. You may use a denture fixative to help hold your denture in place. Do not attempt to force dentures in to the mouth and should they become painful stop wearing them and contact your dentist.
7. If an antibiotic has been prescribed, please take only as directed and finish the course. If you appear to be having a reaction to medication, please contact the surgery.
8. Please maintain a soft diet for 10 days during the healing phase. Do not use a water-pick, explore the area with your tongue, or eat hard crusty foods.
9. If you have undergone a sinus lift procedure, avoid blowing your nose or drinking
through a straw for approximately 2 weeks after surgery. This will help prevent
infection. Please avoid flying or swimming for 2 weeks after surgery. If you feel like
sneezing please try to sneeze through your mouth and not through your nose.

10.Sleeping: Sleep with an extra pillow to lift your head for the first 2 nights to reduce swelling. 11.Supplements: All patients can help the process of healing by taking multivitamins and dairy products as part of their diet. I may have included some Arnica which helps to reduce post-operative bruising if you have had a large bone graft or multiple implants placed 11.CONTACT THE PRACTICE IF: Numbness persists for more than 24 hours after surgery, stitches become loose or fall out within the first five days or you experience excessive pain The standard regime for antibiotics and painkillers is as follows.
