Tips To Help Your Dental Implants Heal Properly

Posted on 9/21/2021 by Dr. Boustany
Dental implants come in handy, especially when you have lost a tooth. While the procedure of getting a dental implant is short and straightforward, the healing process is crucial in determining the success of the entire procedure. Therefore, if you are thinking of getting dental implants, it is important to know that recovery isn't instant. It is a process that needs patience and commitment, requiring you not to rush into anything that would jeopardize it. Here are several things you can do to help your dental implants heal properly. Be Careful With What You Eat One way you can help your new dental implants heal properly is to treat them gently for the first few weeks. This means that you should be careful with what you eat or drink. You shouldn't stick to your normal diet during this period. If you had moderate surgery with only a couple of implants, you should eat soft foods for the first four weeks. However, if you had a more complicated surgery, you should maintain a soft diet for up to six weeks. Avoid Smoking Smoking significantly increases the risk of dental implant failure. Therefore, you should avoid smoking if you want your dental implants to heal properly. Smoking is dangerous because it negatively affects your mouth hygiene and your overall health. Besides, smoking affects the natural healing process of your mouth, increasing the risk of infection. For that reason, you should avoid smoking for at least five weeks after getting your dental implants. Regular Oral Hygiene Taking good care of your dental implants will also speed up the recovery process. One way to do so is by regular brushing. Keep in mind that your wounds are still fresh and brushing aggressively can worsen the situation; therefore, be soft and gentle when brushing.
