Dental implant is the most modern, practical and effective replacement solution for a missing tooth.
The insertion of the dental implant involves surgical intervention that may result in a series of natural, non-mandatory, but often occurring manifestations. Here’s what they are:
- mild to moderate pain at the intervention site level;
- small bleeding;
- bruises and small swelling in the area of the face, in the area where it occurred;
- the impossibility of opening the mouth wide, etc.
6 Important Reminders for Quick Recovery After Dental Implant:
- Administer medications prescribed by your doctor!
The opinions about drug treatments are shared and there will always be different positions, especially when it comes to dental treatments. There is a whole series of factors that influence the quality of the medications and their interaction with the human body, but one thing is certain: there are strict guidelines for the administration of some preparations.
If in other cases a patient could choose whether or not to use the indicated medication, when talking about dental-alveolar surgery (and dental implants specifically refer to this category), it is strictly necessary to follow the dentist‘s instructions. He will know for sure what active substances, doses and administration regimen is needed to speed up your recovery.
- Apply cold compresses to the implantation area after surgery!
Physical methods of lowering inflammation are extremely effective in meeting the conditions of surgery. If the post-operative area is in good condition, some helpful procedures will quickly eliminate the discomfort and speed up the regeneration of soft tissues (gums) and the formation of bone tissue around the implant.
- Rinse the oral cavity with antiseptics slightly for a soothing and antibacterial effect!
Oral hygiene has an enormous role in the post-operative period. Because we are talking about a lesion of mucous membranes, it is absolutely necessary to avoid the formation of an environment conducive to the development of bacteria. And because you probably will not be able to use it very intensely and a few times a day toothbrush, you can sanitize the oral cavity by rinsing it with oral antiseptic solutions.
You can search in pharmacies drug solutions based on benzoxonium chloride, potassium permanganate, you can prepare them by diluting in boiling water tincture of iodine or hydrogen peroxide or you can use for this purpose the herbal teas with anti-inflammatory effect: chamomile is the perfect example.
- Food for the next approximately 7-10 days should be semi-liquid!
Obviously, the less we touch the post-operative area, the faster it is “catching” any dental implant. Restoring efficiency as a gum barrier takes about a week, but the results are individual. The recommendations of dentists from the private clinic in Chisinau Imperial Dent are a sparing regimen for the gums for about 10 days after implant insertion. You can opt for cooked and pasty dishes, cream soups or porridge with light consistency. Avoid eating harsh or dried foods, as well as fruits that have to be “crinkled”.
- Oral hygiene resumes two days after surgery, avoiding touching the operating area and using only a soft brush and toothpaste.
Although dentists usually insist on a thorough dental cleaning procedure, post-oral hygiene will be complemented by the use of oral antiseptic solutions in addition to the normal use of the toothbrush. The twice-daily teeth cleaning ritual should never be avoided, but do not forget to listen to your body and not over do it with zeal.
- The removal of the wires is done 7-10 days after the intervention, and after 3 to 6 months the patient will go to the dentist for prosthesis. Periodic routine follow-up is performed at least once every 6 months.
A patient who respects will be present at the scheduled visits after the implantation operation, as instructed by the doctor. Oral health requires a good dose of responsibility. The hardest part of dental implant installation is out of date, all that remains to be done for a brilliant smile is a good relationship, based on trust and communication with an experienced dentist.
