Note: The stoma should be cleaned twice a day to prevent infections.
Stoma care starts from the first day after surgery. The stoma can still bleed in the first 3-7 days, which is why the stoma must be carefully rinsed with the shower head. If the stoma continues to bleed; rinse with cold water and then apply a number of split gauzes, press firmly and rest (put the stump high). In case of persistent problems, contact the doctor.
Cleaning the stoma:

Rinse the stoma with an oral irrigator (eg Braun Oral B, Oxyjet or the Panasonic Dentacare Oral Irrigator EW 1211). The Oxyjet has a large water reservoir and different water jet settings. This device costs about €70 - €100 and can be ordered online.

Massage the skin and muscles while rinsing and make sure there are no adhesions between the soft tissues (skin and muscles) and the implant
