Surgery for dental implants in Fort Collins, CO is relatively straightforward, and with numbing agents, you are unlikely to feel any pain. Still, there is some preparation that you can do to ease your mind and make the experience all the better.

Ask Your Fort Collins, CO Implant Dentist Questions

Oral surgery can put anyone on edge, but you may feel more at ease if you know what to expect—from the steps on implant day to the recovery afterward.

Our dental team believes that there are no silly questions. Therefore, we encourage you to ask away. If you leave our dental office and think of another question on the way home, give us a call.

Treat Yourself to a Favorite Meal Before Dental Implant Day

There may be a few dietary restrictions for a few days following implant placement. So, before your implant surgery, we encourage you to indulge in your favorite meal. Dine out or order in but choose something you love for dinner that may be restricted for a few days after surgery.

Prepare Yourself for Aftercare

Following implant surgery, you may experience a few days of minor pain and swelling. Be sure to have what you need on hand to see you through, including ibuprofen, ice packs, and soft foods like creamy soups, puddings, and yogurt. Also, keep ice packs in the freezer and ready to go as needed.

You may also recruit a friend to drive you home from your implant surgery. This is essential if you’ve opted for specific types of sedation dentistry in Fort Collins, CO.
