What do I need to do after the dental implant procedure?
It’s a good idea to arrange for someone to drive you home afterwards. Even though you will have had a local anaesthetic you may feel tired or a bit sore once this starts to wear off and so driving is not recommended.
An ice pack applied to the swollen area can help. Your dentist will recommend that you take painkillers to ease any pain or discomfort during the period after treatment.
Avoid tea, coffee, spicy meals and alcohol for 48 hours following this treatment.
Your dentist will advise you as to what routine to follow after this procedure.
