The predominant side effects of surgery will arise over the first two days, reaching their worst state by the third
day. These effects should not be an immediate cause for concern, as they are commonly experienced after oral
surgery and surgery in general:
-Soreness: Patients will experience some pain in the jaw and gums, as tissue has been damaged to accommodate
the dental implants. As noted, this discomfort can be controlled via prescription painkillers, until patients feel
comfortable switching to a less powerful medication such as ibuprofen, aspirin, or acetaminophen.
-Bruising: Bruises may appear on the jaw, neck, and gums as a result of your dental implants being installed.
Discoloration is often particularly noticeable once swelling begins to subside, but should be significantly
reduced or gone completely by the end of the week.
-Swelling: It is common for the jaw, gums, and cheeks to swell after implant surgery. Swelling typically lasts
for about a week, but its severity and duration can be reduced through the application of an ice pack over the
first 48 hours. Hold the ice pack to affected areas for 15 minutes at a time, with 15-minute breaks in between
applications. It is also helpful to keep your head elevated whenever possible, even when sitting down and
After one or two weeks, your face should look and feel significantly better, and you should be able to engage in
most daily activities with little to no difficulty. If side effects persist or worsen, or your gums become
increasingly inflamed, contact your dentist as soon as possible. www.implantsolutionsnow.net
The side effects of dental implant surgery rarely persist longer than two weeks, but patients should still be
aware of their implants throughout the healing process. In the following weeks and months, your implants will
need to fuse with surrounding bone tissue in a process called osseointegration. Until healing is complete, certain
precautions to protect your implants should be considered. When eating, avoid chewing on or near the implants
whenever possible. A soft food diet should also be implemented during the first couple of weeks, and any foods
that are particularly hard or chewy should be avoided altogether during recovery. Likewise, hygiene is of the
utmost importance: brush twice a day and floss daily in order to prevent gum disease from forming around
implants and causing them to fail. www.implantsolutionsnow.net
