After Implant Surgery

Things to look out for and useful information

Things to Consider After Dental Implant Surgery;

FIRST HOUR: Gently hold the gauge placed on the surgical areas and keep them in place. Do not change the gas buffer in the first hours unless the bleeding is checked. The gauze can be gently removed after an hour. If active bleeding persists, place a sufficient amount of new gauze in the surgical area to achieve another 30 minutes of pressure. Gases can be replaced as needed (usually every 30 to 45 minutes).

NETWORK STORY: It is important to keep the mouth clean. You should brush your teeth even on the night of surgery, but you need to be kind around the surgical areas. If there is minimal bleeding, saltwater rinses can begin 24 hours after surgery (mix 8 cups of salt with 1 tablespoon of water.) Shake gently Rinses should be carried out 2-3 times a day, especially after eating.

ACTIVITIES: Postoperative activities should be sofa or bed rest for the first day. Bending, lifting or strenuous activity will cause increased bleeding, swelling and pain. Exercise in the post-implant period can cause an increase in bleeding, swelling and discomfort. Exercise should be avoided 3-4 days after surgery.

Blood Leakage: Bleeding occurs immediately after surgery and it is normally possible to leak blood for 24-48 hours after surgery. Remember that oral bleeding consists of a small blood and a lot of saliva. Placing a gauze buffer in the area and biting tightly controls bleeding. If the leakage is still active, you can replace the gauge every 30-45 minutes.

Severe and Persistent Bleeding: Bleeding should not be severe. If so, it usually means that the gas buffer is not sufficiently compressed between the teeth and does not put pressure on surgical areas. Try positioning the gauge correctly again. If the bleeding continues, avoid physical activity, use ice packs. If the bleeding continues uncontrollably, please contact our clinic.

SHISHING: It is normal after swelling implant treatment and swelling may increase for 2-3 days after surgery. A cold package can be minimized by applying tightly to the cheek next to the surgical site using an ice pack or a frozen cold compress bag wrapped in a towel. It should be applied by holding it on the cheek every twenty minutes and for twenty minutes for the first 12 hours after surgery. If you have received a prescription for controlling swelling, do not forget to take it in accordance with the instructions.

Does pain-implant pain after implant?: Most oral surgery is accompanied by some discomfort. You usually have a prescription for painkillers. If you take the first pill before anesthesia, you can better manage the discomfort. Remember that the most severe pain is usually for six hours after the end of local anesthesia; After that, your need for medication will decrease. If you often take large amounts of painkillers at intervals, please call our clinic.

NUTRITION: Avoid extremely hot foods. Do not use whole grain and sesame foods in the first days after surgery. Liquids or mashed foods (soups, puddings, yogurt, dairy products, etc.) Limiting the intake on the first day is sometimes advisable, but not necessarily necessary. Avoid chewing until a feeling of tongue occurs. It is best to avoid foods such as rice, nuts, sunflower seeds, popcorn, etc.

Instructions for The Second and Third Day

BRUSHING: Start normal oral hygiene as soon as possible after surgery. Surgery may not allow space width and swelling brushing, but cleaning your teeth within comfort limits is extremely important. For optimal and rapid healing, it is necessary to provide a clean environment adjacent to surgical wounds.

Recovery After Implantation: Normal recovery after implant placement should be as follows: The first two days after surgery are usually uncomfortable and often have swelling. On the third day you should be more comfortable, and although it is still swollen, usually the pain disappears. If there is no continuous improvement after the surgery, call our clinic.

Sharp Edges: If you feel hard or sharp edges in surgical areas, you will feel bone walls that remain and support around the pulled teeth. Sometimes small slices of bone disappear spontaneously within a week. If it causes concern or discomfort, please call his office.

Lip Edge Cracking and Drying: If the corners of your mouth stretch during the surgical procedure, they can dry out and crack. Keep your lips moated with vaseline-like ointment.

Sore throat: Implant is a condition that can occur after treatment. The muscles swell, and this can make swallowing painful. This situation will disappear in 2-3 days.

Difficulty Opening the Mouth (Trismus): Implant surgery can cause a limitation on opening the mouth for several days. This usually improves the week after surgery after a normal post-implant condition. Stretching the muscles that cause this condition and exercising can help speed up the resolution of this problem.

The conditions that may occur after treatment can be completely personalized and unique. Do not accept the well-intentioned advice of your friends. You can communicate your problem to your dentist and get the necessary information from him.

What are the Advantages of Dental Implants Compared to Other Treatments?

Implants and Advantages

The best alternative to healthy, natural teeth

A strong and fused dental implant allows it to look, feel, and function like a natural tooth instead of a lost tooth. Other options can cause bone deterioration and interfere with eating, smiling, speaking and other daily life activities.

Long-Lasting Treatment

Dental implants are a long-term solution. Although traditional tooth-assisted dental bridges are only between the last five and seven years, and with proper care, mostly more than 10 years, they may need to be replaced at some points. While dental implants may need periodic adjustments, they can remain in the mouth for life when properly placed over time and attention is paid to them.

Maintain your natural face shape and smile

A toothless face can sag and look sad. Dental implants allow you to maintain the natural shape on your face and smile.

Protects your healthy bone

Leaving a gap in your mouth after losing one or more teeth can lead to additional health problems, such as the loss or deterioration of part of the jawbone. When it is not used to support a natural female, the jawbone deteriorates, losing its strength and firmness. Dental implants are the only dental restoration option that protects and stimulates the natural bone, in fact helping to promote bone growth and prevent bone loss.

Nutrition and Chewing Comfort

Taste and enjoy your favorite foods without hesitation. Naturally you can bite and eat almost anything you want. Unlike uncomfortable removable prostheses, you can taste the food you eat better with implants. In cases such as eating, talking, smiling, laughing, kissing, yawning or coughing, moving prostheses can slip, you need to "reposition" the prostheses in place of them in the mouth. The dental implant is fixed in place of the teeth and integrates naturally with your jawbone, your teeth do not play or slip in place.
