Dental implants are the perfect solution to replace missing teeth, regain a sparkling smile and restore confidence in your appearance. Following a simple procedure, the implant only takes a few days to heal, before providing you with a lifetime of satisfaction. Follow these key tips, in order to look after your new implant:
– After the implant is fitted, there may be some slight swelling and the area will require a few days to heal. During this period, you may be advised to initially apply ice to relieve any discomfort and excess swelling. However, hot or cold foods may slow the healing process. Although the implant and surrounding gums should be kept clean, avoid using a toothbrush for the first few days.
– After any swelling has reduced and the area has begun to heal, brush and floss daily to keep the whole mouth clean and healthy.
– Speak to your dentist if you have any concerns about the healing of your implant and continue to attend regular dental check ups.
Staying on top of your oral care will provide the best results!
