How to Prepare Yourself for Dental Implant Surgery



Undertaking a dental implant is the best way to restore your chewing capabilities and former bites. Despite the procedure having numerous advantages, it’s normal for first timers to feel anxious about the procedure. Thankfully, the tension and concerns can be eased through proper knowledge on how to prepare yourself for the implant surgery. We spoke with the Dental Implant experts at Nashville Restorative Dentistry to discuss some of the essential things to keep in mind both before and after the procedurRestore.

• Fast

One of the biggest mistakes that many people make is eating a few hours before the surgical procedure. If you’re undergoing sedation, avoid both food and drinks for 4-12 hours before the surgery. To be sure on your specific fasting period, ask your doctor.

• Get comfortable

Many people confuse this suggestion with taking some rest. These two things are very different. When we say get comfortable, we mean for you to wear loose fitting and comfortable clothes and recommend avoiding using any makeup and even nail polish.

• Get enough sleep

Before going to the appointment, do rest well. It will require a lot of strength to heal during the recovery period.

• Meal preparation

This is a practice that should be followed both before and after the implant. During the recovery period, your gums will seemingly be tender making it difficult and painful to chew hard foods. To minimize the pain, try preparing soft foods such as smoothies and soups. Also, try keeping off any spicy and acidic substances since they may induce pain to the loose gums.

• Mind how you plan your events

To remain safe during the recovery period, avoid planning any activity for about one week after the implant. After the surgery, it might be tempting for you to get back to your regular fitness routine as well. Patients are urged to elude from straining themselves since it may affect their recovery period. If possible, the first three days should be devoted solely to rest. This is to facilitate faster healing of your gums.

Conclusion

In addition to these recommendations, make sure to always keep in touch with your doctor in case they note any abnormality including delayed healing. With the above steps, one can be sure of a smooth implant and recovery process.
