Getting dental implants is one of the best decisions you can make for your smile, and for your oral health. The implants will successfully restore the healthy use and aesthetics of your smile, giving you the confidence to enjoy a better quality of life even after losing your natural teeth. You can say goodbye to your toothless condition, along with all of the problems that are associated with missing teeth.
Upon completion of the implant placement, you will need to follow a few steps to ensure that you will have a faster, easier, and more comfortable recovery period from the procedure. It is best to take it easy for a few days immediately following the implant treatment, to give your body the rest it needs to recover from the surgery. Make sure that you will engage only in light physical activities – avoid strenuous activities that can contribute to bleeding of the surgical site. Take this time to relax your body and mind to help with overall healing from the implant placement.
When you clean your mouth, do so gently. Do not gargle vigorously, as doing so may disturb the surgical site and hinder the complete healing. Swish a saltwater rinse gently to clean the inside of your mouth. Bleeding can be expected for the first few days following the surgery, but do not hesitate to get in touch with your Dental Implant Group dentist if the bleeding becomes uncontrollable. You can use a cold pack placed on the general area to ease swelling and discomfort.
