DENTAL IMPLANT SURGERY POST-OP CARE
   

• It is important to control the bleeding and to gently compress the surgical site. Leave gauze in for
  2-4 hours.

• Apply ice packs for 2-4 hours.

• Do not brush the surgical site. Apply the chlorhexidine solution to surgical area twice daily with cotton-
  tipped applicator.

• Eat soft food and chew in the non-surgical areas.

• Swelling is to be expected. Some patients will bruise easily. Use ice packs as much as possible for the
  first two days.

• Refrain from smoking while the surgical site is healing.
