This works pretty well to reduce swelling. However, in the following days, you will use warm water to help dissolve the blood.
Doctors will also prescribe analgesics, anti-inflammatory. Therefore, you should follow the prescribed medication so that the wound heals quickly. You can use a mouthwash and toothpaste that contains Chlohexidine to help kill bacteria and help heal quickly. You can also use physiological saline to rinse your mouth in the morning.
On the first day after the transplant, should not eat hard or tough food, should use soft foods.
You note, because dental implants will give you a strange feeling in the mouth, so the tongue habit will often touch the transplant site. So change this habit, do not push the tongue or use your hand to the treatment area.
