Post-operative care following a dental implant procedure is essential for healing and preventing complications:
After leaving our implant dental clinic post treatment, we suggest you consider relaxing or at least limiting your activity as much as possible for the remainder of the day. Avoid strenuous activity and aerobic exercise for the next 3 days.Oral Hygiene :
Brushing and oral hygiene procedures should continue as usual in all untreated areas. In exposed/ operated areas, limit your oral hygiene to using a medicated mouthwash prescribed by us for the initial 2 weeks. Following this brush very gently in the operated area with a soft bristled toothbrush. In areas covered by periodontal dressing (gum dressing), brush only the chewing surfaces of teeth. Avoid dental flossing in operated areas during the first week following surgery. Undiluted medicated mouthwash, salt water or peroxide rinses should be used during the first week following surgery. Also avoid the use of water irrigation devices such as Water-pik for 1 month following surgery. The exposed operated areas should be gently rinsed with Betadine or Chlorhexidineas as a last oral hygiene procedure at bedtime and again in the morning, after eating and drinking.Diet :
Care should be taken in the immediate postoperative period to minimize contact with the dental implant. Aside from normal hygiene, it is best to completely leave the implant alone for the first 2 weeks after placement. You may want to limit foods to softer items and chew in an area away from the implant during the 10 to 12-week integration stage.Do's :
If you normally wear a removable appliance which replaces missing teeth, and it rests on the operated area, it is best to minimize the use of this appliance as any pressure on the surgical site could be detrimental to healing and cause discomfort.
Implants can be used to fix your dentures
If you have loose or ill-fitting dentures, your ability to eat or speak may become affected. Thanks to advances in dentistry, there is a new procedure whereby your denture can be fixed to your jaw with dental implants.
This treatment, known as implant overdentures, provides you with the opportunity a more permanent solution and can improve your quality of life significantly. You will be able to enjoy your favourite foods again and feel comfortable when smiling, safe in the knowledge that your dentures are staying put.
That approximately 30 million people live with no natural teeth in one or both jaws? But more and more dental patients are opting for dental implants as a means of tooth replacement. Modern titanium implants were first developed in the 1950’s, but archeologists have determined that ancient Egyptians and Mayans were the first cultures to implant artificial teeth.
