How to Prepare for Dental Implants

Decaying and missing teeth may be something you want to hide, but how they look is just the tip of the iceberg. Allowing damaged teeth to stay in your mouth can cause jawbone deterioration and surrounding teeth to fall out. Thankfully, the highly skilled and experienced doctors at Paradise Dental offer expert dental implant procedures to stop this from happening immediately. 

Dental implants are the most durable, long-lasting, and natural-looking tooth replacement method used in dentistry. They are composed of titanium posts to replace tooth roots with an utterly natural-looking crown attached to match the rest of your smile.

If you are interested in a dental implant procedure to bring life back to your smile, follow along as the Paradise Dental team shares advice on how to prepare for dental implants. 

Rest Before Your Procedure

Any surgical procedure puts stress on your body. It is essential to get plenty of rest and a solid night of sleep before the day of your dental procedure. Allowing your body plenty of downtime will assist in kickstarting your body’s recovery process. 

Soft Foods

After your procedure, a trip to the grocery store may not be in the cards. Be sure to stock up on your favorite soft foods to keep at home, as hard foods will not be your friend during recovery. Nutritional water, oatmeal, soup, and any other of your favorite soft foods are recommended to ensure you are still retaining a healthy diet and eating enough food. Be sure to talk to your dental professional about how long it is required or recommended to stay on your soft food diet. 

Schedule Around Your Procedure

Odds are, after your dental implant procedure, you will need plenty of rest. If this is your first time getting dental implants and you are unsure of how you will be feeling after your procedure, we recommend clearing your schedule for at least two days after your appointment to allow plenty of time for rest and recovery. This includes work, exercise, and social activities.
