Risks of Not Following Food and Dieting Protocols After Implant Surgery?
As with any surgical procedure, it is important to follow the post-operative instructions provided by Dr. Ficca after the placement of your dental implants. If you do not, you could experience complications such as excessive bleeding, excessive swelling, pain, infection, or even dental implant failure. If you have questions regarding the food and dieting protocols after implant surgery, do not hesitate to call Metrolina Periodontics & Dental Implants, and a member of our knowledgeable team will be happy to help you.
Will I Ever Be Able to Eat Normally Again?
The answer to this question is a resounding, YES! As we have mentioned, one of the best benefits of dental implants is the fact that you will be able to eat normally once your dental implants have healed and your final set of prosthetic teeth have been placed. You will have no dietary restrictions, and you will be able to eat anything you want without fear or anxiety!
Eating Right is Just One Way to Take Care of Your Implants
While eating right is important during your recovery after the placement of your dental implants, it is not the only thing you can do to ensure success. Be sure to follow everything listed on the post-operation documentation provided by Dr. Ficca and his team. This will include resting, proper oral hygiene, pain management, and addressing possible bleeding and swelling after surgery. Properly taking care of your gums and dental implants after surgery will help ensure your procedure is a success and that your teeth last a lifetime.
