What to Expect After Dental Implant Surgery

Patient With a Dentist

Getting dental implants can range from a simple, streamlined procedure to a more involved oral surgery. It all depends on what type of care you need. For most people, getting a few dental implants is a relatively straightforward, easy-to-recover-from process.

For the first day or two after your dental implant placement, treat those areas delicately. It’s common to feel a little irritation in your gums, because of the small opening that was created. You can take an over-the-counter pain reliever if you like, but you might not even need one. Try not to chew on that area as the gum heals. Avoid things like carbonated beverages, alcohol, drinking through a straw, or hard-textured foods.

If you’re undergoing full mouth rehabilitation where all of your teeth are being replaced with dental implants, the recovery might take a little longer. We might even prescribe a pain reliever to ensure you’re comfortable as your gums heal. Fortunately, the bone that the implants are set into doesn’t have the same pain receptors as what your gums do. So even if you do have a little discomfort, it should be kept to a minimum.

As your gums heal and the bone integrates, we’ll have you wear an interim restoration to protect the gums underneath. Once your implants are fully integrated, we’ll fit you with a permanently affixed prosthesis. From there, it’s like having a whole set of natural teeth all over again. You can eat whatever you like and care for them as you would any other teeth.

Even our patients who have been told in the past that they are not good candidates for dental implants have found options at our clinic.

  • Mindy W.

    This is a very welcoming center. Everyone seemed very competent and helpful. I had an oral biopsy today. No waiting. The staff were ready for me and all was in place. Dr. Yagoubian was warm , cheerful and I felt in extremely capable hands. I am so grateful I was referred to him. Sincerely, Mindy W.

  • Raj G.

    Dr. Yagoubian is excellent. I was in state for business when my wisdom tooth broke. I was lucky enough to find Dr. Yagoubian's office. Everyone there was professional and courteous. The procedure went smoothly. Dr. Y is highly skilled, meticulous, and a very personable health care provider (a rarity in the field, in my opinion). If you need an oral surgeon, I highly recommend him.

  • Chahab S.

    Dr Yagoubian is an excellent oral surgeon, supported by a very professional staff. They made the experience as stress-free as possible. Highly recommended.

  • Paul M.

    A positive experience from start to end. I got a sense that this was going to go well and it did. Two extractions, two implants, bone graft and removal of four part bridge. Leaving part of the bridge on one tooth. If there were 10stars they would be for Torrance oral surgery group and Dr. Alicia Wolf / Blanco Demtal Group for recommending Ben.
