After Dental Implant Surgery

In addition to the after-care instructions for tooth removal, the following special instructions apply for dental implant surgery.

  • If there are healing abutments sticking out of the gums, you may start gently brushing them 7 days after the surgery.
  • If you have a denture or partial denture that will be worn over the surgical site, please discuss with the doctor regarding your unique circumstance. Depending on your situation, you may be advised not to wear your prosthesis for a certain period of time after the surgery.
