Patient information

Here you will find information about the instructions you must follow after the different procedures. If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.

– Cleaning tartar

After cleaning the tartar, your dentist will, if necessary, prescribe certain medications. Don’t miss taking them as prescribed. If a mouthwash is prescribed, please use it on the same day, following the instructions given by your dentist. Don’t worry if your gums bleed a little during cleaning, this will stop within a week. In the evening, mouthwash should be the last thing you use before going to bed. That way its effect will last long after you’ve fallen asleep.

– Restorations (fillings)

If your cavity is deep, some sensitivity from cold and heat may appear after the filling is done. It will go away in a few days. If the filling is from photopolymer you can eat immediately. If a temporary filling is placed, do not eat for an hour.
If you feel the filling is not comfortable or something scratches you, if there is pain when chewing on this tooth, contact your dentist immediately.

– Root canal treatment

It is normal to experience discomfort, itching and even slight pain in the root area of the tooth after root canal treatment. These complaints should go away in a day or two. Do not bite on it, do not purposefully chew hard foods on it, do not crack nuts with it in the next 2-3 days. If there is pain after the second day, don’t be a hero – contact us.

Tooth extraction

After each tooth removal, your dentist gives instructions and guidance. However, after this type of manipulation, patients do not pay much attention to what the doctor is saying to them, so we will repeat everything here:
Keep the gauze in place for 20 minutes to stop the bleeding. If it still bleeds after you remove it, take another piece of gauze or a clean tissue and squeeze for about 30 minutes. If still bleeding contact us. On the day of the extraction, you can only have liquid and cold foods – yoghurt, ice cream, milk shakes, beer.
Nothing hard or warm should enter the mouth!
Refrain from smoking. If this is impossible, place the cigarette in the opposite corner of the mouth and inhale gently and carefully. In the next few days, you can take soft and warm foods – soups, soft (homemade) pie. Clean thoroughly everywhere, and be careful around the wound – hygiene is extremely important! If necessary, take painkillers – Ibuprofen. Dexofen, Analgin, Aulin… (NO medications containing Acetylsalicylic acid – Aspirin, Acetizal).

Crowns and bridges

After preparing the teeth for a crown or bridge, a temporary plastic construction (crown or bridge) is placed. It is fixed with temporary dental cement so that it can be easily removed. If this construction becomes detached or breaks, save it and contact us. In rare cases, a single crown can be swallowed. You should not worry, it does not pose a danger to your digestive tract. After your dentist places the temporary construction, do not eat for 2 hours. Gum sensitivity from hot and cold foods and drinks is possible, it will fade away after a few days.

After placement of the permanent construction, do not eat for 2 hours. In the next 24 hours, avoid solid foods until it is completely fixed.


Slight swelling, bleeding and mild pain are normal after implant surgery. Apply cold compresses on the side of the operation to reduce swelling. Keep the compress on for 10 minutes, then remove it for another 10, and put it on again. Do not chew on the side of the implant. If a temporary construction (crown or bridge) is placed on the implants, the same rule applies – do not overload it.

Switch to liquid foods (cream soups, yogurt) for a few days. Do not take foods and liquids with extreme temperatures. Clean the teeth perfectly with a brush and toothpaste, avoiding the implants on the first day. Then just be gentle around them.

Prosthetic teeth (dentures)

With your new dentures, slight discomfort and the appearance of sores under them are normal. We will see each other frequently until the soft tissues form a bed around the dentures and they will become more comfortable. Often patients have difficulty speaking, especially if these are their first dentures. In such a case, reading a newspaper out loud works wonders. In just a few days, the tongue and cheeks will get used to them. All that is required of you is patience and motivation. If you manage to sleep with the dentures, you will get used to them much faster. You have to clean them with a soft brush and paste, morning and evening, outside the mouth. Don’t forget to brush your teeth too ( if the dentures are partial ). Make sure you keep them always wet – either in the mouth or in a glass of water (if you can’t fall asleep with them on). Otherwise, the plastic ages extremely quickly.
