After your Dental Implant surgery, Brisbane Dental Implant Group will provide you with precise post-surgical instructions to ensure healing occurs quickly and effectively.
Below you will find some helpful information in caring for your Implant after surgery. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact Brisbane Dental Implant Group on (07) 3244 2400.
Immediately after the surgery
Once your Dental Implants have been inserted, you will need to bite down on a gauze pad to stop the bleeding. You will be given a pack of gauze pads to take home with you and apply to the surgical site. Continue to apply the gauze pads until the bleeding has stopped completely; changing them regularly in between.
You will be prescribed antibiotics as well as an antibiotic mouth rinse. You will need to follow the exact instructions for both. If you are in discomfort after the surgery you may also be given a pain killer.
Recovering from surgery
To relieve discomfort and swelling apply an ice pack for approximately twenty minutes each hour after surgery. We also recommend keeping your head elevated for the first twenty-four to forty-eight hours after surgery. This will further reduce the swelling and minimise bleeding. You also need to relax as much as possible and avoid any strenuous activities for up to three days after surgery.
Whilst recovering from surgery, it is essential to drink at least eight glasses of water or fruit juice each day. It is also important to limit your diet to soft foods (e.g. yoghurt or soup) during the first week.
You will be asked to rinse your mouth with a warm salt water solution – one teaspoon of salt in one cup of water – four times a day to further disinfect the area.
