After the Surgery

After the procedure, you may rest for some time. But as soon as you feel able, you can go home. Please remember that some amount of swelling and minor bleeding is normal. To speed the recovery process, always follow your surgeon’s instructions, like:

The Procedure

Surgery is needed to place the implants in your jawbone. Overtime, successful dental implants will depend on the jawbone fusing to the implant.

You can help this process along by maintaining clean teeth and gums over the next few months.

Just before the procedure, you will be asked to rinse your mouth with an antiseptic. Medications to help you relax or get you to become sleepy will be given to you.

A Strong foundation for Implants

Possessing a healthy mouth is equally as necessary for implants as it is for natural teeth. If you don’t have adequate healthy bone or gum tissue in your mouth, you will need a graft before implants can be placed. Grafting helps develop a strong foundation for the implants. You’ll need to wait for a graft to heal before you can have implant surgery.

If you have periodontal disease, it will also need to be treated prior to the implant procedure.

Dental Evaluation

A dental evaluation is necessary to determine whether you are a good candidate for dental implants or not. The evaluation involves a dental exam, a dental and medical history, and imaging tests.

Included in the exam is the study of the health and structure of your mouth. This will help the dental team understand the placement of the implants. The figure below illustrates what your dentist needs to understand before the procedure takes place.

Have You Lost A Single Tooth, Several Teeth,
Or All the Teeth in Your Mouth?

Do you feel uncomfortable eating or speaking or even flashing that irresistible smile?

Implants can help!

You may have lost a tooth or several teeth due to:

  • Injury
  • Tooth decay
  • Periodontal disease (gum or bone infection)

Whatever the reason, dental implants can replace missing teeth with a more natural look and feel compared to dentures and other dental restorations.

  • Nose bleeds

Causes of Hypertension

There are two types of hypertension: primary of essential hypertension and secondary hypertension.

For the majority of adults, there is no recognizable cause of high blood pressure. This type of high blood pressure has a tendency to develop progressively over several years.

Several people have hypertension caused by an underlying condition. This type of hypertension is likely to appear suddenly and lead to a higher blood pressure compared to primary hypertension, like:
