WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT AFTER MY DENTAL IMPLANT SURGERY?
Dental implant surgery is typically performed in 2 separate procedures. The first procedure involves the placement of the titanium post (fixture). After this dental implant post has been placed, stitches will be applied to the surgical site to ensure proper healing. These stitches are removed once the surgical site has fully healed. Immediately following dental implant surgery, patients may experience some minor pain, discomfort, and tenderness in the jaw. An antiseptic mouthwash may be prescribed to ensure proper healing and that the surgical site stays clean.
Following the placement of a dental implant post, patients will undergo a period of osseointegration. During this process, the titanium post of the dental implant fuses and adheres with the jawbone. This process typically takes 3-6 months. After osseointegration, a second dental implant procedure will be scheduled and then your permanent dental crown will be fabricated by Dr. John Koutsoyiannis. A dental implant specialist will provide you with detailed post-operative instructions and answer any questions you may have about dental implants in NYC.
