In order to achieve a successful outcome from a Dental Implant procedure, there are some important aftercare instructions which need to be followed to help you in the days after you have had your Implants placed. There can be some discomfort during the days following the surgery but here are pointers that we use at the Marylebone Implant centre to keep you as comfortable as possible after surgery:
- You may taste blood in your mouth in the first 2 days after your surgery, if you bleed during the first 48 hours after your treatment you can control the bleeding by putting some pressure in the area with a piece of gauze.
- Apply ice on the outside of the face for 15 minutes every hour for the first 2 days after your surgery. Swelling will occur in the side of the face where you had your surgery. This will increase for 48 hours and then start to subside and then should disappear by the end of the second week after your surgery.
- Bruising may develop above the eye and neck area on the side where you had your surgery.
- We recommend a soft or liquid diet for the first week after surgery. Things like soup, smoothies, juices and yoghurts are ideal.
- Please avoid hot drinks for the first week.
- If you feel like you are getting better do not stop the medication and instructions given by the surgeon, it needs to be taken as instructed.
- Mouthwashes contain alcohol which dry out the mouth, do not use mouthwash for the first week.
- To rinse use salt water for your mouth, after rinsing do not spit hard, let it dribble out of your mouth.
- Do not spit or rinse during the first 48 hours if you have had a tooth extracted.
- Do not exercise during the first 48 hours after your surgery as it will increase pain and swelling.
- Keep physical activities to a minimum immediately following surgery, and more vigorous activities for two weeks, things like swimming or aerobic activities.
- If you have any worries or concerns do not hesitate to contact our support team for some help.
