PMDC Dental Tooth Implant Surgery Recovery Tips

Tuesday, September 26, 2017 05:05 PM

It is possible that you may have a tooth implant procedure done at PMDC Dental, Should you undergo such surgery, there will be specific things you need to do after the surgery to help in your recovery. In particular, you will be trying to avoid having your new implant become dislodged.


You will want to continue keeping your teeth clean after the implant surgery, but you will also want to avoid brushing the implanted tooth itself for the first few days. Otherwise, you risk dislodging the implant. Instead, you should rely on any antibiotics you were given after the surgery and rinsing with saltwater to keep the area of the implant clean. It is typically best to wait 24 hours before using antibiotics, but that will ultimately be up to you and your dentist to decide.


As far as foods you eat, a soft food diet is best for the first few days after the implant surgery. Again, this is to reduce the risk of the implant becoming dislodged. Hard and crunchy food risk dislodging the implant, especially if you are eating hard food you need to bite into, such as an apple. Cut an apple into slices before eating it. Otherwise, good foods to eat include bread, bananas, noodles, and soft snacks. After the implanted area has had time to heal, you should be able to resume eating like normal, though again you should consult with your dentist first.


Using any pain medication prescribed by your dentist can help with any pain you may be feeling after the implant surgery. In addition, placing an ice pack on your face around the area where the implant surgery took place can help reduce any swelling that may occur. It is especially important to use the ice pack during the first 48 hours after the surgery, when the most severe swelling is most likely to occur.


If you wear any prosthesis or night dental guards, such as a retainer, dentures, or flippers, you should not wear them for at least the first 10 days after the surgery. Once again, this is to reduce the risk of dislodging, as these tools run the risk of dislodging your implant if used before the area is fully healed.
