1. How to take care of your implants first 14 days?
Don't bite or chew on the side where implants are installed (the first month after the surgery is the most challenging, biting on the implants is however not allowed during the whole healing period)
Don’t try to sway the implant or move it in any other way
Eat only soft food first 14 days after the surgery (pureed food is the best choice)
Don't clean up the implant and area next to it the first day, neither with toothbrush or dental floss. However, clean the rest of your mouth thoroughly.. 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 your implant, even after you have a crown or a dental bridge installed.
2. How to avoid infection near implants?
Maintain thorough oral hygiene
Start using a soft toothbrush the day after surgery. During the first week, start rinsing your mouth with Curasept or Corsodyl, which disinfect your mouth. Don't swallow!.
During first 24 hours don't rinse in order not to 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 a cold compress onto your face (keep it there for 20 minutes, then take it off for 20 minutes)
Attention! By that we mean applying plastic 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 reducing 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 have complications, see your dentist.
When you lye down, it is recommended to use more pillows.
Painkillers can irritate your stomach, so use them according to recommended dosage.
4. What to do if you have bleeding after the surgery?
It's best to bite onto a clean dental gauze or an ironed handkerchief.
If nosebleed starts(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. You will have to smoke much less after implantation, because it has a bad effect on implants. During the first 14 days alcohol is also prohibited.
