Implant Surgery

  • You may experience some pain, swelling and bleeding after the surgery.
  • Take all prescribed medications according to the doctor’s instructions.
  • After the surgery, for the remainder of the day, apply an ice bag on your face over the surgical site for 10 minutes on and 5 minutes off.
  • Keep your next appointment, for removal of sutures and follow up checks.
  • Do not raise your lips with your fingers to inspect the treated area.
  • Do not brush teeth near the surgical site. Brush teeth in the rest of your mouth.
  • There is often a temporary loss of feeling in the operated area and the tooth may feel loose.
  • Do not smoke, spit or use a straw on the day of the surgery (avoid smoking for a few days after the surgery).
  • Should any difficulties occur, do not hesitate to call our office any time. In case of an emergency call 911.
