Caring For Patients During The Dental Implant Healing Stages

September 30, 2022

Dental implants can be a relatively complex procedure for patients. Providing the right care during the dental implant healing stages will help your patients feel comfortable and supported during their entire implant journey. Below, we’ll go over the key dental implant healing stages- and how you can best help patients every step of the way.

Before Dental Implants

A successful implant recovery begins before a patient ever enters surgery. Patients who are well-prepared for their implants (both physically and mentally) will have the easiest time in recovery. Therefore, it’s important to make sure your equipment is up-to-date. Consider upgrading your dental imaging tools for clearer and more accurate implant consultations. You might also consider additional training for bone grafting or other pre-implant procedures that might be helpful for your patients.

Immediately Following Implant Surgery

After the dental implant procedure, patient recovery will mostly be in the patient’s own hands. You can help your patients in recovery by making sure they clearly understand your post-surgery care guidelines. Good communication and clear written instructions will go a long way in preventing infections and promoting a good recovery. Consider your practice’s policies and make sure you are properly supporting patients following their surgery.

Permanent Crown Placement

Patients will need to be fitted with their permanent crowns several weeks after their implant surgery. Technological advancements have made crowns stronger, more realistic, and easier to use. Make sure patients are educated on their new crowns before they are placed. This will set them up for success as they adjust to life post-implants.

Providing Follow-Up Care

Follow-up care is crucial during the dental implant healing stages. Of course, it’s important to make sure that your dental tools and procedures are up-to-date so you can provide the best follow-up care. However, your communication is just as important. Think about your patient outreach methods to make sure you are reaching patients in the best possible way.
