Post-operative care after dental implant surgery
Post-dental implant surgery, it is vital for patients to take care of the area in the mouth surrounding the new implant. In the first month, the implant is still getting accustomed to the bone and tissues. So, the care routine will be more involved during this stage. Most importantly, to help avoid any contamination or irritation, do not cause stress to the wound in the initial period following the surgery. Below mentioned are a few instructions to keep in mind post a dental implant surgery:
How to deal with the pain
Hours after your dental implant procedure, the anesthetic will slowly wear off. You should begin taking your prescribed medication before this happens. Avoid any over-the-counter medication, as the patient can potentially make the pain and issue much worse.
Follow a prescribed diet
Wearing night guard or prosthetics
Avoid wearing partial dentures, flippers, full dentures, or even night guards for the first ten days after the surgery. If there are any special circumstances, our dentist will discuss them with you during your consultation.
