Dental Implant Surgery: After-Care Tips for Speedy Recovery

Here are some dental implants after-care tips by Dr. Frangopol for a speedy recovery of your dental implant surgery:

The First Two Days: The phase of first 48-hours phase are crucial after dental implant surgery, as precautions during these hours will put your implants on a speedy recovery track. Here’s what you should do:

  • Do not drive back home by yourself if anesthesia hasn’t completely worn off.
  • Drink plenty of cold liquids such as iced teas, carbonated beverages, fruit juice, lemonade, water for the next 4-6 hours.
  • Take complete bed rest on the first day of the surgery as bending, lifting, or strenuous activity will cause increased bleeding.

Diet: The dietary tips are simple – start with soft, mushy, and easy-to-chew food items. Keep it nutrient rich and do not skip meals, as it will help you feel better, gain strength, and heal quicker.

Swelling: Swelling is natural after the surgery. But you can use these tips to keep it minimum:

  • Apply ice packs to your cheek adjacent to the surgical area at regular intervals
  • Sleep with two pillows as keeping your head elevated will help minimize swelling
  • Take medicine as prescribed by your physician
