What’s next when you have had dental implants in Perth?
There are several stages to the process of getting dental implants in Perth. While the exact content of each of these stages varies from patient to patient, there are some details that apply to almost everyone. When you have dental implants with Elite Perio, we give you all the general details as well as the specifics of the treatment plan that we create just for you.
It’s still great to get a bit of information before you even have your first appointment. This allows you to prepare any questions you might have and makes the information flow less overwhelming on the day of your consultation. Our team do all they can to ensure that you get the details you need in a way that is manageable and jargon-free.
Why is the healing period important?
It’s easy to focus on the fitting process when you are thinking of getting dental implants, but many people don’t realise that the healing period afterwards is a key part of treatment. It’s so important that, at Elite Perio, we would go so far as to say that it forms a part of the treatment. Once you have had your dental implants in Perth fitted, they need time to fully integrate with the existing bone tissue. If this process does not go well, it can affect the success of the dental implants. If it goes smoothly, it is what makes dental implants so secure and easy to use.
What can you do to help the healing process?
The best things you can do to help the healing process are taking good care of yourself and being gentle with your new dental implants. You will need to take a few days to rest completely after getting dental implants. This allows your body to recover from the minor surgical process that is required to fit them. You will be given instructions by the team at Elite Perio for keeping the area clean and reducing the chance of infection.
You will be on a limited diet for a short time after dental implants in Perth. Once this period is over, you will be able to choose from a wide range of foods again.
