1. How to take care of your implants first 14 days?
Don't bite or chew on the side where implants are installed (the most challenging is the first month after the surgery, bite on the implants though isn't allowed during the healing period, that is 3 - 6 months).
Don't sway the implant.
First 14 days after the surgery eat only soft food (porridge is the best choice)
The first day don't clean up the implant and area next to it, neither with toothbrush or dental floss. Only clean the area next to it. Starting from the second day, you can start cleaning the implants with what your dental hygienist recommended (dental floss or ultra soft toothbrush).
If you use tooth prosthesis, avoid wearing it the first month after the surgery. If you must wear it for aesthetic reasons, it mustn't contact with the implants (the pressure would apply on them, making them sway) - it is recommended to check with your dentist or dental technician in order to avoid complications.
During an appointment with a dentist or dental hygienist tell them about implant, even after you have crown or a fixing bridge.
2. How to avoid the infection near implants?
Maintain ideal oral hygiene.
A day after surgery start using a soft toothbrush. During the first week, start rinsing your mouth with Curasept or Corsodyl, which disinfect your mouth. Don't swallow!.
In first 24 house don't rinse in order to not cause bleeding
Antibiotics: we recommend penicillin, if you have allergy to it, the alternative is ofloxacin.
We recommend nasal spray to people who have implants installed next to maxillary antrum or to patients after sinus lifting. Usually it is Nasivin spray or Muko Septonex E, 5 drops 3 times a day.
Attention! If you have implants installed in the upper jaw it is not advised to blow your nose in first two weeks (otherwise there is a risk of getting infection to the implant site through sinus).
3. How to lessen pain and swelling?
During first 2 days apply cold onto your face (keep there for 20 minutes, then off for 20 minutes).
Attention! By that we mean applying cellophane bags filled with ice (for example, frozen vegetables or cosmetic gel ice packs).
Ask your dentist if you can use medications from the drugstore, for example Aescin, that would be recommended to you for lessening swelling.
Your dentist will inform you on the matter and will write a prescription on needed medications!
If possible, use such enzymes as Wobenzym or Phlogenzym, dosage on the label instruction. If you're having complications, check in with your dentist.
When you're lying down, it is recommended to use more pillows.
Painkillers can irritate your stomach, so use after reading recommended dosage.
4. What to do if you have nosebleed after the surgery?
It's better to bite down onto a clean dental gauze or an ironed handkerchief.
If nosebleed started (usually after the surgery on upper jaw), don't blow your nose too hard, apply cold and use nasal spray. If the bleeding doesn't stop after an hour, contact your dentist.
5. Smoking is prohibited!
Especially during 14 days after the surgery. After the time you need to smoke less, because it has a bad effect on implants. During first 14 alcohol is also prohibited.
