I am having jaw implants placed in a little over a month, and I am concerned about the possibility of infection and subsequent removal of the implants. I have read that salt water flushes, general oral hygiene after meals, and other rinses such as Peridex and Biotene can be helpful in infection prevention. Do you have any other recommendations? Additionally, what are good practices for minimizing swelling?
