For decades, dental implants have been used to replace a single tooth, multiple teeth or a full upper and/or lower set of teeth. They allow these new teeth to feel, look and function naturally, so you can smile, laugh, and eat your favorite meal without any dental issues.
What should I expect after dental implants?
Patients who undergo dental implants may experience some of the typical discomforts associated with any type of dental surgery, such as:
- Swelling of your gums and face
- Bruising of your skin and gums
- Pain at the implant site
- Minor bleeding
If swelling o discomfort gets worse in the days after surgery, contact your oral surgeon.
After each stage of surgery, you may need to eat soft foods while the surgical site heals.
