What should I look after surgery?

In the early weeks, when brushing your teeth, avoid the area operated on, and use an antibacterial mouthwash. You can then use a toothbrush with soft bristles special area around the wound.
Avoid coffee, alcohol and cigarettes for 2-3 days after surgery. This reduces the risk of post-operative bleeding and improves wound healing.
Smoking and inadequate oral hygiene can have a significant negative impact on the outcome of therapy.
It is essential to show up by your dentist for checkups even if the recovery proceeds without problems.
