When should I be concerned?
Most surgery patients are unfamiliar with what normal post-operative recovery is and what is unusual. Here are a few things to look for:
Additional Instructions following surgery:
DO NOT USE a Sonicare around your implants until your surgeon gives you authorization. Usually this will be 4 to 6 months.
DO NOT USE a waterpik or electric flossing device.
Be aware of any other device or mechanism that can introduce vibrations! These devices can cause implant integration issues!
Following these instructions will assist you, but if you have questions about your progress, please call the office. It is our desire that your recovery be as smooth and pleasant as possible. Calling during office hours will allow a faster response; however, a 24-hour answering service is available for after hour’s contact with the doctor. If you anticipate needing more prescription pain medication before the weekend, please call the office on Friday before 2:00 pm.
