Supported on 4 Implant Surgery Recovery Time
If you are missing some or all of your teeth, a full set of dentures is crucial.
Removable dentures are sturdy, but thanks to Supported on 4, patients from Warner and the surrounding areas now have a better option for false teeth.
Supported on 4 uses dental implants to anchor a denture securely in place.
Osseointegration and Dental Implants
For dental implants to be fully functional, it’s important that osseointegration occurs.
Osseointegration is the process where the dental implant and the jawbone fuse, allowing the implants to function as if they were your natural tooth roots.
Once osseointegration has occurred, dental implants can be fully able to withstand the pressures of biting and chewing.
How Long is Supported on 4 Recovery?
For conventional implant dentistry, osseointegration can take several months or longer. With Supported on 4, the osseointegration process is much faster, though the exact amount of time required can vary per case.
During the consultation process, we can discuss your treatment timeline in detail. That said, the below recovery advice will prove helpful.
Will I Need to Take Time Off from Work?
Some patients consider taking a day or two off from work to focus on recovery after the oral surgery.
The nature of your job and the day of the week you undergo the oral surgery may determine if you need to take time off.
Rest as a Part of Supported on 4 Recovery
After getting Supported on 4 placed, it’s important to focus on resting. This will help ensure the jawbone and gum tissues heal during the early phase of recovery.
Avoid extreme physical activity until your dentist or oral surgeon advises otherwise.
Altering Your Diet for the Healing Process
After the Supported on 4 procedure, it’s a good idea to alter your diet in order to reduce unnecessary discomfort.
We advise patients to take liquids and eat only soft foods that do not require a lot of chewing, which includes smoothies, mashed potatoes, yogurt, cottage cheese, oatmeal, and eggs.
Patients should avoid eating crunchy and crispy foods, as well as any foods that produce small crumbs.
Do NOT use drinking straws until advised since the suction can have negative effects on the incision sites.
Attending Supported on 4 Follow-Up Visits
Over the coming weeks and months, Supported on 4 patients will return to their Warner dentist for a few follow-up visits.
These visits will allow us to monitor how a patient is recovering and offer additional recommendations with regard to side effects and aftercare.
Make sure to attend all of these visits.
