  1. Thoroughly brush your teeth using a toothbrush and floss.
  2. Take off the syringe barrel. Place a small amount of the whitening gel into the kappa, one whitening gel syringe should be enough for the upper and lower teeth whitening procedure. Always keep the syringe barrel closed.
  3. Place the kappa on your teeth respectfully, lower or upper. Try not to squeeze it.
  4. If you feel that the whitening gel is getting on your gums or your palate, remove it by your toothbrush or your finger.
  5. Wear your kappas at least for 2hours during the day or throughout the night, your denstist will give you recommendations.
  6. While wearing your kappas do not eat, drink or smoke.
  7. After using the kappas, wash it with a toothbrush and warm water, dry it and keep it in the special box. Brush your teeth carefully not leaving any whitening gel on your teeth.

Please do not use an excessive amount of the whitening gel- it will not fasten the results. Do avoid sour foods and drinks ( coke, citrus fruit drinks ) as it may increase the sensitivity. We would suggest avoiding coffee, tea, red wine and smoking - this will delay getting the results you wish. You should see results within 4-7days. Depending on each case personally- it may take even months for the treatment to be completed, without any damage to your teeth structure.

Keep the whitening gel in the fridge however not the freezer. Keep it away from heat and direct sunlight.

  • Bleeding. It is natural to bleed after a tooth extraction- 30min after the extraction, put light pressure and bite on the cotton tampon the dentist/ surgeon places in your mouth. If the bleeding does not stop, after the dentist/ surgeon changes the cotton tampon- hold it for another 20minutes. If needed- repeat it.
  • Smoking and alcohol After a tooth extraction do not smoke for at least 4-5hours, it damages the healing of the wound. Do not use any alcohol for 24hours after the procedure.
  • Rinsing. Do not rinse your teeth for the first 24hours after the procedure. You may drink warm drinks however no rinsing and no spitting as you may remove a blood clot from the wound. Few days later you may rinse with disinfecable solution, especially after eating.
  • Swelling. For less swelling, we recommend to use an ice bag wrapped into a towel, place it on the cheek next to the tooth which was extracted. You should be doing this for 30min in 30min intervals, making breaks for 1-2hours.
  • Pain management. For mild to medium strength pain- do not use painkillers which have blood thinners. If it was a complicated surgery- use the painkillers prescribed by your dentist/ surgeon.
  • Food. We recommend light, soft and warm food for the first 24hours, chew your food with the untreated side.
  • Stitches. If the wound was stitched up with soluble threads- you will not need further dentist appointment. If regular threads were used- you will need to see your dentist / surgeon in a week to remove it.
  • Medication. If there were any medication prescribed- use it only in the recommended doses.
  • Hygiene. The correct oral hygiene will accelerate the healing. Be careful for the first days not to damage the wound, brush your teeth carefully, rinse.

You may feel short-term discomfort after having a dental implant procedure, there might be soft surrounding tissue swelling, thawing, bruising.

For less swelling, we recommend placing ice bag wrapped into a towel on the cheek next to the tooth procedure you had. You should do it for 15min with 10min break, during the first two days- 5-10 times a day.

You may eat after the painkillers wear off. For the first 24hours we recommend light, soft and warm food. Chew your food with the untreated side of the mouth. Do not rinse your mouth for the first 24hours after the surgery, do not touch the wound with your fingers or your tongue. After the 24hours start rinsing carefully with salt solution ( 1 tea spoon of salt in a glass of warm heated water ). It is recommended to rinse 4-10 times a day, for 5-9days. Use the prescribed medication. Avoid getting cold, avoid physical exertion, do not do sports, do not sunbathe for 48hours after the surgery.

If you have a temporary prosthetic tooth for the implant- it must be fixed by your dentist.

Do not smoke for at least 4-5hours after the surgery, it damages the healing of the wound. Do not drink alcohol the whole time antibiotics have been prescribed ( 5-7 days ).

If the wound was stitched up with soluble threads, it will dissolve on it’s own. However if you feel discomfort- it may be removed after 10days by your dentist. If the threads are not dissolvable- it will have to be removed by your dentist after 10days.

The proper oral hygiene will accelerate healing and will decrease the risk of complications. During the first days after the procedure be very careful to not damage the wound or the stitching. Brush the teeth next to the implant softly, rinse more often. If the metal part of the implant is visible after the surgery, it must be cleaned thoroughly. For the care of the implant, you should use special brushes.

It is very important to have a follow up appointment with your dentist after a week of the surgery.
