10 Best Healing tips after getting Dental Implants

If you’re considering getting dental implants, you’ve probably heard that the recovery process can be quite long and sometimes painful. But don’t worry — with proper care and attention, the healing process can be relatively smooth.

To help you out, we’ve put together a list of 10 tips for healing after getting dental implants.

1. Take Your Medication:

Your dentist will likely prescribe or recommend medications to help with pain and swelling. Be sure to take these as directed and follow any instructions your dentist gives you.

2. Be Gentle When Brushing:

When brushing your teeth, be sure to use gentle strokes and use a soft-bristled toothbrush. Avoid hard, vigorous brushing that could irritate the implant site.

3. Avoid Chewing on the Implant Site:

Avoid putting pressure on your implant site by avoiding foods that need to be chewed, like steak or hard candy. Stick to softer foods like mashed potatoes, yogurt, and soup.

4. Use an Oral Rinse:

Using an oral rinse designed for post-operative dental care can help reduce swelling and promote healing.

5. Avoid Tobacco Products:

Smoking or using any other type of tobacco product can slow down the healing process and increase the chances of implant failure.

6. Get Plenty of Rest:

Getting enough rest is key for your body’s natural healing processes. Try to get 8 hours of sleep each night.

7. Stay Hydrated:

Drinking plenty of water can help keep your mouth clean, reduce swelling, and promote healing.

8. Use Ice Packs:

Using ice packs on the outside of your cheek can help reduce swelling and minimize discomfort.

9. Avoid Alcohol and Caffeine:

Alcohol and caffeine can increase swelling, so it’s best to avoid them while your implant site is healing.

10. Visit Your Dentist Regularly:

It’s important to visit your dentist regularly for follow-up appointments to ensure that your implant is healing properly.

Following these tips can help ensure that your implant heals properly and you’re on your way to a beautiful smile. We hope you find them helpful!

I been coming to Dental Arts for a few years and was a skeptical about returning since my regular hygienist had moved on but my experience was super. I was knowledge right of way as I entered the office, making me feel welcomed. Jannette was down to earth , I feel I like knew her already. She did a fantastic job with the cleaning. The entire team was fantastic.

I can't quite put into words how satisfied I am with my service care at Dental Arts of Pelham. The multi-level excellence demonstrated at this office is unmatched. From the warmth and level of expertise at the front desk to my dental assessment and services, I was very pleased all the way through. Noteworthy to mention is Marline's impeccable service. She was reassuring and knowledgable about my insurance and provided me the ease I needed at the end of my visit. 10/10 recommend this office to anyone who is looking!
