If you have missing teeth and need a dental implant, it is important to be prepared for after the procedure. When you or a loved one is looking for information about what to do after dental implant surgery, please watch this video by our Calgary dentist Dr. Arash Ravanbakhsh, and then give us a call and we would be happy to answer any questions you have about post-operative care.
After you get a dental implant procedure done, some people have a little bit of discomfort and others have no discomfort at all. Usually, we send you home with painkillers and antibiotics for some.
You might have sutures placed that need to be removed later.
Similar to an extraction procedure, you can potentially develop a little bit of swelling and a little bit of pain afterward. If the swelling and pain are prolonged, you should definitely follow up with your dentist, but the actual procedure of getting a dental implant place shouldn’t be a painful one.
Missing teeth are often replaced with dental implants. Knowing what happens after the surgery is important for you to plan for it. If you or someone you love needs to know more about what happens after dental implant surgery, please call us right away for a consultation.
