The next stage of this amazing process is recovery. Remember you’ve had some pretty invasive treatment and although some people do manage to return back to work the next day or so, many others will need to take a few days to rest and recover.
So what might you experience?
You may have some slight swelling and/or bruising after being fitted with dental implants. In addition you might feel a little tender in the implant area. Don’t worry, this is perfectly normal so you’ll probably be on soft foods for the first few days until you can gradually re-introduce other foods.
Further more, any swelling or bruising can normally be brought under control within a few days using a combination of hot and cold compresses. The good news is that our team will give you clear instructions on what you need to do to ensure a speedy recovery.
Finally, don’t forget that all the time you’re recovering, your dental implants are working with the surrounding bone tissue as they start to fuse together. After 4-8 weeks this process is normally complete.
