First and foremost, in no case should you rinse your mouth so as not to disrupt the formation of a blood clot in the hole, which will later become the basis for the formation of bone tissue in the area of ​​removal. The first few days you need to take care of yourself and take only soft and non-hot food, chewing it on the other side. 2-3 days after removal, you need to gently brush your teeth, bypassing the hole; sometimes we recommend to patients to use medicinal pastes with chlorhexidine (such as Curasept) after removal - but only for a few days, no more, so as not to disturb the microflora of the oral cavity.
