Pre-Dental Implant Procedure: What to Expect

There are a few things that the patient is required to do before the procedure starts. The typical pre-dental implant procedure includes the following, which will be carried out by our experienced dental professionals at Dr Liu Family Dental.
•  A complete dental exam
•  Review the patient’s medical history
•  Developing a dental plan
•  Providing the patient with information on the procedure
•  Scheduling the best time for the procedure

Post-Dental Implant Procedure: What to Expect

Dental implant aftercare should be taken just as seriously as it will determine how quickly and how well you are able to recover after the procedure. There are, however, some things that you can do to make the recovery process easier and quicken the healing process.
•  Use over-the-counter medication that your dentist prescribes
•  Complete the medication to prevent any possible infection
•  Avoid food that is spicy or too hard
•  Try a bite guard to keep the dental implant safe from any strenuous activity
•  Visit your dentist for regular checkups so that we can monitor your progress

Dental Implants: What You Need to Know

Apart from these tips, there are also some other factors to consider when getting a dental implant, such as the following;

Stop Tobacco and Alcohol Use

Smoking and drinking can both slow down the healing process and make problems more likely to occur following surgery. Alcohol consumption should be avoided by patients throughout the week leading up to and following surgery. Alcohol intake should be stopped both before and after surgery since it might have a negative impact on your overall health and lead to bleeding complications as well.

Be Clear About Your Current Medications

If you are taking any medication for an underlying illness, it is important to share that with your dentist before the procedure, including vitamins and supplements. While recuperating after surgery, using specific prescription drugs, vitamins, and supplements may cause complications. For instance, medications such as Coumadin, Aspirin, and even Vitamin E supplements can all lead to bleeding problems and should be avoided at all costs. It is possible to lower the risk of medication-related problems by taking the appropriate measures after reviewing your existing medications with your surgeon.

Follow Good Oral Hygiene

To insert the implant into the jaw during dental implant surgery, a tiny incision must be made within the gums. This means, for it to heal, it is beneficial to adopt good oral hygiene practices well before surgery to limit the number of germs in the mouth and to avoid gum disease. This will prevent the incision from becoming infected. In case you’re wondering what those good oral hygiene practices are, we are ready to provide you with all of the information you need every step of the way throughout the dental implant procedure.
