You can have a better and shorter recovery period after getting dental implants by following the tips listed below.
Manage the bleeding
Use constant pressure by applying a gauze pad to stop the bleeding in the surgical area.
The bleeding can be controlled, and your overall recovery hastened, if you relax and avoid strenuous activities right after the implant surgery.
Manage pain with prescribed medications
When the anaesthetic wears off, you can manage the pain by taking the pain medication prescribed by the dentist.
Stick to soft diet and liquids
Stick to a soft diet and liquids in the days immediately following the implant placement. Avoid using the area where the implant is located for chewing, for the first week after the surgery.
Maintain good oral hygiene
Clean your mouth by very gently swishing (not gargling) a warm saltwater rinse. You can brush the rest of your teeth, and avoid the area where the implant is placed.
