Wound Care and Hygiene

It is essential that you maintain exceptional oral hygiene using a combination of Savacol mouthwash, diluted 1 in 10 with warm to hot water, in addition to your regular tooth brushing. You should begin your mouthwashes and tooth brushing the day after surgery, and aim to use at least 5-6 mouthwashes per day.

Wisdom may provide you with a Broxojet to assist with oral hygiene. While gentle tooth brushing around the wounds may cause minor bleeding, it is still vitally important to remove food debris and plaque from the area. If food and plaque are allowed to accumulate around the wounds there is a high chance the implants may become infected or lost.
