What can Smyrna, GA area patients expect for recovery after the placement of dental implants?

Patients faced with tooth loss have a few different options to consider when it comes to restoring the smile. Patients need something to reestablish their chewing and speaking efficiency, while also bringing back the natural beauty of their smiles. This is when Dr. David Lamothe and the team at Smyrna Dental and Implant Center of Smyrna, GA may encourage patients to think about options such as dental implants.

A dental implant is a titanium post used to replace missing teeth and allow patients to improve their smile’s health, function, and appearance. Dental implants are incredibly popular because of the many benefits they provide.

Why dental implants?

Dental implants have several advantages over bridges and dentures. They are long-lasting, natural-looking, and just require normal care. However, patients fully understand when they undergo the process of placing dental implants that it is an extensive process. Dental implants are placed during oral surgery. When patients think of surgery, they are often worried about the recovery process.

Recovery following placement

Healing and recovery following the placement of dental implants is relatively short. During the procedure, patients are anesthetized and sedated for the surgery. Patients are given aftercare instructions to follow to ensure the area heals properly. Patients are also advised as to anything that can occur after surgery that may require them to visit the dentist again, including continued bleeding or pain. Recovery is similar to that of any other surgery. Antibiotics may be prescribed if there is any concern of infection following the procedure. This will be discussed with Dr. David Lamothe before the procedure is done to ensure patients are appropriate candidates for additional medications.

Dr. David Lamothe and the team of Smyrna Dental and Implant Center believe in providing patients with a wide range of solutions for their dental health care needs. Contact the team today at (678) 374-3764 to make an appointment to speak to our team about the process of placing dental implants and other restorative solutions for the smile.
