Post-operative care is critical for a successful recovery from surgery. You must follow all post-operative instructions to ensure a safe and successful recovery.
Taking all medications as prescribed, keeping the surgical site clean, eating soft foods that do not require much chewing, and avoiding strenuous activities is essential.
It is also important to pay attention to signs of infection, such as redness or discharge from the surgical site. You may feel some mild pain and discomfort after surgery. However, contact us immediately if you experience severe pain or other abnormal symptoms.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.
Your denture or appliance might be adjusted or significantly modified to avoid putting any pressure on the new implants before they have healed. In some instances, you will need to go without your denture or appliance for a period (days or weeks) after the implants are placed.
If you undergo general anesthesia or IV sedation, you will need someone to remain with you for the entire day. When getting up from lying down, do so slowly as there is a chance of feeling dizzy. In addition, it would be best if another person assists you when walking.
Lastly, make sure that your designated driver remains at our office during your surgery. We will have to reschedule your surgery if they drop you off and leave. Please notify us at least 24 hours before your appointment for cancellations or rescheduling.
