After Placement Of Dental Implants

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 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.
