Are you thinking about getting dental implants? Dental implants can improve your facial structure and give you back your smile. People considering dental implants typically want to know what to expect after surgery, so one question they frequently asked is – What is recovery from dental implants like.
What are dental implants?
Dental implants are used to replace missing or damaged teeth. They are roots or rods, usually made of titanium, which are put in the upper or lower jaw to support artificial teeth. Dental implants provide solid support for replacement teeth by fusing with the jaw. Candidates for dental implants should be in good health, have healthy gum tissue, as well as enough bone to hold the implants.
What is recovery from dental implants like
Recovery from dental implants varies based on the complexity of the procedure done. It typically takes 4-6 months for the implant to completely bond with the jaw.
Patients generally experience mild discomfort after dental implant surgery, but this normally resolves within 2-3 days. Swelling and bleeding from the nose may also occur but is usually short-lived.
Patients should follow the post-op instructions of their surgeon, and take care of the implant site to ensure optimal recovery after dental implant surgery.
