What to Expect After Dental Implant Treatment
Most patients who receive dental implant treatment have minimal post-op pain for a day or two that can be controlled with over-the-counter pain medicine like ibuprofen or another anti-inflammatory brand. We will discuss which will work best for you. Often times, there is less discomfort compared to an extraction, and healing times are generally faster.
We will go over how to care for your dental implant as it heals so that you can enjoy an optimal outcome.
Within a few days, you should begin to feel significantly better as your body’s natural healing process takes over. If discomfort persists, we recommend that you contact our office right away. We are here to make sure that your dental appointment and the healing process go smoothly.
