Post Operative Instructions for Healing Abutments in Implants
After Dr. Schultz places your healing abutment, this implant will require six weeks of healing before you can get it restored with a crown. There may be several sutures around the implant that will fall out in 5-7 days.
- Use caution brushing for the first two days. After day two, resume normal brushing and brush implant. It is OK to brush the sutures. It will not hurt them.
- A soft diet is required for the first several days following surgery. You may start chewing on your implant.
- Prescriptions are not usually necessary.
- Notify Dr. Schultz if there is extreme bleeding, swelling, redness, and pain.
