Implant Post-Operation Instructions

How to manage your dental health after receiving implants


If you bleed, gently bite on the gauze provided, for 15 minutes. If the site does not stop bleeding after 20 minutes and you are concerned, please call the practice.


You may swell more than you think, this is normal. Place ice pack provided on the area as soon as possible.


Sutures will be in place, avoid disturbing these with your tongue. Do not lift your lips or play with the area.


Rinse with Corsodyl mouthwash twice a day after 24 hours. Hot salt water rinses are also good to help with healing.


Avoid hot foods or drinks until the anaesthetic wears off, to avoid burning/scalding your mouth. Then after soft diet for 10 days is advised.

Pain relief

It is normal to feel some discomfort but simple pain relief – ibuprofen and paracetamol should be enough to manage this.


Do continue with your regular cleaning routine taking extra care around the surgical site where the implant has been placed.

Leave out any dentures unless otherwise instructed.

Return in 10 – 14 days for a review and maybe to have sutures removed.

If you have any concerns or queries, please call the practice.
