How Long Do I Have to Rinse my Mouth with Salt Water After Dental Implant Surgery? When Can I Start Using Mouthwash?

I am 28years old and I had dental implant surgery yesterday. I don't smoke or drink alcohol. I want to know essential vitamins and minerals I should to speed up the healing process and also osseointegration.

Saline rinses

Salt water (saline) is a really good way to speed up healing.  Use it until there is no more gum soreness, usually about 5-10 days.  Most mouthwashes contain alcohol which might sting if you use it too soon

Salt Water Rinse

It has now been 2 days since your treatment, you should be all set and can stop using the rinses.
