How to prepare for implant dentistry therapy
Implant dentistry is a cutting-edge technology that allows those who have missing teeth to replace those missing teeth with a very natural-looking tooth. The fact that a patient will need to undergo dental surgery in order to have one or more dental implants installed in their mouth makes it essential that they properly prepare for this important surgery. The following information will help those scheduled for implant surgery to understand what is required before undergoing the surgical process.
Plan your meals
Planning out meals for at least two weeks following the surgical procedure is recommended, as it is necessary for the patient to consume soft foods for up to a week. Common food choices can include pasta, soups, smoothies, juices, shakes and applesauce.
Do not eat before the surgical procedure
It is important for anyone undergoing implant surgery to not eat for a certain amount of hours before having the surgery. While most recommendations require patients to not eat about 12 hours before the surgery is performed, it is necessary for each individual patient to check with their dental professional regarding how long they need to fast before having their surgical procedure.
It is necessary for patients to get the right amount of rest after undergoing surgery, making it a good idea for them to remove makeup and wear comfortable clothing before going in for surgery. Resting means participating in no strenuous activities for at least three days after having the surgery performed.
