Implant operation recovery requires time and attention. The recovery process begins right after you complete the first stage of your treatment. In the following period aftercare is essential. Depending on what your implant operation is including the healing time can differ between 3 to 6 months. If you are having bone grafting and/or sinus lifting as an addition to dental implants, the waiting period after the implant operation is longer.
Even though the implant is in, it still needs to fuse with your jawbone. Your gums also need to heal. This process takes time and it is known as the Osseointegration period. During this time, aftercare following the implant operation and good oral hygiene are indispensable. This is because the fusion process is somehow exposed then the implant can fail.
If you follow these points, you would severely decrease the chance of complications. When the healing period is complete, you can come back to receive your implant crown or a fixed prosthesis. At this point, you will have the smile you are longing for. This also means that you still need to protect & maintain that smile.
