Benefits of Dental Implants
What we will do with a dental implant, is to locate the tooth that is causing the problem and to remove it, so that it can do no further damage. Following that, we will then have to do some minor and pain-free surgery on the jawbone, which we will then have to let heal before we move onto the next stage. That next stage requires us to apply a compound that is going to act as the new base for your dental implant, keeping things exactly where they should be. Last but not least, we then place the dental implant into the mouth, bringing you one step closer to that perfect smile.
Dental Implant Recovery Time
Once the dental implant procedure has been finalized, you are going to be in a little discomfort, as the healing process takes place, but we assure you that it is nothing to worry about. Throughout this healing process, we will make sure to book you in for regular checkups, so that we can make sure that everything is going as it should.
Once the healing is over, you will have that perfect smile you have always dreamed of. The swelling is going to take up to a week to go down, but the full recovery of the jawbone could take as long as six months or more. Each person is different, so the time will vary from patient to patient, but we will keep you updated with your progress with every visit you make after the procedure.
Care for your Tooth Implant
It is important that you make sure that you take great care of your new dental implant so that it heals as quickly as possible and causes you no issues. Make sure that you brush your teeth twice a day, and that you use a low-abrasive toothpaste when doing so.
Meanwhile, you will want to get yourself a nylon coated interdental toothbrush with soft bristles, which is going to help with those harder to reach areas. Finally, it is important to make sure that you floss with an implant specific floss which we can provide you with.
