As with any surgery, the operation for placing the dental implants Sioux falls has some risks and complications that should not be overlooked, however, it is a very safe procedure today.
Slight pain and edema (swelling) are some signs and symptoms that are normal and easy to get around with adequate medication (analgesics, anti-inflammatories). However, some important complications can occur, such as infection or even undesirable damage to important anatomical structures. Infections can be prevented by prescribing antibiotics as a prophylactic measure.
The dental implant rejection (loss of implant) can also be a complication or consequence of these potential complications, if there was normal osseointegration of implants (connecting the tooth to the bone).
As previously mentioned, despite the possible risks and complications mentioned above, surgery for dental implants is currently quite safe as long as there is compliance with some basic care by the professional and the patient.
Does the placement of a dental implant hurt?
The placement of a dental implant usually does not cause pain, as the patient is previously anesthetized. The operation of dental implants is almost always performed under local anesthesia, except in cases of zygomatic implants where it is performed under general anesthesia
Post-operative dental implant
As a general rule, when recovering from dental implant surgery, nothing of concern occurs and does not necessarily require any rest in the postoperative period, nor suspension from work. That is, recovery after surgery is almost immediate, and the patient can lead a perfectly normal life during the entire recovery time, as long as he follows the recommendations provided by his dentist.
In order to minimize some risks and complications, some care is required after dental implantation by the patient, such as:
Take the prescribed medication on time;
Apply ice (indirectly) over the intervention area;
Avoid sudden movements with the head and any more intense physical activity;
Avoid exposure to the sun and heat sources;
Strengthen oral hygiene care;
Take a softer or pasty diet during the 1st week after surgery.
It is therefore not necessary to rest in the postoperative period, and the patient can lead a perfectly normal life as long as the recommendations mentioned above are maintained.
In the case of a bone graft for placing the dental implant, the recovery is similar, except for the fact that it will be necessary to wait for some additional time until the total osteointegration of the implant is verified. There is normally no pain after the placement of the dental implant, (post-operative pain), even if there is a so-called dental implant rejection (loss of the implant).
