Will I Experience Any Pain After The All-On-4 Dental Implants Have Been Placed?

Most patients who had their dental implants placed will experience some mild discomfort after the procedure. The anaesthetics usually take some time to wear off, so most patients will not feel anything until the next day. The majority of patients will experience some minor swelling and bleeding, but this is all part of the healing process and completely normal. If the patient experiences any pain, it can be tackled easily with over the counter painkillers.

However, we do need to warn patients not to take any aspirin until the mouth has healed. Aspirin may cause bleeding complications, so it is essential to stay away from aspirin while the mouth is still healing. Additional recommendations will be disclosed to you before the procedure. Every patients also gets the time to discuss their questions and concerns with the oral surgeon.

What about the Maintenance of My All-On-4 Dental Implants?

Taking care of your dental implants is actually quite straightforward, since you need to take care of them as you would take care of your normal teeth. However, there are some special brushes and tools that can make it easier on you. Patients should obtain a toothbrush with an angled neck, this makes it easier to get to the places that are otherwise hard to reach with a normal toothbrush. We also recommend to floss and get some interdental brushes to get rid of plaque between the teeth. Even though dental implants are acrylic and not real teeth, the plaque can still affect your dental health if not removed properly.

In addition to taking care of your teeth, we also recommend a regular visit with the dental hygienist. Cleaning your own teeth is one thing, but there are certain places which can be extremely hard to get to, even with a special brush. By visiting your dental hygienist on a regular basis, you can avoid future problems with your dental implants and keep your mouth healthy.
