Osseointegration refers to the crucial healing process after a dental implant is placed in a patient’s mouth. It’s the direct, structural, and functional bond formed between living bone and the implant’s surface when subjected to functional loading. For successful osseointegration to occur, several factors play pivotal roles:
- Inflammation management post-operation
- Specific implant design
- The period the implant remains unloaded, typically around 6 months
Postoperative Care for Successful Osseointegration
Ensuring proper postoperative care is essential for achieving optimal osseointegration and preventing potential complications. While your specialist at Dental Asensio will provide tailored advice based on your unique case, there are some general guidelines you should adhere to:
- Avoid rinsing for the first 24 hours post-surgery.
- Apply ice packs to the treated area on the first day to minimize inflammation.
- Maintain a soft diet in the initial days. It promotes osseointegration by relieving pressure on the implant. Preferably consume room temperature foods to prevent bleeding. Some recommended foods include:
- Soft or ground-fish (Ensure minimal chewing and tension on the treated area)
- Fruit juices and smoothies
- Administer antibiotics and analgesics as prescribed.
- Regularly visit Dental Asensio for check-ups post-treatment.
- Refrain from strenuous activities or heavy lifting for the first week.
- Avoid smoking, alcohol, and other similar substances.
