After implant placement you will be asked to rinse with an antibacterial mouth rinse for 1 week and take a course of antibiotics. You may wish to take analgesics but many patients find this is not necessary. A review appointment will be arranged for 2 weeks after implant placement to ensure satisfactory healing and to remove any sutures that have not resorbed away. Dr Black is always available for advice during this time.
Following the restoration being attached to the implant, Dr Black will advise you about the best ways to keep the area clean and our hygienist will reinforce this at future appointments. Implants will last a long time if looked after just like our natural teeth.
