DENTAL EXTRACTION AND DENTAL IMPLANT CARE :

After Dental Implants are placed there is usually minimum bleeding involved. Do not disturb the surgical area. Bite down on the gauze packs that have been placed over the surgical area. Bleeding is controlled by biting down on gauze, especially for the first hour after the extraction or surgery. It is possible that the gauze and your saliva could be blood tinged. This is normal and does not indicate the active bleeding, and does not require to continue using the gauze. Biting down on the gauze is not very helpful after the first few hours. Please do not sleep with gauze in your mouth. Bleeding should never be persistent and severe. If bleeding is uncontrolled, please contact our office.

Do not spit or rinse for the first 24 hours. This may dislodge the blood clot and bleeding may start again.

Swelling is diminished by application of ice packs to the outside of your face over the surgery site, alternating 20 minutes on and 20 minutes off. Using ice to minimize the swelling is effective for the first 24 hours, so further use of ice is not necessary.

Most dental extractions involve some degree of discomfort. If you are given prescription for infection and/or pain or over the counter medication, please take it as advised.

Eat any nourishing food that can be tolerated without any discomfort. Avoid very hot foods. it is advisable to use soft and cold foods( soups, puddings, yogurt, milk shakes, ice cream etc.) for the first day after the surgery. You can gradually progress to solid foods over the next several days. Please do not skip meals and remember that good nourishing food helps in feeling good, healthier and healing faster.

Do not smoke for at least 48 hours as this can hamper healing. Do not rinse vigorously for 24 hours. You may brush your teeth gently exercising care not to disturb the surgical area.

Beginning day after surgery it is recommended to rinse your mouth with warm salt water at least 4-5 times /day. Keep your mouth very clean, it is very important.
