You may experience a little pain and soreness in the surgical area, irrespective of the tooth extractions involved. The soreness, pain and other post-op discomfort should reduce over the next three days. You should be able to resume your regular lifestyle with moderate activity about a day after the surgery.
Treat your dental implants like you would your natural teeth- with care and good hygiene. You will not need to spend substantial time on a complex care and maintenance routine after implants. Periodic check-ups are a must and so are regular brushing and flossing. Implants may be susceptible to inflammation as well as bone loss if you let plaque accumulate unchecked. Keep your gum tissue and teeth in good condition with regular and proper care and you significantly improve the success rate of the procedure.
Keep in mind that you should get the periodic cleaning and maintenance done by an experienced dentist who is familiar with the All-on-4 technique. An ideal maintenance schedule would be twice a year for a thorough cleaning of the bridges. It ensures that they last long and it also improves the stability of your implants. During the maintenance check-up, we will examine your teeth to see if there are any signs of bleeding, inflammation or debridement. Following this, the dentist will perform a scan to see if the bone structure has changed in the vicinity of the implant.
