Avoid alcohol for two weeks after the operation as this can impair healing.
The day after surgery (not less than 24 hours) commence warm salt rinses (1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon of salt in a cup of warm water) two or three times a day. Each rinse should be held against the affected area so that the warm salty water cools over it and is held there until the heat is gone. Then repeat until the cup is finished. This should last about ten minutes each time.
It is essential to avoid pressure on the implants for two weeks after they have been placed. This allows better initial stability of the implants. If you have a denture, this will have been adjusted carefully to avoid excessive pressures on the implants.
After each meal, gently rinse your mouth with warm water.
Do not brush the area where the implants have been placed for one week. Then brush the area with a soft toothbrush that has been softened further by running under hot water and corsodyl gel (massage the area very gently).
Try not to explore the area with your tongue as this may loosen the stitches, and this can also place pressure on the implants.
In regard to diet, any food may be eaten provided it is soft. This applies to the first week. Boiled fish, scrambled eggs, pasta, rice etc. are suitable, though any meal may be mashed or passed through a blender to render it soft.
Continue the vitamin supplement (if prescribed) and ensure you have a balanced diet, high in calcium.

Having suffered poor dentistry for years, I had reached the end of my tether in February this year. I researched on line and was pleased to find Perfect Smile studios' website. After the first consultation I was so impressed I decided to have all the treatment recommended. I can honestly say Dr Doshi and his team are true professionals and I would not hesitate to recommend them. I really have the perfect smile.

Having researched every aspect of the Perfect Smile Studios website, I was left in no doubt that I would be in capable hands.
I started the process back in January and after my first consultation, I decided to go all out and undergo all treatment that was recommended. I was confident in what I saw, and paid for my treatment up front. Every visit to the studio, I was always greeted by the staff in a warm friendly manner which quickly put me at my ease, I knew I was in the hands of a professional dedicated team. I couldn't' fail to be impressed by the level of expertise and hard work they all applied to their tasks.
Rahul Doshi is my idea of a true professional, an artist, a perfectionist. You can put total trust in him knowing that he will come up with the perfect smile that's right for you. I cannot express enough how happy I am to have completed my treatment and have a great smile looking back at me in the mirror, and the best part is you get to carry it around with you all the time.
Thanks to everyone at the Perfect Smile Studio, you are brilliant and I will recommend you at every opportunity I get.
