Post-Op Care for Dental Implants
At Marietta Roswell Dental Care, we can provide you with information regarding post-op care for dental implants. This is the most durable and natural-looking way to replace your missing teeth, but it requires oral surgery, meaning there is a recovery process that must be taken into consideration. When you visit our Roswell, GA dental office, we can conduct an examination, take X-rays, and let you know what to expect from the implants procedure. This also includes what to expect during your recovery process. For more information, we encourage you to call (770) 538-1148 and schedule an appointment with Dr. Nalini Kataria. In the meantime, here is what you should know.
What happens before the implant procedure?
Is there anything that can slow down the recovery process?
How should I prepare for the surgery?
What can I eat afterward?
At Marietta Roswell Dental Care, we recommend you eat soft foods that are not too hot or too cold. For example, you should buy yogurt, soft cheese, ice cream, soup to eat at a warm temperature, and fruit to make smoothies. This way, you can receive the nutrition you need without irritating your gums. You can slowly begin to add normal food back into your diet, but should avoid eating anything hard, sharp, or difficult to chew for several days. For example, eat a hamburger without the bacon or an omelet instead of waffles. During your recovery, you need to make these simple adjustments that allow you to eat what you need without exposing your gums to anything harmful.

Do I need to do anything to treat the site of the surgery or my gums in general?
When will it be safe to go back to work?
Will it be obvious that I had implant surgery?
What is the recovery process like when the tooth is attached?
Once the titanium implant and your jawbone have fused together, your jaw will provide a base of sturdy support for your replacement tooth. Essentially, it will be as strong as a natural tooth would be. Since the invasive portion of the procedure takes place when we surgically implant the post, attaching the crown is not an issue. You may feel some slight sensitivity in your gums, but this will be minor and easy to control with ibuprofen. There will be no swelling or extensive recovery associated with this aspect of the process. You will most likely only need to go through the recovery stage once.
To learn more about post-op care for dental implants, call 770-538-1148 and schedule an appointment with our Roswell, GA dental office. Dr. Nalini Kataria will be happy to answer any questions you have, so you can be confident in your decision to get started.
