Healing Period: Depending on the type, the sutures are either absorbed or they are removed at the end of one week after the procedure. During this period, oral hygiene should be well maintained and use of mouth rinse is recommended to prevent the bacteria colonization over the sutures.
After the implant surgery, following your dentist’s advice will allow a quick healing process.
When performing dental care after the operation, you should exercise care and take care of the wound site. Applying cold compresses on your cheek for 10 minutes will reduce swelling and may even prevent its emergence. Please note that smoking will delay wound healing.
To prevent infections that may potentially develop after the implant surgery, you should receive the antibiotic treatment prescribed by your dentist. Painkillers can be used to relieve the pain.
Be careful not to vigorously rinse your mouth or spit for the first 2 days.
