Care for Bone Graft

Care For Bone Graft
1. BLEEDING- Some bleeding following a bone graft procedure is possible. If persistent, place a sterile gauze pad firmly over the place of extraction and bite down. Keep steady firm pressure for 30 minutes. Repeat if necessary.
2. DO NOT RINSE or use a mouthwash for at least 48 hours. After 48 hours, rinsing with warm salt water (1tsp. salt in 1 cup of water)every 3-4 hours is recommended. The use of commercial mouth washes during healing is not
recommended.
3. CONTROL OF SWELLING. Gently apply ice packs to area for period of 20 minutes on and 20 minutes off. This procedure should continue for the first 24 hours only.
4. DISCOMFORT. Following dental surgery it is normal to experience some discomfort. If medication has been given or prescribed, take as instructed.
5. AVOID all excessive activity, don’t pick at bone graft site, don’t consume liquids through a straw, no carbonated or alcoholic beverages, avoid citrus and NO SMOKING for 48 to 72 hours.
6. THE TOOTHBRUSH may be carefully used in the area of the mouth not involved by the surgical procedures. A clean mouth heals faster.
7. EATING a light diet is advisable during the first 24 hours. If you find that eating your regular diet is too difficult, you may supplement liquids such as Carnation Instant breakfast.
8. BONY EDGES. During healing, sharp fragments of bone may work up through the gum. If this occurs please call our office for an appointment.
9. ALLERGIC REACTIONS. For generalized rash, itching, etc., call our office immediately.
10. DO NOT HESITATE to call if you have any questions.

Information Concerning An Immediate Denture

Information Concerning An Immediate Denture
Biting pressure on the denture will promote clotting and will decrease the initial flow of blood. Slight bleeding can last up to 2-3 days.
Use an ice compress on affected side for 20 minutes on and 20 minutes off for the first 36 hours.
Limit your diet to soft nurturing foods and plenty of fluids the first week.
Don’t take the dentures out today, but rinse your mouth with warm salt water before going to bed. (1 tsp. salt in 1 cup warm water)
Starting tomorrow, carefully remove the denture twice a day and clean with a toothbrush and a low abrasive  toothpaste or denture cleanser. Rinse your mouth with warm salt water.
Sleep with the denture in your mouth for one week unless otherwise instructed. Then you should take it out when sleeping in order to relax the gum tissues.
Due to the gum shrinkage that occurs within the first 6 months, you may go through periods of a loose fitting  denture. A temporary liner will be inserted as needed. Denture adhesives can be used during this period also. Following the gum shrinkage period (approximately 6 months) a more permanent reline will be placed.
You may experience sore spots caused by the denture being applied to the healing gum tissues. We will adjust the denture as these problems occur.

Post Operative Dental Implant Instructions

Post Operative Implant Instructions
The outcome of this treatment depends largely on the part you play in the following instructions. At Comprehensive Dentistry we stand behind our work. However, we need your help. We cannot control the conditions in which the
implants are subject to when outside of our office. Therefore, there are a few requirements that must be followed.
The next 3-6 months following the placement of the implant is the most critical phase of healing process, when the implant is becoming stabilized. It is important that this take place without the implants being subjected to any strain.
You should therefore, be extremely careful to maintain a suitable nutritious diet at all times during the healing period. Foods that contain tomatoes, onions, pepper or spices may be irritating and should be avoided. Do not bite down or chew on the implant site as it could cause the bone not to integrate to the  implant. Below are some examples of acceptable foods:
Cooked cereals such as oatmeal, cream of wheat
Well mashed fruits, apple sauce, yogurt
Broth, bouillon, soups and stews
Ground Beef, soft broiled
Baked or broiled fish, broiled chicken (finely chopped)
Potatoes (baked, broiled or whipped)
Asparagus, peas, carrots, lima beans, string beans
Noodles, macaroni and cheese, cottage cheese
Canned, cooked or stewed fruits and vegetables, and fresh vegetable juice
Milkshakes, ice cream, puddings, Jell-O and custards
A blender may be helpful in processing foods
IT IS VERY IMPORTANT THAT YOU MAINTAIN GOOD ORAL HYGIENE
Brush after every meal and before bedtime
Floss at least once a day
Follow any special instructions given to you by our office
Careful use of a waterpick may help maintain hygiene
Do not rinse or spit for the first 24-48 hours as directed
Do not smoke (ever) or at least 48-72 hours
Use a warm salt water rinse three to four times a day for the first week
A PROFESSIONAL DENTAL CLEANING IS RECOMMEDED EVERY THREE
MONTHS UNTIL OTHERWISE NOTIFIED BY THE DOCTOR.

ANY OF THE FOLLOWING:
