Posted on 1/9/2023 by Fern Creek Dentistry
How Should You Prep For Dental Implant Procedure?When preparing for an oncoming surgery, it is paramount you follow the instructions a dentist gives you. A dentist may advise on what you should do in the hours before the surgery. You may also be prescribed medications that you should pick up following the appointment. You may also need to get a family member or friend to drive you home after the operation or assist you with other tasks afterward.

Implant Procedure Candidacy

A dentist would want to see if you qualify for dental implants. Obviously, you should have missing teeth, however, it is also paramount that your bone structure is determined to be strong. If not, you may have bone grafting done to rebuild the bone volume to ensure your implant stays in place. Besides, you should not chew tobacco or smoke, and if there are conditions that are likely to affect the healing process, they have to be put under control.

Prepping for the Healing and Recovery

You may experience bruising, swelling, and discomfort after surgery. Therefore, consider stocking up on suitable foods like soft foods prior to your appointment. You may also want to take time off work or business and schedule the surgery ahead of possibly a long weekend. This way, you have adequate time for a smooth recovery. Make sure you adhere to the instructions regarding the duration you should wait before starting to eat hard foods. Also, follow the oral hygiene guide that the dentist offers you.

Implants Success Rate

Typically, a dental implant procedure is pretty successful. There, however, may be some variations depending on how properly you care for the implants. People who practice proper oral hygiene and visit a dentist regularly may not have problems with implants. Gum health is paramount for the surgery to be a lasting feat.
