Restore Crown After Dental Implant Surgery

After dental implant surgery, it is recommended that you take at easy for 24-48 hours.  You may need to apply an ice pack to your face for 1-2 hours following surgery.  Continue taking the antibiotics 4 times a day.  No smoking, spitting or rinsing for the first 24 hrs  following surgery.  After the first 24 hours has elapsed, rinse with warm water and salt (approx. 1 tsp. salt per 8oz. water).   Do this as often as you can (4-6 times a day) for the next 2 weeks.  You may brush your teeth normally, just use caution when you are next to the surgical site.  For single implants, chew on the opposite side for 7-14 days. For multiple implants, follow a soft  nutritious diet until you are examined again.  Avoid hard crusty foods, as well as food with seeds.
