Rules for Recovering after a Dental Implant

To replace a missing tooth, you are typically offered the tooth replacement options of dentures, a bridge, or dental implants. The best by far is a dental implant, but the way to ensure a successful treatment is to know the right way to recover.

Procedure Selection

Once you’ve decided on a dental implant as your tooth replacement procedure, the next step is determining which placement process is best. Today, there are several different procedures and the selection is determined by the complexity of your case, the type of implant used, and dental implant costs. More complicated cases require a three-part process that spans the surgical treatment over a few months to allow time for healing. But simpler cases may be eligible for same day dental implants, which offer greater convenience and shorter recovery time. Keep in mind that same day dental implants tend to cost more than the long-term option, but many find that their immediate results are worth the higher dental implant costs.

Recovery Tips

The best way to ensure a proper recovery is to follow all instructions provided by your dentist. Usually these include:

  • Practice good dental hygiene habits to protect the surgical site from decay and infection.
  • Consume only liquids and very soft foods for the first few days after surgery.
  • Introduce firmer foods as your healing progresses.
  • Soothe any discomfort with the recommended pain relievers.
  • Avoid strenuous activities for a few days after treatment.
  • Go to follow-up dental appointments as instructed.
  • Call your dentist immediately with any questions or concerns.

Aftercare Basics

Another reason why dental implants are so popular is because their success rate averages 95 percent. To make sure you experience similar success, follow these simple aftercare tips:

  1. Avoid harmful dental habits, such as grinding teeth, chewing on ice, and using teeth as household tools.
  2. Maintain good oral hygiene, including twice-daily brushing and flossing every day, to keep dental implants free from food and debris.
  3. See your dentist for regular check-ups and cleanings, as well as to detect any problems at their earliest stage.
