Rinse with a mouthwash containing chlorhexidine; Savacol and Curasept are the two recognised rinses.
Brush the teeth around the implant area with a normal soft tooth brush.
5 days after the implant is placed gentle brushing may be started to help control food and plaque buildup.
Some discomfort or minor swelling of the gum tissues is expected, anything more significant requires attention by the dentist.
7 days after placement the sutures will need to be removed. Further care instructions will be issued then.
If a denture has been made to fit over the implant, it should be possible to wear it the day after implant placement. If the denture feels to be resting on the implant, contact the dental surgery for attention. Leave the denture out.
