The recovery process from dental implants can be painful and difficult, but our dentist in Lawrence is here to help! 

Whether you have a single missing tooth or several of them, nothing can renew your natural, beautiful smile like dental implants can. Although dental implants are beneficial for a number of reasons, there is a recovery and healing period after they are placed.  Luckily, our dentist in Lawrence has come up with many helpful tips for your recovery, and you can learn about the tips we’ve already gone over in our last blog. Here are our last couple dental implant recovery tips:

#6. Stay on top of your oral hygiene.

While you don’t need to do anything special from an oral care standpoint after your dental implant surgery, it is important to make sure that you stay vigilant with brushing and flossing. Implant failure often occurs as a result of infection or disease around the implant. Poor oral hygiene prevents the implant from healing as it should. Flossing and brushing regularly will help to keep your teeth and gums healthy, and it promotes proper healing.

#7. Report all complications to your dentist.

The healing process is paramount to successful dental implant surgery, so it is important that you report any complications you may be experiencing to your dentist. Complications can include abnormal bleeding and any signs of infection. Also, if you have questions or concerns about the recovery process, don’t hesitate to contact your dentist.
