It is essential to the durability of your dental implant to be careful of the surgical site. You will find that there is often a metal healing cap present on the gum level. Don’t disturb the wound.
Avoid rinsing, spitting, chewing on or touching the sore or healing cap on the day of surgery. Be delicate with brushing your teeth around the surgical areas. In case you have received a prescribed mouthwash (Peridex) from us, please follow the directions on the package. Then keep to the general post operative instructions given to you during release.
For those who have a prosthetic device, such as flipper, stayplate, partial or denture, we will give you specific instructions for your particular case concerning when and how often you ought to or shouldn’t be using those devices.
