Our patients getting dental implants in San Francisco typically report mild to moderate pain during recovery. Rest is recommended for the first 24-48 hours following your procedure. With more complicated procedures, you may experience more pain and require additional recovery time.
Speak to your dentist about your recovery diet. Generally, you'll want to stick to soft foods for 7-30 days. Avoid hot foods and beverages, and do not use straws until you have completely healed. Do not drink alcohol or smoke for at least a week after your surgery.
With proper care, your dental implant will last for many years. Keeping up healthy oral hygiene practices and eating properly will help you maintain your new smile for years to come.

With good dental care your dental implants should last for decades or even the course of a lifetime.
Caring for your dental implants is the same as caring for your normal teeth. Regular brushing and flossing as well as routine dental checkups will keep your dental implants looking great and lasting for decades.
