Home After Care - Dental Implant Restoration
Dental Implant Restoration must be cared for to ensure long term success. Follow some of these tips for best results:
If an anesthetic was used to perform your procedure, try not to chew any food or gum until the numbness has ended.
Avoid hard foods that will cause you to grind your teeth.
If you grind your teeth at night, let us know and we will discuss wearing a nightguard.
Resume your brushing and flossing routine, but be gentle. We may recommend a water pick, interproximal brush or specialty floss.
Make sure to visit us for professional cleanings on a regular basis (usually every 3-6 months).
If you have any increase in bleeding or pain or other unusual issues, feel free to call us. However, it is normal to feel some pain and discomfort for a few days after the procedure.
