After Placement Of Dental Implants in Gaithersburg, Silver Spring and Frederick, MD
Do not disturb the wound. Avoid rinsing, spitting, or touching the wound on the day of surgery. There may be a metal healing abutment protruding through the gingival (gum) tissue. This is not the exposure of the implant but rather a titanium “cap” designed to allow proper healing of the gum tissue.
For all other instructions, please see post-surgical instructions.
