A hole or several will be made in the mouth in order to accommodate dental implants. These are basically synthetic tooth roots, topped by crowns. It is more complicated than the procedure of a root canal. Oral and maxillofacial surgeon Dr. Deepak Komath explains what is possible to happen during recovering from dental implant surgery.
Most likely, you’ve had pain after a tooth is removed. If you’re only using the one or two implants you have, pain will last for approximately three days. The discomfort can last up to five days, if you’ve received additional implants or surgery to graft bone. Make sure to contact your dentist right away if your pain persists beyond five days.
The first 24 hours following surgery clean using warm saltwater. It’s a way to prevent infection. The dentist can clean your teeth at least every 24 hours. You may also be given an antibiotic treatment. For the prevention of infections, make sure you take every dose.
Consume only soft food for the first 24 hours following the procedure. Beware of hot beverages. Drink through straws only.
In the initial few days after the procedure, swelling and mild fever are common. If your temperature goes over 101.5 degrees F, contact your oral surgeon immediately. xn6og2wpu3.
