What You Should Know About the Dental Implant Healing Process?
Posted on 10/25/2021 by Elmwood Dental Group
When you have lost or missing teeth, dental implants are one of the best treatments that you can receive to help fill the gap. The dentist usually recommends dental implants because they have a range of benefits. Dental implants resemble your teeth, and therefore act and feel like your natural teeth. They also help to maintain your jaw bone integrity which becomes compromised when you lose a tooth or teeth. You can visit our clinic to receive dental implants and ensure that you maintain your dental health after losing your tooth. Our dentists will provide you with all the information that you need to make an informed decision about the process.
What is the time for full recovery after getting dental implants
The healing process after getting dental implants can range from a few days to several months depending on the type of dental implants. For instance, if you get one or two dental implants, the healing can take a few days to fully heal. This is because there is minimal surgery on your gums and jawbone, and the only process is implanting the titanium-based screws into your gums.
On the other hand, if you get a bone graft before getting a full mouth dental implant, you can expect to have a healing time of several months. Bone graft is important if our dentists see that you do not have enough bone tissue to offer support for the dental implants. The dentist harvests bone tissue from one part of your body and adds it to your jaw bone before providing the implants. This is why the healing process will take longer.
Why is it important to know about the healing process
It is important to understand the healing process so that you make the necessary arrangements. For instance, you might be unable to eat hard food as before during the healing process. You will therefore have to adjust your diet to incorporate this.
When you come to our clinic the dentists will offer personalized care and give you advice that will aid the healing process.
