What You Should Know Regarding the Dental Implant Recovery Process

What You Should Know Regarding the Dental Implant Recovery ProcessLosing teeth is rarely an enjoyable event. Perhaps in youth, losing a tooth indicated a rite of passage and even followed up with a little spending cash. As lucrative as tooth loss may be for some young children, tooth loss marks an uncomfortable reality of adulthood. Fortunately, we can replace your teeth with sturdy implants. Those implants involve intricate procedures, and as such, require patience during recovery.

Understanding the Dental Implant Recovery Process

The recovery, first and foremost, will improve significantly and quickly with proper hygiene and cleaning. The pain experienced from implants is significantly less than is commonly imagined. Unlike wisdom tooth removal, incisions are small, and instead of pulling teeth out, teeth are being replaced. Still, pain is a common reality, but ibuprofen or over-the-counter pain relief will go a long way during your recovery.

Knowing what you can do and eat after a dental implant may seem confusing at first, but it is easy to follow in actuality. Since a tooth is being implanted, the body needs time to adjust. For the first day, it is important to avoid drinking through a straw or to eat anything that will be tough while chewing. Think of your favorite soft foods. Pastas, eggs, soft fruits, and yogurts, and oatmeal will all be your friend. Also, avoid eating very hot food, as the mouth will be sensitive to heat. Finally, move on to firmer foods after a few days, ensuring that you let pain and comfort be the guides.

A good guide for recovery is being very careful for the first three days, and then letting your comfort lead. The recovery process is rather quick, and taking care of the new implants is the same as taking care of any tooth. Brushing and flossing will ensure a healthy smile. If you have any questions regarding implants, please feel confident contacting our office today.
