If you’re considering dental implants, hat’s off to you! Las Vegas dental implants can change your life in more ways than you think. You’ll enjoy the beautiful look of healthy, white, straight teeth, as well as the peace of mind of knowing that your mouth is in good health. But if you’re going to have dental implants, you should know a few dos and don’ts for after the procedure. Here are a few:
Do: Eat Well
A proper, nutritious diet is super important, even if you can’t chew properly right after your dental implant procedure. Before your surgery, prep foods that will be easy to eat once you’re home. Yogurt, cottage cheese and pureed vegetables are great to have around to give you the vitamins and proteins you need.
Do: Prepare for Maintenance
It’s important to learn how to properly care for your dental implants. After all, the longevity of your implants depends in part on how well you maintain them. Talk to your dentist about proper care and don’t be afraid to ask lots of questions.
Don’t: Pick Up Bad Habits
Tooth loss is often the effect of bad habits or poor maintenance. After you’ve restored your smile with dental implants, don’t pick up bad habits – like smoking, chewing tobacco, or sugar addictions. Try to keep your teeth – and body – as healthy as possible.
Don’t: Be Impatient
Any surgical procedure takes time to recover and see the final result. Don’t rush back to your daily routine or “regular” foods. Be sure you’re giving yourself time to rest and recuperate. We advise taking an easy week after the procedure to ensure you heal properly.
If you’ve been living with rotting, unhealthy teeth, don’t wait any longer to get the healthy, beautiful smile you’ve always dreamed of. Dental implant surgery can be easier – and more cost effective – than you ever thought.
