How To Care For Newly Fitted Dental Implants

Proper aftercare is crucial after having dental implants fitted. Here are three tips that will help you get the most out of your new implants.

Key takeaways:

– The area surrounding your implant will be sensitive to heat and cold for a while. Hot and cold drinks could cause discomfort and swelling, so it’s best to avoid them until the implant has healed

– Implant healing will take a few days, during which you should not brush or floss the area. When the implant has healed, use a soft-bristled toothbrush and brush your teeth very gently to prevent damage to the implant’s surface

– Avoid plaque buildup and other conditions that could lead to infection by having regular check-ups with your dentist and keeping a good oral hygiene routine

Follow these suggestions and any advice given by dental professionals, and enjoy your new smile!
