Recommendations of the doctor after surgery, dental implantation, bone grafting.
Dental implantation, and especially bone plastic surgery, is a complex multi-step process that requires a qualitative attitude not only from the doctor performing the operation, but also from the patient himself. In order to reduce the risk of complications, it is necessary to strictly follow the prescriptions of the doctor, including those relating to the features of hygienic oral care in the postoperative period.
After surgery for the installation of dental implants, bone grafting, saliva can be pink in color due to secret fluid released from the wound. This does not mean that bleeding has opened: after surgery, bleeding from a wound can be within a few hours.
At home, apply a cold compress (gel bag) to your cheek for 10-15 minutes and change it every 1.5-2 hours during the day. The cold will help reduce the risk of a pronounced swelling of the soft tissues of the face, but it will not completely remove this risk. The purpose of a cold compress is to narrow the vessels and slow down blood circulation, which in turn prevents the occurrence of bleeding. The day after the operation on the face, a slight swelling may occur, and in some cases hematoma. The appearance of a small swelling is normal. The swelling may become more within 2-3 days after the operation, on the 4-5 day swelling begins to subside. In the process of convalescence, the hematoma also changes color from gray-blue to yellow. After 7-10 days the hematoma resolves.
Rinse your mouth gently as the wound is fresh.
Intensive rinsing can cause bleeding. If there are postoperative wounds in the oral cavity, then hygiene is difficult, food particles get into the wound, therefore, after each meal, the mouth must be rinsed. Use a special solution for rinsing (0.02% chlorhexidine solution or 0.01% Miramistan solution). The solution should be at room temperature.
Avoid smoking for at least 24 hours after surgery, since smoking interferes with blood clotting at the wound site (as smoking expands the capillaries of the mucous membrane) and interferes with recovery. If it is impossible to quit smoking, try not to drag too much, as a strong pull of air into the mouth creates a negative pressure in the mouth, which can trigger bleeding.
Avoid visiting the bath and hot bath, as in the hot bath or bath vessels expand, which can cause bleeding.
Avoid hot foods. Food should be warm or / and chilled, as well as soft (jelly, juice, mashed soups, dairy products). The use of a cocktail straw is not recommended, since during aspiration negative pressure of the oral cavity is formed, which interferes with blood clotting.
Use energy-rich foods in the first days after surgery.
Opening the mouth after surgery is often difficult, as the wound in the mouth is painful and the mucous membrane is swollen.
Brush your teeth gently, but carefully. Use a soft toothbrush and other available means (dental floss or interdental brushes). During the recovery period, the wound cannot be rubbed with a brush, it is necessary to rinse it carefully and carefully.
Avoid physical exertion on the day of surgery, as pressure may rise, which may cause bleeding.
Avoid flights for 1-1,5 months.
For pain during the first days, use painkillers recommended by your doctor.
