5 Ways to Prepare for Dental Implant Surgeries
5 Ways to Prepare for Dental Implant Surgeries
January 14, 2022

Dental implant surgeries are a necessary part of oral health, as it keeps the spaces between your teeth consistent. Any dentist will tell you that the absence of even one tooth can affect your entire dental aesthetic as well as utility. Fortunately, getting dental implants is an easy procedure. However, there are some protocols to follow before and after the procedure for a smooth experience. 

 

 

 

Here are 5 steps you should follow for a dental implant procedure.

 

 

 

Virtual Assessment

Before getting into the actual procedure, it’s vital to get a virtual assessment done, so book a meeting with your dentist. Make sure you attend this assessment because it will help your surgeon learn about your entire dental condition, which will eventually impact the surgical procedure. Plus, they will ask you to schedule an appointment for a dental x-ray before the virtual assessment date. 

 

Pre-Medication

Your dentist may prescribe antibiotics and immunosuppressant drugs before the surgery. These meds ensure that your body is free from contaminants. Moreover, it offers a smooth transition process so that your immune system will not attack or detach your implant by mistaking them as a foreign object.

 

Added Surgeries

In some cases, it might turn out that additional surgeries are needed, especially if a patient has weak jaws. Fortunately, dental surgeons are also qualified to provide jawbone grafts or other reformative surgeries. If it is necessary to get these grafts done along with the implants, then don’t hesitate. However, patients must separately schedule their jaw surgery and other additional procedures.

 

Take Leaves

Dental implant surgeries aren't painful during the procedure because your dentist will use anesthetics. However, it will cause pain once the painkillers wear off. Thus, make sure you've taken enough days or a week off from work to safely recuperate.

 

Prepare Post-Care Necessities

You can't eat regular food right after your surgery. Thus, make sure you have soft foods or fluids at hand that you can consume regularly. For the best post-op rehabilitation, refrain from any physical and mental activity throughout your recovery period.

 

If you follow these 5 steps diligently, then getting dental implants can be a hassle-free experience.
